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.
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.

I can now sleep better!!
I had numerous attacks on one of my sites, thousands of strange coded page requests and efforts to break in. (It looked like China and Ukraine hackers have joined forces to hack into this lousy blog). I have installed the plugin and the page requests and strange activity decreased totally.…

Finally a Security Plugin that doesn’t bloat and works!
After trialling all sorts of security plugins I got fed up of all the extra bloat and bulk that was added to the database, Shield does a very good job of working silently in the background without annoying notifications and emails.
