Comment on Beware New WordPress Security Theat: The WordPress Misinformation Virus by Keith Davis.

Hi Paul and thanks for putting together an article that makes people think.

I’m not an expert on WordPress security and that’s why I use your plugin and various other measures to help secure / protect my sites.

If I could I’d whitelist my IP but I don’t have a dedicated IP – guess I should look into fixing that.

I’ve thought a lot about going with managed hosting for protection and backups and I’m still looking at that approach.

Get The Shield! Our WordPress Security Firewall Goes Pro
Hi Paul
I’ve always loved the Simple Firewall and recommend it to all my WordPress user friends.

Sounds as though you guys are going head to head with WordFence, Sucuri and iThemes Security… is that right?

My problem is that I don’t use iControlWP so I may have to go the “What if you don’t want to use iControlWP? Contact us and share your case with us.” route.

I’ll follow the comments to see how things progress.

Sorry for second question Paul, but can you try this out on a local install say using XAMPP?


How To Add 2-Factor Authentication Login To Your WordPress Sites
Hi Paul
I use the WordPress Simple Firewall plugin and I’m thinking of activating this feature.

I don’t have a dedicated IP address so I’m wondering if this will cause me problems each time I log in or will I simply have to use the email method…

“This email will contain a verification link that you must click in order to verify the IP address and your username.”
