This is an excellent plugin: essential and good support
By ,

This tool helped me to clean up a hacked website. It found all of the malicious files that were installed by the hacker(s), so I could delete them.

Also, on a website that is frequently attacked I was having issues with this error message (after being notified by Wordfence via email that 3 malicious files were installed by hackers):

Wordfence Live Activity: Scan Engine Error: Wordfence could not start a scan because the cron key does not match the saved key.

I found an open support request for that issue, which the Author had addressed very concisely and after turning off "WP Fastest Cache:" I killed the stalled scan and a new scan returned a report on those "malicious files" and I was able to delete them and run another scan that was clean.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate this plugin and intend to recommend that my client get the premium version.

Wow! Very more fast, right away

I just thought: "ok... try it".
I've see immediately how many my site is very now more more more fast...
Incredible. I thought that the slow depended on my hosting.
I've delete W3 total cache, and I'm very satisfied for this switch.
Well done!

This plugin saved my bacon.

I really appreciate this amazing free plugin. Through the last barrage of virus threats (because of a hole in a different plugin), Wordfence both notified me before there was damage, and gave me every step I needed to take to clean my sites. Thanks!

Effective and easy to set up

Wordfence seems to do what I need quite well, though I don't use falcon engine since I haven't had enough time to test it with other plugins I use. It is also one of the few plugins that has not given me any trouble when updating!

Awesome plugin

Love it! Thanks for this plugin, it's awesome

The scanning feature is superb...
By , for WP 4.0

I run the WordFence Scan every morning. The network blocking features are also great. I can manually block everyone who tries to attack my site, and I can block people with dynamic IPs as well. Works out of the box, which is good for beginners, but you can also configure the settings by yourself.

Superb Protection

'Wordfence is the only WordPress security plugin that provides this kind of real-time distributed protection as it learns from other sites that are attacked. It's part of what makes us the best WordPress security plugin in the business. But that's just the beginning of what we do to protect your site and help you recover from an attack.'

Génial !
By , for WP 4.0

Mon site c'est fait hacker (str_rot13, base64decode).
J'ai installé wordfence qui a immédiatement trouvé les fichiers corrompu !
Ce qui est génial c'est qu'on peut voir en un clic le code du fichier suspect, et le comparer avec l'original de référence pour être bien certain qu'on peut le supprimer !
Bref, au top du top !

Merci et bravo.

Excellent security with notices via email

This is a terrific plugin that adds a lot of security to your site and sends notices when bad stuff happens with WordPress. Really helps to keep me on the ball for client sites. Highly recommended.

Je découvre Wordfence et c'est une véritable satisfaction. A part un petit souci avec la double sécurité téléphone mobile, on se sent bien protégé. Par les temps qui courent, c'est absolument indispensable. Mille merci !
