    Do you use WordPress Security Plugin?

    Do you use WordPress Security Plugin?

    If so, which plugin or plugins do you use to enhance your WordPress sites? What is your experience on using these plugins. Are they really useful in also really stopping the hacking of websites as they say?

    Thanks!

    I have never used security plugin for wordpress as i never thought that wordpress can be so insecure that it would need this sort of plugins to enhance its security. Any ways i will definitely keep an eye on this and will see what additional features these software's or plugins can offer to make wordpress blog more secure and safe from hackers which keep on looking for vulnerabilities all the time by making hacking attempts.

    WordPress is pretty secure by default, but it never hurts to add another layer of protection. But first of all, you want to be certain that your hosting service is secure enough! If it's not, switch over to a different one. Hostgator is a really great webhoster with powerful security. Now for WordPress security plug-ins, I use Better WP Security. It gives you a list of possible security breaches and will fix them for you upon your command. There's a built-in blacklisting system and firewall for spammers or possible hackers.

    I don't currently, but I would perhaps if the site got large enough. The reason I avoid using them now is I don't want to slow down the site, and I am concerned about the plugins interfering with my customization's to the theme.

    I have used User Activity Log Pro security WordPress plugin which is a powerful and strong monitor system to track your users and team activities.
    It helps you about WordPress core updates, Posts & Pages updates, User activities, etc. which are done in admin side for any WordPress powered website.

    Mostly people use Wordfence - the #1 security plugin in wordpress directory. Apart from that I usually prefer Loginizer, it helps to limit the login attempts.

    The well known security plugins are All in one WP security and Wordfence security. I am using all in one WP security for my website. It is really a good security plugin for WordPress. It concerns all aspects of website security, such as use account, user login, database security, filesystem security, firewall,blacklist manager, spam prevention and scanner. I highly recommend you to install All in one WP security.
