WP Shield Security – Release 6.6

Shield Security Pro Logo

Shield Security v6.6 for WordPress released 19th March, 2018.

This release for Shield Security sees 2 massive additions, as well as some overall improvements and a few bug fixes

Password Policies For All WordPress Users

Making sure your site is as secure as it can be is a huge undertaking. And while you can do many things, WordPress still doesn’t allow you to enforce strong passwords.

We’re bringing Enterprise-grade password policies to all your Pro WordPress sites.

There are many options/policies you can set, and the full details of this new feature are laid out here.

Keyless Activation for Pro – no more license keys

One of the greatest headaches for WordPress site admins is the storage and management of license keys. There’s no getting around them, they’re everywhere.

Well they’re not here anymore. We’ve completely done away with the need to manage license keys, and you don’t need them to activate Shield Pro.

All you need to do now is add your site URLs to your Keyless Activation control panel, and you’re good to go.

It’s really very easy.

Last Scan Run Times

We’ve added a simple indicator for each of the Hack Guard scans to tell you when the last time the scan was run.

These can be found in the options areas of each of the individual scans.

Improvements and Bug Fixes

As with each release, v6.6 also sees some bug fixes and improvements. Most notable is the streamlined AJAX implementation.

AJAX can be a bit of a pain to put in-place and is prone to breakage. But it makes for a smooth user experience, and so this improvement will help use ajax just a bit more throughout and be even more reliable.

Best Plugin

I am searching like this plugin for last 2 days. Finally I found this. This plugin really offers very good features in free plan also. It proves they are customer concerned. I will soon upgrade to premium once I get enough money.

All Great Since Installed

I had about 5 of my websites hacked so after restoring them I installed Shield and everything’s been secure since. All of the features are amazing considering this is a free plugin!

    Hi there,

    These are some excellent improvements!

    I went to look at the pricing for Shield Pro, clicked through the $1 plugin banners… and found out it’s $12 per site. Is it no longer $1?

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for the comment and sorry for the confusion. It’s the equivalent of $1/site/month – which is $12/year.
      We wouldn’t be even close to sustainability for $1/year, unfortunately.

      Thanks!
      Paul.

    Ohhh right, that makes sense.
    I did think $1 was quite low, haha!
