Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Thanks for ruining a great plugin – version 7.* is a piece of junk!

  • What started as a great plugin turned out to be a performance hog (especially during scans) and pretty bad compared to what it used to be. I can no longer run scans (they time out, run out of memory, etc.) which has never happened in version 6.*. I own 18 sites at different hosts and ALL of them have problems with Wordfence scans after upgrading to 7.* versions. Needless to say, the new UI is crappy and much less intuitive than the one in versions prior to 7.*. I downgraded all my sites to version 6.3.22 (last good version) but will start actively looking for replacement for Wordfence as I don’t want to run outdated version of the plugin.

  • Hi mishash!
    Sorry to hear you’ve had a poor experience with Wordfence. We had some accessibility issues with one of our cloud servers last week which affected scan performance for some customers on some specific hosts. This has now been fixed. If you think that may have been an issue on your sites, that should now be resolved.

    I saw you had posted in our support forum as well about more general performance issues. This isn’t something we’ve seen on other sites, but I’ll look in to that and forward it to our dev team.

    Thanks for the feedback!
