Must-have security plugin.
By , for WP 4.2.2

I love the hardening feature, and the post-hack options to easily reset all passwords and security keys are very convenient. The basic scan is helpful for finding malware, iframes and scripts. Yes, they do want to sell you the premium plugin, but the free version has some excellent features that make it worth your while.

It would be great to be able to change the wording of the password reset email, I hope that's an option in future releases.

I've used Sucuri for about a year and I remain quite impressed. The developers are obviously top-notch having built such a high-quality product to enhance security on WP sites and blogs. Many thanks Sucuri team!

This plugin has prevented many ongoing attacks. I can highly recommend it's effectiveness in keeping the hackers out and away.

Does what I needed it to, and more

I was scouting around for Login Auditing initially, and came across this plugin from the search. I've used their online scanner before for several blacklisting issues on sites I've assisted with, and they've been solid on the issues found. Not only does this do all the logging I need, it's helped me with the pointers towards hardening I know I've needed, but never knew where to turn for it. You get what you pay for, so of course they have a seperate SAAS/Proxy under a paid service, but for the free plugin, I don't know what all the 'one stars' emotional issues are

Great plugin that offers Highly Recommended and Proven Security Hardening.
By , for WP 4.1.1

I chose this plugin because Sucuri is a GO TO for security issues with WordPress daily. So by work and name I would choose this plugin over others, because I trust their focus more than others who focus on multiple things other than pretty much just website security. If you are reading this, I believe you should give this plugin a try.


This plugin is very simple to me, even though I am experienced with WordPress.

I think it covers things pretty simple.

It also offers some hardening techniques not found in other popular security plugins today, at least that I have found.

Fixing security issues is extremely simple, just click your choice it does the rest.

Hardening your site is extremely simple as well, just click your choice it does the rest.

There are some other more advanced options and notification settings that are very useful!

The Best for Recovering from Hacks
By , for WP 4.1.1

A company called me saying that Google reported their site was hacked but the site looked fine. The hack was sending different info to Google than to regular users. This plugin identified all changed core files and easily fixed them in a matter of minutes. Great!
