Nice, have installed this plugin on several sites. Setup is easier then many other plugins and I like that it is lightweight. I had a question about automatic updates and was answered instantly by chat on the website. That is quite unique..

Super protection. I'm very happy with this plug in.

No problem with compatibility. No slow page loads. Easy to install and configure. Does a great job protecting my site. The biggest plus is the support. I ran into a log in problem and sent a support ticket for help. Less than 24 hours later, Paul responded. His solution was perfectly accurate. What impressed me was the fact that this was a holiday weekend and still Paul felt I was important enough to help right away. Thanx Paul. I highly recommend this product.

Great Plugin!

I love this plugin! I am a freelance web designer and I now use it for all of my clients. But that is where my beef comes in. This plugin seems to give notification messages for everything... ease up on the notifications. :) My clients don't care (because I care for them) and as a developer, I don't need to see them. Maybe you could allow people to opt out of all the notifications...

Super Support!

We were having an issue with one of our sites that we use this plugin on. The .htaccess file was getting corrupted. We found that Simple Firewall was causing the .htaccess file to be re-written about every minute. I reported the problem on the WordPress forum expecting to never get a response. Paul responded almost immediately, took the problem seriously and made a change to fix the issue. A new version was out the next day.

Since then the .htaccess file has not changed or been corrupted again.

We really appreciated the support received for this free plugin, better than you get on many commercial plugins.

Great Security Plug-in!

Simple Firewall has everything needed to keep any WordPress site safe from hackers. It is easy to use and has lots of great features. I wouldn't want to run my websites without it!

Easy to install and it works
By , for WP 4.2.2

My site was getting hacked daily. We had multiple vulnerabilities through a plugin and other problems that aren't easy to fix quickly.

I installed this and haven't had a single problem since.

The installation was easy. Just install, activate, and read the info at the "more info" link for each individual option before you enable it. The advice was easy to understand.

We've had a lot of problems with a lot of plugins on our highly-customized site, but not a single problem with this one.

I'm very grateful to the developer.

Great for eCommerce site
By , for WP 4.2.2

I installed WP Simple Firewall because it has all of the auditing and security features needed for my eCommerce site. It is a robust firewall plugin — it took a little to understand all the features, but support is incredibly responsive to resolving any issues.

Awesome Plug

Thank you to Paul and the Simple Security Firewall team. Super nice people and a great plugin.

Powerful and lightweight firewall

Keeps out the bad guys without overdoing it with massive IP blocking lists (since IPs can be spoofed, anyway). The Audit Trail Viewer shows you what's been blocked and why. Fantastic support for a free plugin!

A perfect tool for the natural WP user
By , for WP 4.2.2

Several times I have been exposed to hacking attempts on my website. It's annoying to find that someone is hacking a website to display their political messages or steal information from it. A real pain and many times this requested many hours of work to recover the site and get it back online.
I have tried various solutions to this but not with much success due to the complicated nature of these tools and other issues. Finally I've found this plugin and decided to give it a try. Wow! Works perfect and my hassle is over. No BS, just fact. Is THE best plugin for this purpose I've found tried and is the first time I really recommend something. Thank you guys!
