WP Cerber meets WordPress Coding Standards and Guidelines and doesn’t use code tricks any kind. That allows using the plugin in any hosting environment that meets WordPress requirements. Despite that, a list of compatible and incompatible plugins has been created.

Contact Form 7 Compatible, you have to add a namespace exception contact-form-7 or enable REST API on the Hardening tab (uncheck Block access to the WordPress REST API)

Jetpack Compatible, you have to enable XML-RPC on the Hardening tab (uncheck Disable XML-RPC) and add a namespace exception jetpack in Disable REST API section if you’ve disabled REST API on the Hardening tab (Block access to the WordPress REST API)
Divi theme by Elegant Themes In the Main Settings of WP Cerber the Display 404 page setting must be set to “Display simple 404 page”
bbPress Compatible
WP Multisite mode Compatible by design, all Cerber settings are global for all sites in the network
Ultimate Member Not compatible. The Ultimate Member plugin breaks the process of user authentication.

Incompatible plugins

The following plugins can cause an issue or be the cause of a plugin conflict: Ultimate Member, WPBruiser {no- Captcha anti-Spam}, Plugin Organizer, WP-SpamShield, Limit Login Attempts Reloaded. If you use any of these plugins and come across any issue or plugin conflict, you have to decide to either deinstall the WP Cerber plugin or one of these plugins. The WP Cerber plugin won’t be updated to fix any issue or conflict related to the incompatible plugins.
