A super simple plugin that when installed helps prevent Brute Force Attacks, Direct Admin Attacks, and blocks "Bad Bots".

This plugin is super simple to use. We like to call it a "Install and Forget" plugin. Once installed Harden WP does not add clutter to your WordPress admin area and is programmed to harden your WordPress Install following the recommendations straight from WordPress.org. You can see the WordPress hardening article by visiting http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress.

Below is a list of features that Harden WP currently has:

  1. Bad Bot Blocks - We try to keep the list of "Bad Bots" up to date.
  2. Direct wp-login.php / wp-admin Blocks - This is a commonly known weakness and seems to be the greatest risk
  3. Admin URL Change - Changes your login url to http://yoursite.com/admin. - This is schedule to be utomated with option to be changed by users in next version.

Harden WP is schedule to be updated the 3rd of each month with emergency updates whenever needed. If there is any feature that you would like to see in the plugin feel free to send a email to support@wpkeeper.com.
