It's Helping Us.
By , for WP 3.9.1

Effectively helps identify traffic that may be trying to damage our site, and allows blocking of those IPA's or hosts. I get a warning when an IP address tries to access the site too many times and is blocked out. Can also throttle users who abuse site queries. So far, so good. Since we're a volunteer organization, we don't have time to monitor this 24/7, so any help is beneficial.

Fixes and protects
By , for WP 3.9.1

Our WP Network was infected with MW:SPAM:SEO. I then installed Wordfence and ran a scan which identified the infected file and showed how to fix it. What a relief! Wordfence comes with very comprehensive security options, great security plugin.

Free Version Rocks!
By , for WP 3.9.1

So many times the free version is just to suck you in - so I was really pleased to find a plugin that helped protect the site w/o having to commit to a monthly expense via SAAS account. I'll be upgrading this year; but for now this does it's job. I love getting the daily emails letting me know someone was locked out after trying to hack into the site.

Thanks for the super helpful plugin!!

Simply Amazing
By , for WP 3.9.1

What more could you ask for? A security plugin that keeps you informed. Sure, the site is still vulnerable regardless of how much security you install or have in place, but the fact is, every step you take to secure your site is one more step in the right direction to keeping your site... yours.

Very Helpful

I'm constantly updated about the goings on with my site and when odd things happen, I can look to Wordfence to see whether or not it's a virus or if I'm adding vulnerable plugins to my site.

Did everything I wanted and more
By , for WP 3.9.1

Cleaned up an infected site I had dropped on my lap.

Notifies me of issues such as spurious log in attempts and out of date plugins.

Adding to all the WordPress sites I manage as a matter of course.

A must have
By , for WP 3.9.1

Works great and helps me to keep an eye on the sites I'm monitoring. A clear recommendation for every WordPress user. Also I love the email alerts about available updates and security problems.
