Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Amazing Plugin – Present Use

  • I would personally like to say thank you to Word Fence for creating this amazing plugin.

    My story: I have been doing WordPress websites for as long as I can remember. I have had my hosting account and domain registrar for over 10 years. Not once did I EVER have any issues with hackers, malicous content being put on my websites, people cracking my passwords, or anything else. Then suddenly at the start of this month, September, I got a notification email from my host that I was hacked.

    I hired a guy to fix it for me and he did so. But, I only paid him to clean up the 3 files that my host mentioned. I honestly never imagined it could be worse than that.

    I was wrong. I was hacked again a few days later by the same person that hacked me the first time. I hired the guy again, this time to do everything he needed to do in order to clean the entire website, rid it of any malware, scripts, viruses and put up a firewall for me. In all, he found over 1000 walmare, viruses, scripts, etc. I am not naive by any means. I know that we live in an unsafe world, but I never in a million years thought that IF it did happen to me, it would be THIS bad.

    I did a ton of research on the best security plugins and I found Wordfence. My guy also recommended it to me before I even mentioned anything to him lol. I installed it, but to be honest, there is a learning curve. If you are going to use it and you are not sure how, hire someone to set everything up because it will be worth it.

    I honestly feel like since I have this new guy that WORKS for a web security company AND I have wordfence, that I have a literal fence around my entire network. After its installed and set up, it still takes some time to get used to. But, in my personal situation, there is really not a whole lot the Admin needs to be taught. That is because a lot of the settings are set it and forget it or your web security guy can figure out things for you.

    Anyway. I just wanted to say thanks. Thus far, its working VERY well and I am VERY happy. The only complaint I have is that I would like to get premium, but for 6 websites its expensive. So unfortunately I will just stick with the free version rather than the premium version for all 6 of my websites.

    Thanks for the kind words! We’re not allowed to discuss premium pricing, etc on but if you want to reach out at I’d be happy to share what deep discounts you get for getting 6 licenses at one time.
