If you’re using WP-engine as your host then you should check out their disallowed plugins page. Even if you’re not using them you should still check out this list. WP-engine curate plugins for their users and identify plugins with security or performance issues. I was surprised when I first checked out this list to find quite a few plugins they don’t recommend. I’m not going to repeat them here because they update them regularly, but definitely suggest reading through the list before installing any plugins.
