Best Free Security Plugin for WordPress!
By , for WP 4.2.2

Wordfence is, hands-down, the BEST free security plugin for WordPress. Thank you so much for providing this fantastic product at no cost... especially when protecting your website from malware is absolutely priceless!

It tells you things you should know
By , for WP 4.2.2

I got hacked. One of the things I did in response was to run some scans to find the malware, and that process led to Wordfence Security plug-in. It found the malware and that was fixed, but it also told me things I never knew:

On average, every 2 minutes of every day someone somewhere tries to log into my blog with an administrator ID. Wordfence makes it easy to block these by IP address.

At least for the past couple of days, there have been 4 crawlers ion my site at the same time!

I really like the ability of Wordfence to detect and automatically block denial of service attacks, and its notification feature that sends an email when a problem is spotted.

I have not tried the Falcon caching engine on my high-traffic site yet. I tried it on a low-traffic site and noted that pages were indeed being cached. It was easy to implement.

Found the malware

One of my plugins was hacked with a malicious redirect. This program found it, allowed me to delete it, and got us back in business.

Best WordPress Plugin ever
By , for WP 4.2.2

I can't believe just how great this really works. After hackers wrecked my site, I discovered WordFence. It has been a God-send. Oh, the hackers came back alright, but now I have learned how to use WordFence to block them. Woot! Woot! Woot!

Better than 5 stars, I rate it 3 woots.

Awesome Plugin I've Ever Seen

I was facing a lot of malware injection issues, this plugin is awesome... Thanks devs

Best security plugin i have used
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin requires no set up and works out of box. It tends to eat up resources, but then again everything does on a shared hosting plan. i tried a few different ones and the set up on others was complicated and left holes if not configured properly. i give a five star.

Good Stuff

Great plugin, lots of functionality available at free level even. The scan does peg my processor however, still offering 5 stars as that is only partially the plugins issue.

Feeling pretty secure
By , for WP 4.2.2

Works for me. Easy to understand and pretty stunning to watch it work. Good work.

Great plugin!

BEST plugin!!! I initially had an issue about critical emails but they responded so quickly with explanation that made perfect sense so I took that back in review. They get 5 star because plugin is MUST HAVE for your WP site & they offer super fast support response.

Also their cache is great! Their middle cache option works well every time! (this is for people who had issues with other cache plugins) If you are one of those, Falcon engine won't work for you either. But their first step cache works well so don't give up! Get this plugin!

Thank you for making this plugin!

Perfect for fighting malware
