Wordfence works great
By , for WP 3.9

One of the people in our WordPress users group suggested Wordfence as a good plugin for security. It has worked flawlessly for me, and best of all, it does not conflict with two other security plugins I have installed, iThemes Security and BulletProof Security.

Kudos to the Wordfence development team!

Something Changed after 3.9
By , for WP 3.9

I just updated to the new version today but unfortunately the problem that began immediately after 3.9 upgrade persists. It will no longer scan. Plus when I clicked the OPTIONS tab I get a messagae that says

"You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

I also notice when this version of WF is active my sites slow down to a crawl. As soon as I deactivate WF the sites speeds up significantly. I use this plug in on 10 sites and all of them speed up when I deactivate WordFence.

Hopefully this is a temporary issue but there was no response to my support left yesterday. So I'll have to find another option. I hate that because up until now this plug in has been really good. But security is so important and can't leave my sites unprotected so I'm off to look for another option.

If someone from WordFence reads this review...it's not necessary to respond I've already found another option.

All the best

Really worth the money
By , for WP 3.9

I reckon this software has saved our website several times.

We see site hacks attempted and blocked regularly.

Recommend without hesitation to anyone who needs to keep their site free from hackers.

Love the warning system advising on vulnerable plugins!
By , for WP 3.9

I found this plugin very effective and the premium version is affordable and works really well. I enjoy the easy set up too.
Thanks WordFence for the warnings on vulnerable plugins!

Great !

I use it now since a while. I'm very happy with this security plugin.
Just check the "theme" checkbox as it's in there sometimes piracy files are installed by fraudulent people.

Wonderful & MUST HAVE Plugin
By , for WP 3.9

This is a GREAT tool for ALL websites to have. It stops the bots and bad people from accessing your site and allows you some peace of mind. I found some problems that I didn't even know were problems. Since then my sites are running safer, faster, and that makes me happy.

The app that does what it says it will do
By , for WP 3.8.3

This app does exactly what it says it will do. Be sure to subscribe to the emails. You'll know more about security problems w/WordPress before those who don't.
