Securing your wordpress website is highly recommended but using this plugin to do so is not an absolute necessity.

I have not used this plugin you mentioned so can't really say much about the settings but if you are unsure about it then perhaps you should uninstall it for now until you have more information about how to prevent yourself from being logged out/locked out while using the plugin.

Wordpress recent versions have taken care of what most of these security plugins do. But what you should make sure is that your admin password is a strong one (ideally should consist of upper case letters, lower case letters and numbers.

In terms of website security in general, we usually make use of a free service called cloudflare and I would suggest that you try that if you are not too sure about the iThemes security plugin because cloudflare acts as a kind of shield that blocks most malicious attacks. Also it helps to save bandwidth.

Here's a basic tutorial on cloudflare:
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

NOTE: If you are targeting Nigerians and you want to use cloudflare, make sure to whitelist Nigeria in your cloudflare because by default Nigeria is blocked)
