All In One WP Security And Firewall Miscellaneous Settings helps you activate the following options copy protection, frames and more.

AIOWPS plugin has a miscellaneous section that allows you to further protect your site by activating one or all of the following options. The miscellaneous section will keep on growing with future updates.

Miscellaneous Features:

  • Copy Protection = This feature allows you to disable the ability to select and copy text from your front end. When admin user is logged in, the feature is automatically disabled for his session.
  • Frames = This feature allows you to prevent other sites from displaying any of your content via a frame or iframe. When enabled, this feature will set the “X-Frame-Options” paramater to “sameorigin” in the HTTP header.
  • Users Enumeration = This feature allows you to prevent external users/bots from fetching the user info with urls like “/?author=1”. When enabled, this feature will print a “forbidden” error rather than the user information.
  • WP REST API = This feature allows you to block WordPress REST API access for unauthorized requests. When enabled this feature will only allow REST requests to be processed if the user is logged in.
