Paid for Premium NO RESPONSE TO SUPPORT QUESTION
By , for WP 4.2.2

Only giving this 1 star because 0 stars is not an option. I paid for the premium version and the password would only work by hitting enter twice, the first time it deletes the password and then the second hit it lets you in but says you have invalid credentials. I can't send people to my web site with those instructions. I sent 2 support requests neither of which were answered AT ALL. As in, no response whatsoever. Did I mention I PAID for the PREMIUM version? Unbelievable. He should be kicked off of wordpress. I want my money back.

Deceptive description

The free version protects your entire blog - that's all.

expensive and freemium politic
By , for WP 3.8.1

I think it's too expensive considering the target of use and the per number of license buy is a big limitation.
Better pay once and install it wherever you want.
No changes possible in "free" version.
Better other solutions.

Safari remains double open
By ,

Hi,
the plugin is smart, but does not work with Safari:

1. did not ask for password.
2. As I entered the page-name differently the plugin asked for the password but a wrong password was enough to pass.

I think there is still some work to do ..

Perfect way to deceive customers....give 0.01% free, but pay for 99.99%, another tin of snake oil.

Messes up blog even after being removed
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin messed up my blog.

Even after I removed it, I would occasionally get the following error:

"You have been logged out.
The password you submitted was wrong.
Security Provided by Platinum Mirror LTD (programmer: Daniel Chatfield)
login / Password
Login"

I asked for support a week ago but to no avail. Plugin author is not responding and my blog is still messed up.

Until my issue has been resolved, I won't remove this review.

Think twice before using. There are many free, better alternatives out there.

Doesn't seem to work!

Worked in the beginning but now I have to enter the password several times.

This is a con, scam and deception

You have to pay for any useful features!

Misleading information

Misleading description. Most of the best features have to be paid for.

Only premium worthwhile
By , for WP 3.5

Doesn't do anything useful unless you pay for it. This is really a demo for the Premium version more than it is a working plugin.
