With kareebu Secure enabled you can protect the /administrator folder with an extra password.

This is a fork of jSecure. What's different ?
kareebu Secure has two ways in which he can operate: HTTP Authentication and (old) Compatibility mode. Both modes have been tested and work without bugs.

kareebu Secure is FREE SOFTWARE released under GNU/GPL.


Provides excellent, lightweight obfuscation of the Joomla administration/backend with a simple "on/off" setting

Ease of use

A couple of the settings are described somewhat curiously but it should not take more than 30 seconds to install and configure this to run

I used this to: Obfuscate Joomla backend from potential hackers and web-bandits


Good! But now on PHP7 it gives errors. Also in the plugin itself there is no version mentioned.

Very Easy!

Did not get the time to ask for it as I had to remove it immediately from my server


Needs to be a bit more detailed. Screenshots would be good.

This extension works perfectly, installation and configuration is a piece of cake, thanks a lot!

I first used this in 2012 and have been using it ever since for any Joomla! installation I have. It's fast, simple and to the point. The only small adjustment is that it should start off w/ a wizard upon installation, or at least provide you a link to point directly to the disabled plugin with instructions to: 1) Enable the feature; 2) Choose a url passcode; and 3) Enable the actual plugin. However it's very straightforward and reliable, saving me countless hours of hack attempts. Great plugin!

A must have!

I have built a huge number of sites to date. Remarkably the ones which had this plugin installed, never got hacked!!! All the other ones were a complete disaster. Please people do your selves a favor and simply use the plugin! A huge "thank you" to the developer!

Great, almost perfect

Works with Compatibility mode, I got problems with the HTTP Authentication mode. I use joomla 3.1.5 Also I had problems with the password (most likely a character conflict as explained on the site of Ksecure.) Beside of this all it's a great plugin for security issues. Recommended !

I always use this extension witout problems, I recommend it!

The obvious advantage is the ability to add exclusions - you can exclude pages, entire components or menu items. Basically any link can be excluded from caching.
