    Before purchasing BulletProof Security Pro please install BulletProof Security Free and run the Setup Wizard.  If you experience compatibility problems with BPS free then BPS Pro will not be compatible with your Server type.

    If your website is already hacked before installing BPS Pro, then BPS Pro will not automatically dehack/cleanup your website nor can any other plugin automatically clean up/dehack a hacked website (they will probably find the obvious hacker files/code, but will never find the hidden hacker backdoor files/code).  Please see this link for the steps you will need to do to dehack/cleanup your hacked website before installing BPS Pro on your site:  http://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/website-is-already-hacked-will-bps-pro-automatically-fix-or-remove-the-hackers-files-and-code/

    Compatible with PHP Server Versions:
    PHP5.x, PHP7.x (Note: PHP.net decided to use PHP7.x version naming instead of PHP6.x)

    Compatible Hosting/Host Server Types:
    Types: Shared, VPS, Dedicated, Managed, Colocation, In-house
    Types: Apache, Linux, Nginx, LiteSpeed, Windows (Windows IIS)

    Web Host Compatibility Check
    Aruba.it Hosting requires additional BPS Pro setup steps:  https://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/aruba-it-hosting-special-requirements-for-bps-pro-installation-and-setup/

    BPS and BPS Pro are compatible with most Web Hosts worldwide (350,000+), but are not compatible with these 3 Web Hosting Companies (Landis Holdings, NTT Communications & Yahoo! SiteBuilder Hosting – Due to Custom Server Configurations and/or Server Restrictions) 
    Note:  WordPress.com (not WordPress.org) Free, Premium and Business Hosting does not allow installing 3rd party/premium/paid plugins. You cannot install the BPS Pro plugin on WordPress.com.

    Resellerzoom (Landis Holdings)
    Modvps (Landis Holdings)
    WowVPS.com (Landis Holdings)
    JaguarPC (Landis Holdings)

    Plugin/Theme Compatibility
    BPS Pro and the JobRoller Theme: are not compatible with each other.  If you are using the JobRoller Theme then find an alternative security plugin.  See this Forum Topic for more information:  http://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/jobroller-theme-emails-not-working-captcha-not-working-login-security-not-working/

    BPS Pro and the Auction Theme by SiteMile:  Mostly compatible, but js and css scripts and styles are hard/forced loaded by the Auction Theme, which causes problems for BPS Pro JTC Anti-Spam|Anti-Hacker jQuery UI Tooltip and the BPS Pro plugin pages do not display visually correct.  See this Forum Topic for more information:  http://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/auction-theme-by-sitemile-jtc-jquery-tooltip-not-working-css-and-js-not-displaying-correctly/

    BPS Pro and the Hide My WP plugin: are not compatible with each other.  Most BPS Pro features are broken by the Hide My WP plugin.

    Hi

    Would you please specify an alternative to “Hide My WP” plugin for hiding the WP, theme and plugin identities?

    We need to use your plugin and still having “Hide My WP” functionalities

    Thanks in advace

    Do you have the BPS or BPS Pro plugin installed?  If you have BPS Pro installed then you would not need to have the Hide My WP plugin installed or any other WordPress security plugins installed.  BPS Pro is a complete website security solution for hacker and spammer protection.  With that said, what functionality in the Hide My WP plugin do you think you need?  If that functionality is something that we would consider real website security functionality then we can add it to the BPS and BPS Pro plugins.  What I mean by “real” website security functionality is that “hiding” is a form of obfuscation and not actually really website security, but does have the beneficial aspect of preventing some random Bots from finding a WordPress website.  Most Bots will still know that your site is a WordPress site since we believe it is not really possible to completely “hide” the fact that a WordPress site is a WordPress site.

    What I mean by “real” website security functionality is that “hiding” is a form of obfuscation and not actually really website security, but does have the beneficial aspect of preventing some random Bots from finding a WordPress website.

    I do agree that security through obscurity should never be your main protection. However, since many attacks are done by bots, I still think that using it as additional protection is a pretty good idea. Although BulletProof Security is an excellent plugin, as long as it has no negative effects and doesn’t involve much work, it can’t hurt to add some additional security by using a plugin like Hide My WP or WP Hide & Security Enhancer.

    Please note that WordPress already allows to move the wp-content, plugins and uploads directories by changing the default constants in wp-config.php. It doesn’t do everything that the above mentioned plugins do, but at least something. This works great with BulletProof Security, with the exception of a small bug https://forum.ait-pro.com/forums/topic/hidden-plugin-folder-hpf-shows-alerts-for-all-files-in-the-plugins-folder-if-folder-is-renamed/ in the Pro version that will be fixed in the next update.

    BPS Pro and the Hide My WP plugin: are not compatible with each other.  Most BPS Pro features are broken by the Hide My WP plugin.

    I’m just wondering, what about WP Hide & Security Enhancer? It seems to offer even more features than the free version of Hide My WP.

    Laurențiu – If the plugin is compatible with BPS Pro then the choice to use it or not is entirely up to you.
