Shield Security: Protection with Smarter Automation

Version: 12.0.13

Overall Rating
WordPress Rating

The highest rated 5* Security Plugin for WordPress Shield – highest average 5* rating for any WordPress security plugin (2019/05). See what people are saying here. It’s 2020 – Don’t settle for just another security plugin. Get smarter security. You don’t need another 100 email notifications. You need a security plugin that does all the heavy lifting for you, and only alerts you when you need to know. And when you get an alert, you actually have steps to take, not just the position of “I have no clue what to do!” Security for WordPress doesn’t have to be hard There’s no reason for security to be so darn complicated. It doesn’t have to be this way any longer. Shield is the easiest security plugin to setup – you simply activate it. And you can gradually dig deeper, as you’re ready. Trust: Shield Does Exactly What It Says It Will Do You’ve probably been let down in the past, but Shield is the WordPress Security solution that does what it says it’ll do – Protect Your Site. Constant notifications are not okay. You’re already busy! Receiving constant alerts from your security plugins isn’t “security”. It’s just noise. By the time you receive a notification and respond to it, it’s already too late. Instead, Shield Security does it what it needs...

The plugin ran into some errors.

😞

Sorry, pal! The plugin couldn’t pass all our tests. No hard feelings, right?
