5 STARS - WORDFENCE IS EXCELENT FOR MY SITE
By , for WP 3.9.1

WORDFENCE is a very good security solution for my site. I am very thankful and I suggest to any wordpress.org bloggers to install it as soon as it's possible. It's freeware and it's useful to protect. After scanning my site, it has immediately informed me that I had one page which contained a suspected malware URL (I honestly didn't know about it !!!). I had removed the suspected malware URL, I have scanned again my site with Wordfence and now I have the following result :

Congratulations! You have no security issues on your site!

So, I will NEVER use my website without my protector WORDFENCE SECURITY !

May God bless you, Wordfence !

Best regards !

A necessary plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

My new host recommended this plugin and I'm a bit embarrassed I've only recently discovered it! Now that I understand its capabilities it is the first plugin I install on any new site. I recommend every WP user install this plugin.

Wordfence lets you know when someone is trying to hack into your WP site, and I'm surprised how often that happens. I get emailed every time someone attempts to log in and you can set how many attempts they're allowed before locking from the domain completely. Brilliant stuff.

Set-up is simple and there's a whole load of other stuff Wordfence is doing that I've yet to discover, but with this and Vaultpress installed I feel pretty confident my websites are secure.

Fantastic Plugin!!
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have many websites/blogs and I've used probably ALL of the popular plugins which have been around a while for security. I highly recommend WordFence & have been using it for some time now!

I also appreciate the updates being current with WP changes and the e-mail newsletter is informative!

Thank You Guys!!!

Seems to Work well
By , for WP 3.9.1

Always hard to know if a security plug in is working but this seems to be great.

I got a malware pharma attack and it found all the pages infected for me and I hope is closing other loopholes

Essential - easy to use.

Added to all my sites because it really works
By , for WP 3.9

This is an incredible plugin for security and tracking who is online at any one time. I have installed it over 18 sites. Great way to secure your site. There is an option to also allow cloudflare as well. Stops all attempts to login with an admin or invalid login name or password. Easy to recover any file that has been changed as well.

GET IT!

Amazing Results
By ,

I've added word fence to all of my sites now. It amazes me how many attacks there are on them. Most are tiny sites that I always assumed that no one would have any interest in attacking but, man was I wrong. Loving the plugin. Loving the security.

Does what it says on the box
By ,

I'm now using using this on every site in combination with iThemes Security. After a couple of months Wordfence has performed flawlessly and the recently included cacheing feature is just icing on the cake.

A keeper for sure!
By , for WP 3.9

Out of the box it's an easy setup, even for inexperienced WP bloggers, and with the basic features covering what you need, it's a go to for just about any security need.
Pro is worth every dime.

Very helpful
By , for WP 3.9

It signals a changed code file (such as if spam injected) and sends notices of activity on the site. Very useful, would not run without it.
