A good security plugin, but the caching tool (Performance Setup) is not.

I love the Live Traffic feature. It helps me to detect IP addresses that are keep attacking my sites so I can block them right away. Wordfence is one of security plugins that I always install on my WordPress sites.

Satisfied with the security side, one day I tried to use their built-in caching tool (under Performance Setup menu). It seems all well until I checked the reports on Google Webmasters. It's full of 403 error. I tried to test some urls through "Fetch as Google", the results are all error. I immediately suspect the Wordfence caches are the culprit because everything is fine before I turned on the cache. I turned off the caches and retest it again on Webmasters. The problems did go away.

The bottom line, I am satisfied with Wordfence as security plugin, but not as caching plugin.

Helped me to eradicate a persistent hack
By , for WP 4.1

A friend's site was compromised and every attempt I made to clean up the hack failed. Wordfence found a backdoor that I had been unable to locate, and it alerted me to the attack as soon as the backdoors were installed. Since installing wordfence, we've no longer had the problem with these attacks.
