Beoordelingen

I love my plugin

I can say it has made me feel safer when hosting sites. I get alerted before a hack takes place as I have dealt with hacked sites for far too long. I haven’t dealt with a hacked site running my plugin. Plugin vulnerabilities are the easiest way for a hacker to get into your site/server.

Great stuff

Instantly works after activation, I didn’t have to do anything else to set it up. Apparently my Visual Composer was vulnerable, wouldn’t have found out otherwise.
