Human spam check not work properly and premium copy has high price for me to purchase it

Truly the best security plugin I've tried
By , for WP 4.5.2

Reasons to use:

It's Free

Stops xmlrpc.php attack which slows down your blog

Login using two-factor authentication and IP address restriction, this is good because it verifies that it’s you that is logging in

It has way more features, but for just these three, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Just Cool
By , for WP 4.5.2

I found it just cool with lots of features that are flexible to tweak. I have also not experienced it having conflict with other plugins. I highly recommend shield.

Best Security Plugin I've used
By , for WP 4.5.2

Overall this is the best security plugin I've used for my agency work. I've found that it does its work well while not slowing down the site one bit.

Def a great choice. I'm a recent convert from Sucuri (which is a good plugin, but tends to slow sites down in my experience).

Excellent Job

Plugin ok but make some kind of problems when register
By , for WP 4.5.3

Well i was using this plugin long time. But until now when i noticed plugin make problems for people that want to register on my site.

I have 2x sites where the plugin is clean installed and activated. The protection login is acivated as well. When people want to register wordpress send them a register link on mail. In my case the register link always was sending but not 100% work. My users email me many times they cant register because of the link expiry time. Funny thing is they click it right away they recive the mail. If they clicked the link some message about pasword link expire problem. They was not able to create account.
I uninstalled the plugin from my 2x sites and working so it seems the plugin make this problem..
