Besides the security features, I love the site visitor info you can dig out of the log files.
I have been using this plugin for 2 weeks now and it works very well. It is very easy to use and setup. The option page is written in plain language, no need to know much about computers. Thank you Wordfence team for a great product!
I received from Wordfence a timely WordPress security alert about a plugin vulnerability on my site, what the vulnerability could result in, if not fixed, and exactly what to do to protect the website against the vulnerability.
I've been evaluating this plugin on a few sites for a while now and it looks very good. I like the paid options, such as geo-blocking, which I think would be essential for critical sites and the cost appears affordable.
The free version provides exceptional features, particularly the ability to limit access and track IPs which are attempting automated hacking. I appreciate the email advisories which alert me to plugin vulnerabilities and the plugins auto-update feature. We're testing the Falcon Engine based caching to improve performance. At this stage, no problems have been found while using the plugin.
A developer that I know recommended the WordFence plugin, and I am impressed--updates when there is a suspicious event and alerts when I log in both give me peace of mind. Love it.
Lots of options but easy to configure. Wordfence recently help me detect and stop a brute force attack on my site. They really keep up on WordPress vulnerability and update often to protect you, even when plugin authors don't.
A small issue on shared servers: pay attention to your memory usage, especially if you run multiple sites. On one host I had to turn live traffic off and set the memory limit Wordfence down to 30 megs.
I've been very pleased with wordfence. It does the job that would require multiple plugins to perform. Security, Antivirus, Spam control, Firewall...the list goes on.
I like the ease of installing, most defaults preset, easy instructions on the website for other settings. I had it working in an hour and felt more secure right away. I do like the notifications when action is taken.
Has blocked numerous hacker attempts. Regular Email updates are excellent too. Pretty easy to use.
Found this plugin post-hack and wish I'd found it sooner.
It's comprehensive yet easy to understand and certainly helped me get my sites back up working again after they were hacked - and will now hopefully help me keep them clean.
A thoroughly deserved 5* and a big thank you to the developers.
Just would like to give these guys a 5 star rating. This is an awesome service they are providing for WP bloggers
