very efficient to avoid hacker
Ease of use
your admin url is protected in 1mn using the module and basic configuration
my website is pretty complicated so i faced some issue, the support react in less than 10mn, and after several exchange they fixed all issue
Value for money
excellent not so expensive to have peace on your admin page from kiddy hacker
I used this to: my website
It's much better than version 3.1, which is what we were using.
Ease of use
Nice interface.
I'm a self-taught "webmaster", so I failed to remove the old version entirely. Omkar fixed that in a very timely fashion and now we're good.
Nice screenshots, but I would like to see a manual or at least some more detail. I like as much information as I can process.
Value for money
Worth every penny.
I used this to: The church's website, created by my predecessor. We were hacked once before, but this will be a big help to plug that leak.
Protects perfectly to my Joomla Website.
Ease of use
Yes. Easy to setup, no more getting confuse.
Quick Response.
Well explained.
Value for money
Yes, of course!
I used this to: Preventing unwanted login attempts.
I was hacked every 1-2 months before, which means reinstall all my 10 joomla sites (all within the same provider). I was bore and angry with it.

Now, every ting is fine, and more I receive an email for each attempt, so I can tell you this is mandatory to protect your joomla sites with a component like that one.

Can be improved, but support is reactive. Good !

Good security component.

Nice security feature for joomla, worked with me first try, I would only remind users to add the ? in www/

I missed it, but quickly realised after reading the support forum.
Using jSecure Authentication in Joomla 2.5 and 1.5 since version 1.0.9 (March 2010).

Advantages: You can hide the path to the administrative area of ​​the site, log on the entrance and to block access by IP address.

Disadvantages: Sometimes when you upgrade the expansion there are problems with access to the administrative area.

Good value for money, easy to configure. Closes one of the biggest problems in the site's security - access to the administrative area.

I use to hide the administrative area of all sites that are creating.

Engaged in web technologies since March 2007. Use Joomla since December 2009.

Excellent Plugin!

This is a must have plugin! I've been using this plugin for more than two years now and my site is well secured!! Thanks guys.
Personally, I like this extensions. But back before it lauched the component. Back when it just a plugin. It is easy to configure. Just add the secret key and it works just fine. But the component really need some extra effort to make it works. But overall. I give thumbs for the developers.
I've been using this component/plugin for many years. And it all come back to me as a perfectly nice and reliable Joomla extensions that I couldn't resist. Helping me out to cover up and secure my backdoor area from unwanted cheater and very unpleasant people.

Very recommended extensions that you must have on your Joomla site!

Excellent Job
