Which security plugins to use - Claire Walker - 12-18-2013 02:47 AM

I have never had any problems with my Wordpress installation, but I guess it might not hurt to do a little extra. Does any one of you have any recomendations?

You can use this plugin: Better WP Security

I usually dont use security plugins but if I do I use Total Security and WordFence Security.

I alsu use UdraftPlus for backups to Google Drive.

On all my sites I only use 2 plugins for security and so far they have done quite well for me. I use Wordfence and Limit Login Attempts. On a few of my sites Limit Login gets a pretty good workout. It will lock someone out after so many attempts, then they have to wait a certain amount of time before they are allowed to log back in.

I got so sick and tired of Wordfence too often blovked MY access to my own site. So I deleted it! Im using Sucuri now.

I also use Wordfence and Limit Login Attempts and for now I am satisfied. But keep them up to date, it's really important.

I have been using All In One WP Security some months now and so far Im very happy! I did try Wordfence and Sucuri before. Wordfence is good but sometimes too good as I also tried being locked out from my own site! Sucuri worked fine.

I recently found All In One Security and I love it! It's pretty easy to use and it seems to work :-)
