Too big for the little guys
By , for WP 3.9.2

I installed the plug in and tried to run my first scan. Got this error.

[Aug 21 19:20:54] Contacting Wordfence to initiate scan
[Aug 21 19:20:56] Scan terminated with error: WordFence API error: Wordfence is currently experiencing high load and our servers are giving scan priority to paid customers. Please try your scan again in a few seconds.

Waited 30 minutes and tried again. Same issue. if this is the error we are going to get then they should only cater to paid members. That's obviously who they care about...

I was not opposed to paying after trying it out. But I could not even run my first scan. Thanks for nothing guys. Huge Fail in my book, no matter how good your product may have been.

Great Plugin !!!
By , for WP 3.9.2

I like everything especially the live info. This can tell me about nonexistent pages and correct them with Redirection plugin.

Look Forward to more from this plugin in the future.....

I'm putting this on all my websites. I can see my traffic in real tine if I want. I get emails about needed updates. I can use it to limit access. It's very useful!

Very good

It's sometimes hard to tell the difference between scanners, but after working with this one for a while, I believe it is superior to the rest. so I'm sticking to this one.

Does just what it says
By , for WP 3.9.2

After spending time looking over various scanners, I found Wordfence the easiest to use and that its detection is impeccable. We have a custom footer, which is a change from the standard theme, Wordfence picked up on this, on the very first scan done.

Essential

Without a doubt the most important plugin in my collection. Robust free security features and not-overbearing but convenient premium service.

Outstanding security plugin - recommended and worth premium support
By , for WP 3.9.2

We used the trial for a week and then paid for the premium upgrade.
If you are concerned about security and wonder f your site is under attack, try this plugin. Then be prepared for a surprise.

Lots of configurable options. Works very well. Doesn't seem to slow the site down.

Love the real time reporting. I have been able to provide my older re community with proactive support getting on the site when they have had login problems.

You're gonna like what you see in this plugin.

Our site got hacked. Once we got it back online we installed word fence and it's been secure ever since! Thanks WordFence!
