Quite useless
By , for WP 3.9.1

Scans get never completed, they always hang, often for days. The last completed scan I had was several weeks ago. Live traffic shows Google, MSN and other bots as humans. These could be the two features I would use if this plugin only worked.

Can slow your webhost
By , for WP 3.9.1

If you activate this plugin all the time, it can slow down your webhost..

Entwickelt sich zur Spamschleuder
By ,

Ich habe Wordfence installiert und es funktioniert. Doch seit dem letzten Update hat sich Wordfence zur Spamschleuder entwickelt. Es nervt mit einem dicken Balken im Adminbereich, man solle eine E-Mail-Adresse für Alarmmeldungen eintragen. Hat man das gemacht, nervt es mit täglichen Mails man soll die Bezahlversion kaufen. Es ist einfach ein schei... Verhalten.

No Support
By , for WP 3.6

Live Activity suddenly stopped working. I posted a query here and got no reply. Uninstalled Wordfence and dropped its database tables and things are faster.

Perhaps the devs mean well, and when it worked it was interesting to see where people were visiting from, but when that feature stopped working it brought up the possibility of other features, like those related to site security and not as easily verified, also not working.

Let's just leave this at promising right now. But not production-level.

Breaks MU Installation
By , for WP 3.5.1

500 errors, 404 not found in admin area, slow backend, breaks plugins which require a license to validate....

This plugin seems to have a lot of nice features, but I just can't get it to work on my WP installation.
