Love this plugin AND even the newsletter

The new performance (caching) controls are great! No longer have to use a third party caching plugin, this one does it all.

Great protection. Blocks bad behavior on my sites regularly.

Best Security App
By ,

Love this app, very useful, regularly updated and hugely reassuring that it actually fixes issues that it finds effortlessly.

I very rarely write reviews but Wordfence deserves all the credit for this.

Wordfence works great
By , for WP 3.9

One of the people in our WordPress users group suggested Wordfence as a good plugin for security. It has worked flawlessly for me, and best of all, it does not conflict with two other security plugins I have installed, iThemes Security and BulletProof Security.

Kudos to the Wordfence development team!

Something Changed after 3.9
By , for WP 3.9

I just updated to the new version today but unfortunately the problem that began immediately after 3.9 upgrade persists. It will no longer scan. Plus when I clicked the OPTIONS tab I get a messagae that says

"You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

I also notice when this version of WF is active my sites slow down to a crawl. As soon as I deactivate WF the sites speeds up significantly. I use this plug in on 10 sites and all of them speed up when I deactivate WordFence.

Hopefully this is a temporary issue but there was no response to my support left yesterday. So I'll have to find another option. I hate that because up until now this plug in has been really good. But security is so important and can't leave my sites unprotected so I'm off to look for another option.

If someone from WordFence reads this review...it's not necessary to respond I've already found another option.

All the best
