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.

Used to scan then it stopped
By , for WP 4.2.2

Purchased PRO version. It used to scan fully. I did NOT change my website and after some WordPress updates and Wordfence updates, for some reason it just sits on scan and won't finish.

I reached out for support. They told me they thought it was my other plugins 'maybe' causing a 'conflict' or my own server. But would not answer me to tell me why they did not think it was a Wordfence plugin issue. I gave them Admin access to check my WordPress, and after they checked into my WordPress they said it was not a Wordfence issue, then when I asked how they came up with this logic, they said they cannot troubleshoot my site (I did not ask them to do this). Then they basically said I asked too many questions and wanted to know if I wanted a refund.

I see on the forum I am not the only person whose site sits on scan and does not finish scanning. I give it 2 stars because it's not a bad product (still needs work) if they can take responsibility that there is an issue others report that it does not fully scan and address it. They like to blame other plugins but don't help explain, well this must be the ideal set up for their Wordfence product to work (users must only use these plugins with our products). It's like this Wordfence plugin is so sensitive it can have easy conflict with other plugins or something and they blame the other plugins, they don't check their own product could maybe be the issue. How can I not have other plugins to work with my site?? This makes no sense. Otherwise it's not a bad product overall.

Feeling pretty secure

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!

The review title says it all.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

Some plugins are really a hustler when it comes to compatibilities and usability. Most of them are simply amazing. But Wordfence ... this is Excellent. It really secures and speeds up your site with absolutely no hustles nor interferences during it's functioning. Keep it up team Wordfence.
