Quality WP security info. Easy to understand fully and quickly because of the the graphics. Not another loooong techno-babble article referencing things I never understood to begin with. I have used a few of the security plugins recommended, they are solid choices – well maintained, stable, and *non-destructive.
BulletProof Security is excellent, large amount of features – detailed, but informative and user-friendly. The support is also excellent. There was a small conflict with JetPack at the time. I must have JetPack and XML-RPC access to post from mobile apps, so I stopped using it. Plus I have hundreds of plugins on my other MultiSite. Still, I highly recommend it. You can learn a huge amount about WP and security from the plugin.
One of my many total-site-decimations was due to a security plugin…
*Years ago, I lost super admin access from a complicated security plugin. I didn’t even know what setting caused that to happen or the method used. My web host tech support couldn’t hack it, poor plugin support. I had to export what I could, manually move media – I lost a lot of content, and had duplicate the site or sites manually on a new WP install. (I couldn’t install plugins.)
