All in One WP Security is one of a small number of security-related WordPress plugins that are completely free to use. The plugin does not feature any premium plans or fees and provides all the services All in One has to offer completely free through WordPress.org.
As such, with All In One, you're not getting a plugin that has the more important features turned off. On the other hand, this means that the developers aren't getting funded directly for the development, so it may not be as polished and fully featured as some of the other offerings.
All in One WP Security provides its users with a laundry list of features standard to many of the industry’s most popular plugins. The plugin’s user-focused security options allow its users to monitor their own security with a password strength tool and forcing logouts for users after a configurable time period. All in One’s users can see a complete list of all online users and add Google ReCaptcha to various aspects of their site, including user logins and Forgot Password pages.
All in One’s built-in firewall and automatic security systems can detect various suspicious activities within a user’s WP site. All in One can implement several custom rules to protect against malicious actions like Cross-Site Scripting and block access to a user’s site resources. All in One will automatically log a variety of information about a user’s site allowing them to track pertinent data to a site’s security, like 404 events and login/logout information of all users.
All in One also features the ability to block off some essential functions of a website. For example, the plugin allows disabling the ability to hotlink images from an All in One user’s website. Users can also block text editor functions like right-clicking, text selection, and copying through All in One WP Security. All in One presents a complete list of the plugin’s extensive security features on its WordPress.org download page.
All in One WP Security seeks to provide its 900,000+ users with a full suite of protections for their WordPress sites without paying a premium fee like many of its contemporaries.
The plugin offers simple, streamlined options for users at any level of experience to start protecting their WordPress site with the push of a button.
All in One comes with a complete firewall and a wide array of features for users to protect all different areas of their site from front-end to login platforms.
The plugin is entirely free to download and features regular updates and committed support from its developer through the WordPress.org support forums.
