I know Wordfence moved away from providing free API keys via their website, but are these still provided via the plugin, and necessary? I am getting the error “Wordfence could not get an API key from the Wordfence scanning servers when it activated …” in my WP dashboard upon installing the plugin. I checked with my server provider (stablehost) and they say that their servers are able to connect to Wordfence’s scanning servers (the connectivity test in the options side-tab positively confirms this too). I also tried disabling/re-enabling the plugin and deleting Wordfence tables, re-installing the plugin, etc., and nothing seems to work.
