How will you know it works?
Well, we have a dedicated security scanner that will give you a clear security grade and report for your website. This way, you’ll know exactly what to fix.

WordPress Features

Security Audit
SecuPress is the only plugin with a full scanner able to fix the issues for you. And when it requires a decision from you, it will ask you before proceeding. With this feature, you can check 35 security points in 5 minutes and let us take care of the rest.

Once done, you get a security grade that gives you a clear idea of what your security level is. You can export this analysis in PDF format to share with others (clients or colleagues) (1).

Users & Login
This feature is the easiest way to make sure your users’ data is protected and to keep their accounts from being compromised. With this feature you can limit the number of bad login attempts, ban non-existing usernames login attempts and set a non-login time slot. SecuPress also makes sure you can avoid double logins and control your sessions.

SecuPress also adds a 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) because it’s almost a mandatory feature when it comes to WordPress security!

The plugin also gives you greater user and password control as you can set:

  • Password lifetimes for your users.
  • Enforce strong password use.
  • Forbid the use of vague usernames like www or admin.

Tired of bots finding your WordPress login page? Finally, don’t let bots find your login page, just move it with the famous Move Login plugin, now included in SecuPress.

Plugins and Themes
SecuPress helps you detect themes and plugins that are vulnerable or that have been tampered with to include malicious code. If you install one of these, your security module will send out an email alert and give you a warning in WordPress.

SecuPress takes security further by limiting plugin activation, deactivation, installation and removal in your production (live) website. Plugin and theme uploads via .zip files will be on lockdown as well to block off this easy hacking route.

WordPress Core
SecuPress reinforces the WordPress Core to keep it safe. The security plugin optimizes what’s under the hood to secure the config file by setting the proper parameters.

Sensitive Data
SecuPress secures content in many ways:

  • The plugin secures WordPress Endpoints and APIs by blocking bad requests for XML-RPC or REST API.
  • It blocks bad bots with its Robots Blackhole feature.
  • It provides an anti-hotlink feature to preserve your bandwidth.
  • The plugin packs 7 anti-disclose security modules to make sure no precious information is available to hackers in your PHP or WordPress itself.
  • Profile and SecuPress settings pages are password protected to keep sensitive information away from prying eyes.


  • SecuPress is one of the most efficient WordPress bouncer you’ll ever see!
  • The plugin blocks malicious incoming requests.
  • It blocks bad User Agents (no bad crawlers allowed).
  • Bad requests methods also get the boot in a single click.
  • Les URL sont conservées dans la vérification : pas de mauvais contenus d’URL.
  • SQL injection scanners are kept out as well.
  • Brute force attempts are stopped in their tracks.
  • GeoIP Blocking by country gives you more control over your traffic.

Malware Scan
SecuPress has a unique malware scan developed by our security experts. It hunts down bad files and provides you with an easy step-by-step report that lets you take action. It looks into:

  • Bad files in your FTP.
  • Your uploads folder for dangerous files.
  • Potential phishing attempts via index.php loads.

We know firsthand how painful it is to pick up the pieces after an attack damages your WordPress. SecuPress preserves your data to help you avoid lost content or settings if your website comes under attack. The plugin backs up your database and files and lets you download them to guarantee you peace of mind.

Anti Spam
Did you know that 60% of the traffic on the Internet is generated by bots? Most of them happen to be spam bots. We developed our own anti-spam system that works quietly in the background. Just activate it and enjoy a spam free experience.

Alerts are an essential tool when your website is under attack. When something important happens on your website, SecuPress will send you an alert via email. We’re working on alerts via SMS, Slack & Twitter as well.

Vous recevez aussi un rapport quotidien qui fournit un résumé des attaques tentées et de toutes les activités bloquées par SecuPress.

Scheduled Security Tasks
SecuPress can run 3 separate scheduled tasks for you. It’s like having a security patrol on your WordPress.

Scheduled Scanner: SecuPress scans your website to detect any issues. After the scan is complete, you get a report in your inbox outlining any actions you have to take to protect your website.
Scheduled Backup: our team knows that everyone at one time or another forgets to back things up. We made it an automatic task to help ensure you always can recover from an attack with your content safe.
Scheduled Malware Scan: this security feature scans your website at regular intervals to hunt down any malware that may have gotten into your WordPress.

SecuPress will keep a log of important security activities and 404 pages triggered by users, bots or even Chuck Norris. This lets you keep an eye on what’s going on in your WordPress at any time. You can also control banned IPs from this option.

(1) Available in the Pro Version.

La réponse est non. SecuPress n’est pas compatible avec d’autres extensions de sécurité.

Les règles de sécurité pourraient être en conflit si 2 extensions étaient installées. Ceci peut causer des erreurs et ce n’est pas recommandé.

La garantie d'un site sans souci. J'ai plus de vingt sites qui l'utilise et c'est très rassurant. Merci Julio 🙂

I've been using SecuPress for the past year and even became a Pro subscriber for the additional features. First impressions are great, I loved the user interface, simplicity, ease of use, awesome! But what I hate is the fact that I'm not sure how much can I trust this plugin. I'm using Wordfence for work websites. What I love about Wordfence is that these guys are on the top of their game, busy bees in a bee hive. Often there's something new, a new update, the plugin is being looked after and it gives me a good feeling of security. If things go pear shape, these guys will help me out. Unfortunately I don't get the same vibes with SecuPress. The plugin seems abandoned. There hasn't been a single update in months. There's been lots happening with WP development lately, we've got WP 5.6+ that came with a few changes to the security, yet the last update of SecuPress was over 7 months ago. It seems to be more of a school project rather than something to be taken seriously. Website security is a big deal. I don't think I get that with SecuPress. Moving onto a different security plugin for now. Happy to give it another try if anything will change.
