Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Locked me out of my site

  • This plugin seems to have a lot of great features, and in particular, I thought it was really nice being able to scan all my files for issues, which quite a few ‘critical’ issues did come up.

    BUT, I was quickly made aware that registrations on my site were being blocked since Chrome kept blocking what it thought was insecure Javascript, and then after testing this for myself, when I tried logging back into my admin account, it was telling me to enter my 2FA code without giving me a place to enter the code!

    So I promptly deleted the plugin via FTP and removed the changes to the .htaccess file, and all is well with the world again. But man, how many people would know how to do that?!

    So there’s a lot of value here, but I feel like they really dropped the ball when it comes to the login form, at least as it pertains to the Vantage theme by AppThemes.
