Simple, fast, powerful
By , for WP 4.4

Easy to configure and startup, fast and secure protection with database and file backup. A must for every WP based website.

Great for de-hacking a site
By , for WP 4.4

I installed this plugin after reading about an issue on the forums and took the recommendation. It found several minor hacks on my site, and cleaned them up. A few months later, it notified me about a vulnerable plugin I had installed, and also notified me about bots (presumably) that were trying to login. This is a great plugin - even the free version, but I'll be buying the premium version for sure.

Great plugin

It's definitely helped keep bad folks away from my site. Love it!

A great security plugin!

This plugin has kept me safe from hack attempts and even lets me know when one of my other plugins may create a security risk. I love this plugin!

Good tool
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is a pretty comprehensive security plugin, especially given that it's free. It hasn't totally stopped my site from getting hacked but at least it identifies the malicious files and lets me delete them. I also like the live traffic feature where you can see who's trying to access your admin area.

Robust and Friendly

Not only does it work well, it has excellent documentation. Well done, team - and thanks!

Works, easy to configure!
By , for WP 4.3.1

My web site got hacked a bit somehow. After cleaning it and making passwords stronger I installed WordFence. Almost immediately, it started reporting failures of hackers trying to log in! Highly recommended for free version. I'm tempted to upgrade to at least the next level.

Great plugin. Free functions work as they should
By , for WP 4.3.1

Great plugin. Also, the fact that the plugin doesn't force you to upgrade to a premium version and all essentials are free is a very welcomed policy.

Please, keep it free!

Before I installed Wordfence, I experienced one security breach after another. Since I installed this plugin, I haven't had any further problems. It works great.

Can't run a site without it

My blog was recently compromised -- the hackers infected several folders with PHP scripts and gained root access. Using Wordfence, I was able to clean up the mess and thwart future attacks.

Can't imagine running a blog with this plugin!!!
