The WordPress Security Admin is found within its own module and can be accessed from the main Shield menu under "Security Admin".


It restricts access to the WordPress Shield Security plugin preventing unauthorized changes to your security settings.

How to turn on the Security Admin

The Security Admin is disabled by default. To turn it on, you just need to enter a Security Admin Access key and specify an automatic timeout interval for Security Admin access. (See the screenshot below)

What is the "Access Key"?

Access Key is a password that you create. It can be anything you want. You must remember it as if you do not, you will not be able to access the setting of the WordPress Shield Security plugin. 


Important: If you do not enter the Access Key, the option will not be enabled.

How to turn off the Security Admin

To turn off Security Admin you must be authenticated with the plugin first (you have to provide access key), and then go to Security Admin module => Enable/Disable Module and click the slider to disable it.

Note: If you happen to have lost or forgotten your access key, you can disable the feature altogether and, either delete your current access key or re-enter a new one. Read here on how to do that.
