    Wordfence 7.0.1 was a major user interface redesign which moved the focus onto security fundamentals rather than ‘eye candy’. Our emphasis is now on securing your website and doing the things that are most important to prevent a hack. This includes giving you a quick and easy way to see what your security posture is and whether you have the blacklist, firewall and malware scan enabled and if you have any current issues.

    Live traffic can be useful for some purposes e.g. seeing in real-time which bots are visiting your site. But it is not fundamental to security and in fact creates unnecessary work if you are trying to watch it and stop attacks manually. Wordfence actually does that work for you automatically now and you can disable live traffic and have a perfectly secure high performance site.

    If you would like live traffic back on the menu on the left, we have provided an option to enable that. Just ask in the support forums.
