I love this!

The idea is so simple, yet useful. To put a password into the url itself makes a site invisible to intruders. Sadly, it doesn't support J5.
Ease of use
Install. Add two words. Use. That's all. This is so neat and elegant.
The developer seems to be active at GitHub, but this extension is now 4 yrs old without support for J5. I do hope it will arrive shortly.
I used this to: All my Joomla installations. I haven't had any adverse attacks on pages with this plugin in use. Simply love it. I would dearly like to be able to use it in the future as well. (Hint-hint, mr Developer!)

Simply Great !

It works perfectly even on Joomla 4.2.3. It does what it should do.
Ease of use
It can't be easier. Just a plugin with 3 boxes to type the secret code of the URL and the Redirect URL.
I didn't use the support. It wasn't needed. Everything worked fine with the sites I used it in.
Yes, you'll find a short explanation on their website. You don't need anything else.
I used this to: I used this extension to protect the backend URL or my websites.

Working well

Working well so far on Joomla 4; simple to use and provides additional security. Replaced a similar extension that's not been updated to v4.
Ease of use
Easy; follow the example provided.

Eenvoudig te installeren en te configureren. Even zoeken in extensies.
Ease of use
Gemakkelijk in gebruik. Volg de instructies. Die zijn voldoende.
Nog niet bekend. Nog geen gebruik van gemaakt. Kan nog komen. Hoop van niet.
Erg eenvoudig. Nog geen uitleg hoe te handelen als de URL niet meer werkt. Is bij mij al eerder gebeurd.
Via FTP een ander bestand openen
I used this to: Veiligheid voor mijn website. Om hackers het lastiger te maken. Kan ik iedereen aan raden.
It protects hackers from reaching the administrative login to enter the backend of your site.
Ease of use
Install it, select a key and a value and use them in the URL for accessing the backend login. The developers give an example in the plugin.
The webpage explains how it works. It has links for reporting issues and getting the latest version.
Documentation is pretty clear.
I used this to: I used an earlier version of this after my website was taken down because crackers were hammering on the backend login of my site. It is quick to install, easy to use and just works.
It works absolutely fine and thanks for a good extension and keeping it free :)
I use this on all my sites Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 I highly recommend this extension. Easy to use and it works! My hack attempts dropped to almost zilch.

Looks good

I will only say it looks good because there website is actually down so nobody can download it... Consider uploading it to codejoomla please.
Owner's reply: Please, feel free for using my repository on GitHub. It is always up.

Thank you!

I installed the plugin version for Joomla 1.5: it was the only one available I found for this version of Joomla. I spent 1 minute to configure it and it worked fine.

I recommend it!

This plugin does what it says.

Thank you
