I tried a couple other WP security plugins. They're either complicated or out of date. This one is simple to use and it just works! The developer is very responsive. Highly Recommended...
I had numerous attacks on one of my sites, thousands of strange coded page requests and efforts to break in.
(It looked like China and Ukraine hackers have joined forces to hack into this lousy blog).
I have installed the plugin and the page requests and strange activity decreased totally.
The interface is simple (for a non tech guy like me) and is explained in simple English and not in programmers code jargon.
Everything now works great and I feel more secure.
The best part is that on the other side of this plugin there are REAL PEOPLE I could communicate with.
Trust me, if you want to avoid a nightmare, it's the plugin you need.
There are a lot of security plugins out there but for what I want this one is the best of the bunch.
It's easy to set up and use, plus two-factor authentication is a HUGE bonus!
Don't waste time sifting through the other security plugins, choose this one and be done with it.
Simplicity is an art and most plugins out there are so bloated and full of rubbish and end up making your site slow and vulnerable.
This plugin, on the other hand, respects simplicity and respects the user. It does all it says it does without getting in your way.
Also, the support is quite good and the developers respond to questions.
Easy to use, well thought out, a couple unique features, even 2-factor authentication through email, richly documented, dedicated support, ...
This may well be the best security plugin around. One drawback is that it's not entirely compatible with multisite yet. This makes me a little uncomfortable, so I'll move on for now. Still 5 stars is well deserved. It's a vote to make it more compatible too though. I'll be back when I have a test site :)
I have using Simple Security Firewall for the last several months since some of our company sites were getting attacked. Since I installed this plugin and made a few adjustments for my needs on the sites. I have not had a problem at all. Simple Security Firewall is easy to understand and get going.
I've experimented and tested all the free security plugins. Most plugins are great, but some are bloated with unnecessary features.
Simple Security Firewall stands out as one of, if not, the best security plugins. It offers all the important features plus a few extra gems. I will be using it on all my sites.
I really love this plug-in. Prior to its installation, we were getting hit by brute force attacks. Those no longer occur or if they are, we aren't seeing them.
Very easy to use and very effective plug-in
This is a very, very good plugin. It is easy to set up and once in place you won't even know it's doing it's job. Install it now — you won't regret it!
