6.8.1 iThemes Security Pro
The Best WordPress Security Plugin
Security and Protection of WordPress
Built by WORDPRESS security experts.
iThemes Security Pro takes the guesswork out of WordPress security. You shouldn’t have to be a security expert to use a security plugin, so iThemes Security Pro makes it easy for you to protect your WordPress site.
WordPress Violence Protection
Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed per user with WordPress brute force protection. If someone tries to guess your password, they will be locked out after a few attempts.
File change detection
If someone manages to get into your site, they may add, delete or change files. Get email alerts showing any recent file changes, so you know if you’ve been hacked.
If a bot is scanning your site for vulnerabilities that generate a lot of 404 errors, iThemes Security will lock the IP after the limit you set (default 5 minutes and 20 errors).
Strong Password Enforcement
Set which level of users on your site (admins, editors, users, etc.) need to have strong passwords. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress.
Locking out bad users
Keep bad users away from your site if they have too many failed login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors, or if they’re on a bot blacklist.
Stay away mode
Can’t make changes to your website 24 hours a day? Block WordPress so that the WordPress dashboard is inaccessible for a specific period of time, so that others can’t sneak in and try to make changes.
Hide login and administration
Change the default URL of the WordPress login area so that attackers won’t know where to look. This feature can also help customers remember their login links.
Schedule a database backup and have it sent to you via email. Or you can use our WordPress backup plugin to step up your backup game. Make a full backup and send it to an offsite storage destination.
Get email notifications when someone gets locked out after too many failed login attempts, or when files on your site are changed.
