Inconsistent and poor support
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really wanted to like this plugin. It is supposed to do exactly what I wanted it for, but unfortunately it is often not working and does not allow access to my site consistently. Basically, when the password is entered the page fails to connect regardless of which browser is used. Therefore, I am constantly having to choose between disabling the plugin and leaving my personal site vulnerable to random public viewing or closing down my site to everyone for an indeterminate length of time.

When I first installed it a couple months ago, it worked great for a couple weeks. Then it stopped working unexpectedly and inexplicably. I got a quick response from the plugin creator on the support forum, but no real help or explanation. He could not, or at least did not, inform me that I had any incompatibility issues. After a week or two I noticed an update, which I downloaded, and the plugin was working for several weeks. Then about a week ago the plugin stopped working again. This time no response from the support forum and I have no idea when or if it will be working again.
