The most comprehensive plugin for controlling access to the WordPress REST API!
Tested up to6.3.1
One of the must have plugins.

I always start my WordPress installations with this plugin (among a few other ones).
A must have on all sites.
Still works on WP 6.2

The plugin still works for me on WordPress 6.2. It's great to have the option to allow API access where I need it and block everything else.
Just what I was looking for

Allows locking the WP API behind auth and selectively allowing it where needed. Despite the lack of plugin updates, the author does have an active github repo so don't let that put you off.

Blocking the REST API entirely breaks plugins that require this functionality, so being able to selectively enable routes is perfect.
I recommend this plugin to everyone who uses Independent Analytics to secure their site while still enabling analytics to be recorded.
Sorry to end this

It has not been tested with current Wordpress 6.1 and it seems to be compatible up to 5.8.6. Last update that we had was over 1 year ago.
This was/is a very good plugin with the options, and it could still work now, but we can not verify compliance.
Broke my site - but seems good idea

I installed this but following install I couldn't view any webpages.
The main page give exception
Notice: Trying to get property 'name' of non-object in /home/customer/www/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-includes/rest-api/endpoints/class-wp-rest-posts-controller.php on line 60
I prompted renamed plugin folder using FTP in the folder wp-contentpluginsdisable-json-api.disable so I could login then deleted it
Good idea but didn't work for my site
Great work. Easy to use.
