Still works & do the job
By , for WP 4.1.1

Okay, it´s not updated since 3 years, but this plugin is easy to use. It still works and does a great job. It proteced my side 3 times in 4 weeks from attacks of China, Russia and Brazil. Thx a lot.

I use it on all my sites

The only way this could be better is, if this plugin hooks into a centralized service on the internet that takes note of the blocked IP addresses and attempts to either notify compromised computer owners, or keep a blacklist of the most commonly blocked IP addresses. But even as-is, this is one of the most useful security plugins out there. And it's free!

Unbelievably Good

This plugin works like a charm. It caught 97 attempted logins this morning alone.

Installed by Default

I install this plugin by default on all my sites. Works like a charm!

However, we all should remain aware of the potential for hacks described in at least one thorough 1-star review by Chltx. Check it out and be aware.

Even though the plugin is compatible up to WordPress 3.3.2, it works perfectly with my blog which is running WP 4.4.1. Very effective plugin.
