  • Hi, heavy Wordfence user here. I don’t use CAPTCHA, I just use aggressive Wordfence settings along with hiding the login using WPS Hide Login plugin. My settings: Lock out after 3 failures, Lock out after 2 forgot password attempts, Count failures over 30 minutes, Lock out user for 6 hours. And, I use a list of about a dozen “Immediately” block user names, including “admin” and “administrator.” Hope that helps.

    Hi @derbydesign
    Yes, you are correct. mountainguy2 mentioned good examples for the options in “Login Security Options“, following the doc page link should be more descriptive as well.


    I had the same question. I understand both your replies, MountainGuy & wfalaa but they seem to only concern login.

    What about avoiding spams from visitors in Comments and Contact Forms?
    For them, is it useful to add a captcha plugin? Would it be a good complement to WordFence or would it be unnecessary?

    Thanks for your attention,

    Hi, same question to @fran330 is captcha or recaptcha needed for blocking spam on comments while using wordfence free version plugin?
    As far as I have cheked, in sites with captcha/recaptcha enabled on comment forms or login forms, the interaction between users (comment, register, login…) decreases a lot, but it is also a hard work erasing comments and spam accounts each day.
    Thanks for your help!
