    I personally do not use any security plugins at all. In my opinion, if you know what you are doing there is no need for these kinds of plugins. WordPress is already a damn secure system when you pay attention to a few things.

    On the other hand, those plugins can be helpful for the not so experienced WP user or for users who need some helping hand to harden their WordPress site.

    I operate the plugin WP Staging (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-staging/)
    Unfortunately it sometimes happen that WordFence blocks WP Staging requests and makes it unusable.

    So, why do I still give a 5-star rating?

    This is simply because when I raised this issue in the Wordfence support forum, I’ve got a fast, professional and helpful answer by one of the Wordfence guys @wfdave within a short time which I did not expect it.

    So this security plugin is definitely one of the better ones and even though I am still not certain if I personally would use it I at least know why this plugin is so much popular and great rated.

    Keep up the good work, guys.

    René
