Easy fix to the "Security Check" hackers.
By ,

Fixed 3 sites on my server that were hacked, and has blocked dozens of other attempts at unauthorized logins.

A must have!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Before setting up my first WordPress site I spent a lot of time reading and trying several security plugins until I found Wordfence. The Plugin has a lot of documentation and with a bit of time and good will even a non pro like me is able to set it up and benefit from it. And most of all really protects your site: it is a must have!

Effective blocking of brute force attacks
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have just seen that more that more than 22,000 brute force attacks occurred, originating from one IP on one of my sites over a period of six hours, all blocked effectively by Wordfence. This stopped about two hours ago and another started from a different IP, which has already numbered more than 16,000 blocked hits, thanks to Wordfence.

Saved my site from being hacked
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is amazing. After being hacked for several times (although with strong psw and updated plugins), I installed Wordfence and it has saved my site ever since. Amazing. Settings can be a bit overwhelming but they all make sense. Thanks for the Author!

Simply #1 choice about security
By , for WP 3.9.1

I tried several security plugins in the past until I found Wordfence. This plugin has it ALL! If I new it from the beginning I would have saved a lot of time. I wish there was a 6th start in the rating system! ^^

feel better that is is enabled; could be easier to block IPs
By ,

I have at various points tried a number of the security plugins, due to the rampant efforts of malcontents to break into even the most mundane of wordpress sites. The plugins I have tried all basically work, but this one seems to be much more robust in its scans and being proactive. I will likely go to premium version, but . . . it is still painful to manually add IPs to the blacklist. The other plugin I used (IP Blacklist) - that was one click. Here, I have to copy and paste the IP (unless I am missing something). And I notice that when I go premium, I can block countries, but the vast majority of the IPs I am seeing trying to break in, are from "unknown location" so I do not think that is going to reduce the need to manually block IPs. I also get that throttling them will probably get them to move on to other targets, so what I am doing is probably overkill . . . but some of these hackers have tried various things that make me think they have a bit more interest in getting in.

Anyway, the plugin works well for me.

Seems to work great!
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really know very little about web site management but our site was hacked and I have had to learn. I am still very much a novice but when I ask a question it is always answered. I went to the live scan and was suprised by the number of attacks that had taken place. This program allowed me to block those attacks.

Excellent plugin & probably the best cache plugin too
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have been using Wordfence for a few monthes.
It's an excellent plugin that make you aware of problems, strange intrusions or plugins to update.

For a month or two it has been including a caching functionality, Falcon Engine which is astonishingly good and replaced my previous caching plugin.
