Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » Wordfence with iThemes security

  • Resolved GoldieGal


    Hello I was wondering if the use of ithemes security with wordfence at the same time help enhance security? I know some of the features are not the same.

    Thank you

    Hi @goldiegal, thanks for your question.

    There may be overlapping features when running two security plugins at the same time that can cause performance issues if both are scanning for the same vulnerabilities or checking the same files concurrently, so it would be my advice for most people to choose their preferred security plugin option and stick with that.

    I am not closely familiar with ithemes security’s options, but if you are comfortable poking around in the settings and can enable/disable features so that both plugins are performing different actions to your preference, then it could be workable.
