Protect against brute-force attacks and keep bots at bay. All-In-One Security takes WordPress’ default login security features to a whole new level.

  • Supports best practice: All-In-One Security detects if an account has the default ‘admin’ username or if a user has identical login and display names, prompting the user to change this in support of better security practices.
  • Hide login page from bots: Configure a custom URL for the WordPress ‘Admin’ login page, making it harder for bots to find.
  • Change default wp_ prefix to a value of your choice: Hackers use automated code to attack websites like yours. Make life harder for them and protect your site with this simple but effective AIOS security feature.

  • Reporting: All-In-One Security provides a wealth of information about website users. View activity by username, IP address, login and logout dates and times. See a list of users currently logged in, and a list of all failed login attempts.
  • Force logouts: Ensure users don’t stay logged in indefinitely. With All-In-One Security you can force logouts for all users after a configurable amount of time.
  • Robot verification: For additional security and to prevent spam registrations, implement Google reCAPTCHA, plain maths CAPTCHA or a honeypot to registration pages, or enable manual approval of user accounts instead.
  • Stops user enumeration: Prevent external users and bots from fetching user information via author permalink.
  • Two-factor authentication: All-In-One Security TFA supports Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, Authy and many more.
  • Password strength tool: Calculates how long it would take for your password to be cracked in the event of a brute force attack.
  • General visitor lockout Put your site into “maintenance mode” and lock down the front-end to all visitors. This can be useful while doing back end tasks, like performing site upgrades or investigating security threats.


A Web Application Firewall (WAF) is your website’s first line of defence, protecting your site by monitoring traffic and blocking malicious requests.
Progressively activate firewall settings ranging from basic, intermediate and advanced.

  • 6G blacklist: All-In-One Security incorporates ‘6G Blacklist’ firewall rules, protecting your site against a known list of malicious URL requests, bots, spam referrers and other attacks (courtesy of Perishable Press).
  • Protect against fake Google bots: Bots presenting as Google crawlers can steal your content and litter your webpage with comment spam. Protect against it with the All-In-One Security Web Application Firewall.
  • Blacklist functionality: Ban users by IP address, IP address range or by specifying user agents.
  • Prevent DDOS attacks: Prevent malicious users from performing DDOS attacks through a known vulnerability in WordPress XML-RPC pingback functionality.

  • Comment SPAM prevention : Webpages littered with spam comments damage your brand, effect the user experience and impact SEO.
    All-In-One Security stops SPAM at the source by preventing comments that originate from other domains. AIOS automatically and permanently blocks spammers’ IP addresses. Site owners can use reCAPTCHA to reduce comment spam and block malicious users with just one click.
  • iFrame protection: Preventing other websites from reproducing your content via an ‘iFrame’ is an useful security feature that protects your intellectual property and your website visitors.
  • Copywriting protection: Stop users from stealing your content by disabling the right-click, select and copy text function.

How is All-In-One Security (AIOS) supported?

Customers of ‘Free’ AIOS can get support from this very webpage. Select ‘Support’ from the tabs above and post a topic. We aim to respond to all support requests within 24 hours during the working week.

Is All-In-One Security compatible with other plugins?

Yes. AIOS works smoothly with most popular WordPress plugins.

Is All-in-One-Security regularly updated?

Yes. WordPress Security is something that evolves over time. We update AIOS with new security features (and fixes if required) on a regular basis so you can be assured that your site will keep benefitting from new security protection techniques for as long as you need them.

Will All-In-One Security slow down my website?


Should I install All-In-One Security for free or should I purchase AIOS Premium?

The decision is yours to make. ‘Free’ AIOS incorporates a web application firewall, comprehensive login security tools including two-factor authentication and all the latest recommended WordPress security practices and techniques.
But if your WordPress site is a business website, if it showcases what you do, or who you are, we generally recommend AIOS Premium. Prices start from as little as $70 for the year.

What are the additional features of All-In-One Security Premium?

AIOS Premium scans your WordPress website for malware whilst aso monitoring your site’s response time and uptime, notifying you of any issues within 24 hours, AIOS Premium customers also benefit from hands-on ticketed support via email (rather than via WP Support forums).
Additional security tools include Country Blocking, Smart 404 Error Blocking and Advanced Two Factor Authentication.
More information is available from our All-In-One Security website

How do I get started with All-In-One Security Premium?

In the web shop, purchase your preferred subscription. After completing the purchase, you will be emailed a link to download the plugin. You can also access the link through your “My Account” page.
After downloading the zip file, install and activate the plugin through WP Admin->Plugins->Add New->Upload Plugin.
The premium extends the free version. Therefore you should keep the free version installed and active. You will also be prompted to enter your AIOS username and password to connect your site to licenses. This will allow the plugin to receive updates.

Do I need to have the free version before downloading Premium?

Yes, you need to have the free version of the plugin installed and activated before installing Premium. Premium plugin is an add-on that requires the free version to be present.

Does All-In-One Security work with multi-site network installations?

Yes, AIOS Premium is compatible with WordPress multisites. For multisite networks, the protection will apply to the network as a whole, and the dashboard and options will be available on the main site of the WordPress multisite.

Can a WordPress security plugin stop all attacks on my site?

There is no 100% guarantee that a security plugin will be able to protect against all attacks, as there is always the possibility of unknown WordPress vulnerabilities or other unexpected factors, and attackers are always seeking to develop new ways around protections. However, All-In-One Security gives good protection against known attack methods, and is under continuous development to monitor and improve protections.

Does All-In-One Security work on all servers and hosts?

AIOS should be compatible with most hosts, unless the host has specifically restricted the use of security plugins. Similarly, certain features may not work on some servers, especially Windows/IIS platforms. Features that use the ‘.htaccess’ file will not apply on a Windows IIS server or NGINX server (but development is ongoing to port those protections to all servers).

Can I cover my subdomains and test sites with a licence for AIOS Premium?

Development and test sites require their own licence if updates to the plugin are needed.
However, these sites can be disconnected from the licence when they have served their purpose. You can disconnect the licence via the site’s WP Admin->Plugins page, and it will be available to be reassigned to a different site.

A great tool with many features. Definitely makes the site safe and the support is fast and competently helpful. Ein großartiges Werkzeug mit vielen Features. Macht die Seite definitiv sicher und der Support ist schnell und kompetent hilfreich.
11 november 2022
I've tried to piecemeal security objectives and improve posture before I found All In One WP Security and Firewall, but I did not have warm fuzzies about security on my sites. The toolset available with AIO is well organized and prepared for ease of deployment and documented well so it can be implemented confidently. Every WP site should have it installed and enabled to full capacity. The confidence meters help you understand your modular level of security and are great visuals of where you stand to improve. I don't think anything is 100%, but this is enough to cause hackers to "move on" to the next site and maybe leave you alone. Install this.
