I don't see any content in the sales material for the new iThemes Security plugin that tells me that it will be any more useful, or less difficult (!) than the BPS Security plugin that I have activited on all my sites.

Please give me a reason to make the switch...

Hello Karentiede,

Welcome to the iThemes Community Forums!

iThemes Security has a completely redone code base focusing on efficiency and UI changes. As far as less difficult there have been many changes to address bugs that BWPS contained. Better WP Security will not be maintained or receive any more development.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hello iThemes,

I'm sorry to post it here but it seems you're not informed of the issue everyone is complaining about on this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cannot-log-in-to-wp-admin-4

Thanks by advance for your help.

Best regards,

I can't login to one of my sites also.   Need to recover it.

It would be with paying for the security product if it would recognize a backup is in progress and not spam me file update warnings.   Will this be solved with using your backup tool?
