What people are saying about WP Cerber

WP Cerber Security is proven to be one of the most effective security solutions for WordPress. Check out how our five-stars rated plugin protects more than 200000 websites around the world.

This has to be by far one of the best security plugins for WordPress. A simple and easy to use system to block users trying to gain access to your site. Many other security plugins have too many options and require too much configuration which end up breaking things. As soon as we activated this plugin it stated working. I love the simplicity of this plugin and if you are configuring your sites properly then you dont need all the features which are in plugins like Wordfence so I would highly recommend this for any developers.

My company has been configuring this plugin on all our client sites for the past 5 months, and it’s been a real gem in our security toolbox. Today, I had a personal site mustering through a sudden brute-force attack, which I was able to stop immediately in its tracks by creating a custom login URL via this plugin.

This plugin is really good – it has a lot of features that all of the “big dogs” of WordPress security offer – and it is easier to set up and use! The free version is much better than the other guys free plugins and much easier to set up. The recommended settings make it super quick to secure your WordPress site and its a lot better once you go through the settings with a fine tooth comb to really dial it all in. I think this is one of the best security plugins that i have tried.

We operate several e-commerce and news websites on WordPress and Cerber Security keeps us from having security issues. We are a lean team, so we don’t have a lot resources we can throw at security. We have to be really judicious about the tools we use and are really happy to have found Cerber Security.

I researched many security solutions for wordpress, some big and fancy, some look fantastic but unknown and I chose one that was simple to use and has proven, day after day to be my line of defence. WP Cerber Security does its job well, produces reports and defends your site (lots of hard work) from malicious software’s and the general sniffer on the web. (full of them).

After using the tools I now see how often dubious persons want to log on to my website in the administration. Last night it was destined within three hours more than 20 attempts. Beautiful is here that one sees the name of the user with which he wants to login. I gladly send my best regards from Germany, keep it up.

WP Cerber is THE best, most comprehensive plugin for site security and protection I have ever used. As a long-time WordPress user, I’ve used several others and nothing even comes close to matching Cerber in effectiveness. My site experiences brute force attacks on a daily basis, all deflected by this plugin.


It doesn’t even consume much resources, free of charge, so many useful functions, already blocked hundreds of unauthorized requested. Must have plugin in any wordpress site. I highly recommend this to every single wordpress webmaster. Don’t bother to read any rate under 5> just go ahead and install and see it yourself. I guarantee satisfaction is certain.


This is the best plugin I have used to mitigate bruteforce attacks.
It returns 403 error codes for admin login failures, xmlrpc login failures and 404 code for non used wp-login. This is exactly what is needed to detect and block attacking IPs when used in conjunction with the server application fail2ban and configserver firewall.
For those without fail2ban and cfs the plugin has a web application firewall to block attacking IPs for each wp installation separately.
After installing this plugin two other plugins became redundant…
– Disable XMLRPC (I only used this because xmlrpc was vulnerable to bruteforce attack)
– WPS Hide login (wp-cerber also does this)


I just can’t say enough good things about this plug in, I was being hit heavy with brute force attacks and while I have other security in place it was bogging down my site. The support was fast, efficient and thorough, just an awesome security plugin and author.
What makes this plugin really cool for those like me is the being to control your black and white list. It compliment’s Sucuri Security plugin beautifully. I also have Simple Security Firewall, the 3 work in perfect concert.


Meets all my needs: custom login URL, blocking wp-login.php and ?author=n, prohibited usernames, login/logout/attempts/blocking informative log, black and white lists. It’s not overwhelmed with a lot of obscure option checkboxes, but allows to customize all you need. It just has as many settings as it gets, no more no less. All features are well thought out. All my bots are now blocked immediately without numerous attempts. Attacks even became less frequent since I installed WP Cerber, not sure why :). I replaced 3 other plugins with this one. It’s easily configurable and works just well for me.


Whenever you try to build a serious website for say e-commerce, you’re soon spending money so to have plugins as good as this to protect your site for free is a major bonus. Love this plugin and it does exactly what you need it to do. Thank you, Gioni, very much appreciated.


This is the best login attempt plugin out there. It has many features that only premium plugins have. It is very flexible and easy to use. There is virtually nothing to configure out of the box, you can just enable it and you’re going….but if you do want to get into the fine details, there are many options and configurations that allow you to get it working just like you want it to. Thank you for providing this to the community!
