PHP Guard is designed to help PHP developers protect their code!
What is PHP Guard?
PHP is a script interpretor. So, when you, as a developer or even an enterprise, want to distribute your product, you would want to protect your source code.
PHP Guard does just that! PHP Guard is a code obfuscation plugin that helps developers to distribute their WordPress plugins with ease.
PHP Guard allows you to protect your code from intellectual theft in just a few clicks!
What is Obfuscation?
Obfuscation helps in making your code un-intelligible to humans. However, the code, when evaluated at runtime, PHP can parse and execute it just as normally.
When distributing your code, you may not want other people to modify or adapt your product. Obfuscation is a very good tool to achieve this goal.
How does PHP Guard Work?
- Removes all documentation.
- Changes the program logic to a complex one.
- Converts simple string to such a combination of codes that is not readable by humans.
- Changes all your meaningful variable, function, classes or constants and even Constant names
- Takes in a zip of your project and returns you the same zip with obfuscated code.
