The first step of the guide to the WP Simple Firewall plugin will help you set the Dashboard features.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the Dashboard, scroll down to Simple Firewall  and choose Dashboard from the dropdown menu. The first section will show you a summary of the plugins activated features. This will tell you whether they are turned on or off, and you can click the button marked Go to Settings to go to each section.


Step 3) Scroll down the Dashboard page to the General Plugin options. From here, you can enter the email address that you want your email reports to be sent to.


Step 4) When updates become available, you will be notified. Disabling this option will hide these admin notices about available updates.


Step 5) Tick the box marked ‘Delete Plugin settings’ if you want to delete all of the plugin settings and options when you deactivate the plugin. Save all settings at the bottom of the page.


Step 6) Underneath the save the settings button, there are a range of tools available, including other plugins from the creators, links to the plugin help and support page and a review page where you can give your views on the plugin.


The next step of the guide will focus on How to Restrict Admin Access to WP Simple Firewall.
