iThemes Security 8.0
Check out the new features:
- Real-Time Security Activity Dashboard
The dynamic WordPress security dashboard monitors all security-related events on your website 24/7 – all in one place. It is now also the default view of the security plugin, where you can see all security activity at a glance on beautiful security card. This includes site scans, user security profile(s) (pro only), (active) lockouts, bans overview, brute force attacks, trusted devices, database backups, and more.
- Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
iThemes Security now features 2FA to secure all your WordPress logins. The plugin provides the following three authentication methods: Mobile app, email, and backup codes.
- Have I Been Pwned Integration
The new Have I Been Pwned integration checks whether passwords have been compromised in data breaches and – if so – they cannot be used on your website.
In addition, they have also announced a new setup and onboarding experience that allows you to secure your WordPress site in less than 10 minutes. With new security site templates you can select the type of your site to apply the best security settings with ease.
Finally, they redesigned and simplified the plugin settings, improved accessibility, and removed a few settings that are outdated in today’s world. This includes 404 detection, away mode, change content directory, and more.
