Works great with one CSP issue

I've used this to implement http security headers on my WordPress site. Very easy to use and get good scores on evaluation sites. Content Security Policy seems to be an emerging technique to improve security. Its easy to implement using this plugin. Only one problem I've noticed: When I input data in the box for base-uri: and then check with Google CSP Evaluator it shoes all of the CSP values except for base-uri where it shows "base-uri;" regards of what's entered in the plugin. Base-uri doesn't fall back to the default-src directive so this shows up as an issue. Still deserves 5 stars for its ease of use.

Good Job

I really like this plugin. I tried others for CSP and I chose this over the others for its ease of use. CSP is complicated enough. By using this plugin it is easier to implement a content security policy and security headers on WordPress. I highly recommend this plugin. Thanks for taking the time to make this plugin.

Perfect

Perfect plugin for the job it needs to do. The developer is great as well!

Perfectly pitched

Really useful plugin for helping with these headers. In addition to https://securityheaders.io also check out your site using https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ for additional feedback. Many thanks.

Facilitating Content Security Policy, X-XSS-Protection, HSTS etc.

I had started writing code in my header and was trying various values for the many directives, after breaking the pages. I decided to look at plugins. The issue was how to speed up the process. This plugin seemed to offer what I needed. In conjunction with the https://securityheaders.io site, I soon attained an 'A' rating. Thank you Conrad for a very useful plugin. This is a great start and I hope you will keep up with the new levels of CSP.
