It's the best plugin to secure WordPress.
- It has the worst UI ever seen.
- It replaced the whole .htacess file and occupy it, it removed other plugins settings (like AIO Security & wordfense) and even the original WordPress code without asking for approval or permission and didn't show enough details about what it was intended to do.
I've used this on/off for a few years. Requires a little technical knowledge but overall good selection of security tools.
We started using it after our site was hacked and had pages replaced. Years later, we are still using it and haven't been hacked since!
Never before have I used a plugin with such good support. The plugin does exactly what it promises.
I bought this plug in 4 years ago in 2012 after having a co-hosted site popped by an unrelated dodgy plugin. I have used this across all of the sites I host and have never had a successful malicious attack since installing.
Admittedly there is a slight learning curve to begin with, but the setup wizard has got better and better and, unlike many other offerings, the documentation is very good for those interested enough to dig into it.
More than a simple security product, the support is incredibly responsive and the product is continually evolving to stay ahead of the most common attack vectors. If you are looking for a robust tool to keep your WordPress site(s) safe, you've found it.
I have been using BPS Pro for a number of years on a group of sites. It works as stated....it protects my sites.....it has foiled a number of attempted hackings etc. On the few occasions I have required support then the support has been received very quickly and the problem/issue sorted in a very short time. I throughly recommend this plugin...I wouldn't operate a wordpress based site without this plugin installed.
I used this plugin in the past, quite difficult to set up and the interface not particularly user friendly compared to other security plugins, but it is seriously powerful and the best I found to feel secure.
I would suggest to make the plugin and all its settings easier to temporarily deactivate when installing WP updates and new plugins. ALso had serious issues with FTP changes when the plugin was deactivated, the directories were still protected and all my changes kept being quarantined regardless.
Great security plugin...
When I first started using his Plugin years ago it did a great job. Now they have so greatly improved it that it is truly amazing.
The only thing I might suggest is some sort of warning that what it is doing is very technical in nature. So, to go beyond default options you should have very in depth knowledge of the potential impacts of what you are choosing to do.
