Great! Very good.

Helpful tool Easy to use; exactly what I was looking for. Recommendation!


Security Ninja Works and the Price is Right We have been using the full version of Security Ninja on our site http://sarniabuyandsell.com for about a month and have already noticed a difference. Security Ninja was at our price point and found it had more to offer then we had expected. We even had to dial it back a bit so are other software could work properly, we didn't mind that as it was flexible and had no problem navigating the software. We have found that for the price it has a bigger bang then other software we were looking at.

Very helpful Pointed the way to fix multiple security vulnerabilities.

Special features SN is maybe not the most downloaded security plugin on Wordpress, but it has some nifty features: so, if you have just a local business, you can eliminate all countries that will actually not do business with you. This takes a great part on being 'safe'. NS also goes a little bit deeper in protecting your core WP code. For most part, it takes you by hand doing the changes, or it fixes itself where it’s possible. Ideal for the developers who have little understanding of the core wp-files. We install it directly after a new WP installation for our clients. Support is not ’super-fast’, but sure, you get your answers. Recommended!

Works well Not had an issue since installing

Hi, I bought Security Ninja and Login Ninja. I must say they’re great and my website is much more secure now. I had quite a lot of security issues on my website, but they’re all fixed now thanks to the plugin. It is also very easy to use.
By the way the support from Web Factory is prompt and their approach is professional. Five stars.


Great reporting tool So quickly, it saved me a lot of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the license valid for?

Normally licenses are for one year. However, under this special offer, your license is valid forever.

How many sites is my license good for?

The 3-site license can be used on up to 3 sites at a time. The "unlimited" license can be used on an unlimited number of sites.

Can I resell my license?

No, you cannot resell or rent your license. You can only use it for your sites or the clients you manage.

No renting or sharing your license to other agencies, this will result in the license being revoked.

Can I hide the license key?

Yes, you can hide your license key for your customers. Use the dashboard page to administer all your sites. You can hide your license key and also disable individual sites.

Do you provide support?

Yes, we do - Contact us anytime and we will be happy to help.

Do you offer refunds?

If you are not 100% satisfied with our plugin, let us know within 30 days of your order and we’ll issue a full refund. After 30 days, refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Does it work with WordPress Multisite?

Yes, Security Ninja works with WordPress Multisite. Each site uses a different license. You can either administer centrally all licenses as a global administrator or you can delegate to each site administrator.

Staging and development sites

Localhost, staging and development environments won’t get counted toward the license’s maximum allowed sites if its domain name is clearly a dev or staging site.

TLDs that are considered as dev or staging:

.dev, .dev.cc, .test, .local, .staging, .example, .invalid, .myftpupload.com (GoDaddy), .cloudwaysapps.com (Cloudways), .wpsandbox.pro (WPSandbox), .ngrok.io (tunneling)

Do you have documentation?

We have online documentation that we are regularly improving on.

We also offer documentation in the form of a help beacon right inside the plugin where you can search the knowledge base and you can contact support if you get stuck.

What are the plans for Security Ninja?

We have a public roadmap where we add new features suggested by our customers.

Check out all the details and vote for your favorite features on our Trello board.

We are also working on new features that we will tell you all about when we are ready 😉
