    Can you confirm that I can run both iThemes Security and Wordfence together? Any conflict?

    PS: Some topics already clear that there is no conflict but they are very old topics created when it was Better WP Security not iThemes owned.

    I haven’t heard anyone saying it wouldn’t. I have said several times here that because of Windows background I generally don’t recommend two security programs running at the same time (like Norton and McAfee – but thats a different post!). However the plugins are a little different in that I think as long as you don’t try to have both do the same job you should be ok. I did find this article from a poster here, but it requires membership.

    I’ll leave this open to the community to see if anyone else wants to weigh in.


    i would love to know the answer to this…

    I have been using both of these plugins on a bunch of sites and cannot report any issues, fortunately. Even with some of the functionality overlapping, like forcing strong passwords and brute force lockouts. Allthough, I should probably use one or the other so they are not overlapping.

    They are both great plugins, with some overlapping functions and slightly different areas of security.
