Install Bad Bots and be super annoyed because the plugin wants to install an addition. No matter where you look in wp/admin. No, it’s not worth it. Let them bad bots amuse themselves on your site.

Apensa de aparentar uma boa ferramenta e ter dado um trabalho para equipe de desenvolvimento criar, ao instalar a mesma ela não me passou muita confiança sobre seu funcionamento e viabilidade, nem se realizava o que prometia.

I had not realized it was bots killing my websites until I tried your plugin. The plugin blocks about 20,000 bots a day and now my sites are running the fastest they ever have! Thank you!

This plugin helped me at first, but it forced me to install another plugin that installed against my will and didn’t even work, so I finally uninstalled it and use the competing software, which is less intrusive and respects its users.

This is probably the worst plugin i have ever installed. When i installed it, a SECOND plugin was also installed named Antihacker something. NEVER asked for it, nor i gave permission for it. Then i was informed that my site/server has issues from the Antihacker plugin RED line. But the errors were from the Antihacker plugin Deprecated PHP “trim” or something. Going from 8.2 to 8.1 didn’t help. I was able to unistall Antihacker and i was curious about the actual plugin. But i was bombarded with notices and banners and things. And i uninstalled it. This plugin shouldn’t exist here in its current state. Does Wordpress.org allows to plugins to install other plugins without the user knowing that? Without permission?

it is great, but I do wonder if some of the things seem to overlap with other plugins and I am never sure if there might be clashes between them, or which I should have on or not. having said that, very happy with the plugin overall, and it is one of the key ones I recommend you install when I set up a new site
