The security is top-notch, plus it makes your site much faster.
I spent 200hrs last month upgrading my skill set and really learning the ins and outs of WordPress security. Soon has you host a WP site, it's like someone sends out advertising flyers to Botnets. I never knew it was this bad until my site hosts informed me that my cpu usage was HIGH due to brute force attacks.
Anyway, I tested out quite a number of the well known security plugins and options for WP and bar none, I have found Wordfence to be the shining light in my quest to thwart off attacks. Testing it live on 4 production sites on the same server, I see numerous daily attacks thwarted by Wordfence. The number of REQUESTS on my raw access server logs have gone from the 10s of thousands to only a few dozen or a few hundred a most. (not including real visitors)
Thanks to the fine Developers of WordPress. Keep up the good work.
The only thing you can really do is a file scan on the free version, everything else requires the premium version. I thought plugins in the WordPress Repository couldn't even include premium features, they had to be in separate add-ons - this plugin seems to violate tons of free plugin guidelines.
Best plugin to keep an eye on all these hackers and content "stealers"
Helped me do identify the bot that stole my complete site.(7,000+ pages)!
Was able to get everything back after identifying IP and
redirecting the thief to a bogus site. :)
Now I check logs daily!
Excellent support too.
it works and I have no problems
wI Will learn how to use it deeper
This plugin has not only saved dozens of websites on our server from hackers but also was instrumental in the repair and recovery of several sites that were hacked with some of the worst malware. This is one of the plugins to install in Stage 1 of all WordPress builds. 5 Stars! 2 Thumbs Up. Great work to Wordfence.
The title says it all. A huge help in blocking SEO bots, comment spam and other scum. Site now running faster, without all that bandwidth drain.
From the very 1st minute I fell in love with this plugin. I used to use another anti-malware plugin for a long time but Wordfence is THE WAY faster and more precise also it has more useful features. Very user friendly panel and good documentation. Overall based on comparison with other security plugins is 5*
Wordfence is one of the default plugins we install on every wp website we do.
Hey people! What plugin is that? Worst experience ever with a WP plugin...
My server was crashed and becoming impossible to access, only by hard reset the problem was resolved.
Shame! Shame! Shame!
