Dynamic Presence

So much from one author that I can't begin to express my appreciation for this kind of talent and dedication. If you are not already a user... I highly recommend install this and see for yourself!

Great plugin, great support
By , for WP 3.6.1

I really love this plugin and use on most sites. The paid version is even better and a modest investment for what it offers.

Really good plugin and helpful emails
By , for WP 3.6.1

The Wordfence newsletter is one of the few emails I don't mind getting. Very helpful and well-written. Easy to understand for ordinary people like me!

I have not yet utilized every feature in the plug-in, but what I have used seems well designed. Best of all, my site has been exploit-free since I started using it.

And security update e-mails too
By , for WP 3.6.1

In addition to providing a lot of protection of the site, the WordFence folks have a security e-mail list that will send out information on issues in the wild. Good info,

Excellent Plugin!

Awesome! I never knew how many hack attempts our clients were getting. We use WordFence on every single one of our clients' websites.

Simple and Effective
By ,

WordFence is a bacon-saver, especially given the increase on attacks on web sites across the Internet. This past weekend, the server support personnel from my hosting company alerted on a file calling itself the WordFence readme.txt. After all logs were read, passwords changed and other actions, it turned out that it was a false-positive.

WordFence itself was a vital tool in resolving the issue Tech Support thought was there. I honestly can't think of another WordPress plugin that can match the power, speed and aggressiveness of WordFence program - either paid or free, you're safe.

How many plugins can I say that about?

Fast, effective, easy to use
By , for WP 3.6.1

After trying a couple of different, highly rated plugins to secure my site which were disabled due to complex instructions or apparently confusing goals. I tried Wordfence and have been very happy with it.

Simple and Effective Security

After 6 months of testing on a few of my sites I can say this is one of the most robust and useful plugins I've come across. The news letter alone has alerted me to vulnerabilities in themes and plugins I commonly use which allowed me to fix before mischief makers could cause me a problem. I recommend you include extra security to your WordPress installs and Wordfence is the best solution I have found yet.
