Abysmal support, plugin didn't install correctly

By helen_wpd on May 11, 2023

Absolutely rubbish support, couldn't even help me with a relatively simple set up issue. Don't even bother downloading this plugin!

Do not engage with these folks

By gpotter on May 4, 2023

This is simply my experience.

  1. Their backups are not compatible with Bluehost -trust me we tried for weeks.
  2. They deleted all my backups which they stated they could not recover which is a shining example of negligence.
  3. In support tickets they tried to sell stuff one either doesn't need or is already included.
  4. I've found average response times to be about 20 Hours to reply to my requests apart from the auto-respond email. That's ok but I need better especially when it comes to security.

Doesn't protect your site at all.

The free version does not do what is advertised. Didn't protect my site from malware and multiple sites (using this plugin) have been hacked.

There's much better alternatives to use.

Great Free & Pro Version

By jollygreen on December 28, 2022

This is a great plugin for securing and monitoring your WordPress website. I have the free version installed on around 20 sites and the Pro Firewall through custom Name Servers on a handful of other sites (Pro costs around $199/year per site at the time of this review). I most often use the default version of the plugin for monitoring and logging with my own custom .htaccess rules and .htaccess firewall for hardening.

NOTE: Be careful when setting up functionality and hardening your settings through the plugin. Most of the 1* reviews are from people breaking their sites and getting themselves locked out by not understanding what the plugin settings do/affect and how to properly use the plugin's settings. When in doubt, don't enable every single security setting and just use the bare minimum until you back test your own site.

The firewall is plain dumb

By Alex Spataru (alexandrubr) on December 3, 2022

I'm trying to upload a new website for a client of mine and I keep getting blocked by the firewall, even tho' I'm the administrator of the website. I get it, you want to make the website as secure as possible, but c'mon, blocking the administrator from accessing even the media upload (for SVGs) it is too much.

Excellent plugin!!

By snippet24 on November 13, 2022

IMHO is better than other security plugins out there and has prevention measures / hardening and post hacking measures that are great :) I only hope is not abandoned Regards

Excellent work, especially useful.

By jreygarcia1960 on October 19, 2022

Sucuri keeps my wordpress out of danger, notifying me at all times of any incident. When I rest, he continues to work and when we meet again, he greets me every morning telling me that my website is clean. An exceptionally good plugin, especially useful, honest, and free. You cannot ask for more. Thank you very much Sucuri!

Regular updates are key. The world has a lot of nasties out there. Keeps my charity sites running. Why do people hack charities? Thanks Sucuri, you're a part of keeping our impoverished kids in school. First plugin I install on a new site.

Speed and Best security

By akbar4774480 on August 31, 2022

Thanks to the developers. The site works very fast. It can be seen that after installation, the speed has noticeably improved. Very easy to set up. When logging in to wp-admin prohibits logging in. If you need real protection and speed then this is the one
