Useful plugin
By , for WP 4.5.1

We use it primarily for Live Traffic reports and for Rate Limiting crawlers ("Options"), and we use Incapsula for bot and IP blocking.

Very Effective

My websites were hacked twice in the last 60 days when I had iThemes Security installed. After the last "cleaning" I paid for, I installed Wordfence Security. Since then I have been malware "free" from attempted hacks from China, Germany, Ukraine and LA. The scan tool is very informative as are the alerts you receive when someone attempts to access your site.

What a great program. Thanks for making so many features available in the free version.

EXCELLENT.

I have used the free version and I currently use the free AND the premium on a few sites. Very happy with either version of the plugin, but of course the premium is more more more and more. Read the documentation for settings suggestions. The rare occasion I've had to contact support it was efficient, clear, and helpful. Thanks.

Unacceptable mode of failure: White Screen for whole website
By ,

WordFence crashes whole website, leaves it with a white screen. Whatever the specific incompatibility (windows, memory), this mode of failure is unacceptable. WordFence must catch these exceptions before it brings down site. The issue points to poor coding practices, feature bloat, and general sloppiness, which is death for security software.

Reliable protection
By , for WP 4.5.1

I have experienced the nightmare of having some of my websites hacked, and Wordfence helped me to restore them to full working order, and has provided me with reliable security ever since. An excellent plugin that I could not do without.

Good but not good enough
By , for WP 4.5.1

Buggy scanner. Spent hours attempting to scan my plugins and had to keep readjusting the settings in hope to get Wordfence to not break in the middle of a scan. Attempted everything recommended but nothing gives a successful scan.

Outstanding

This is a business class plugin and worth every penny for the paid version, but equally the free version is way ahead of anything else I have tried, including other paid for apps.
