100% effective in protecting my sites from unauthorized logins.
WordFence gives a lot of security techniques for a free plug-in. There is "Live Traffic" showing who has tried to interact with your site, giving the IP address and Country of origin. WF has a block IP addresses feature (you can also block the offender's web host if the hacker is using multiple IPs. There are scan scheduling options. The Premium version gives all the functions mentioned pluc=s Country blocking and many other options. The Premium option is $5/mo., and well worth it!
This plugin has really opened up my eyes to what is going on behind the scenes on my WordPress sites - especially the amount of bots trying to login from random countries around the world. Thanks so much!
WordPress has got your back. The free version never failed me, but to be on the safe(r) side, I subscribed ... also out of a sense of owing these guys. It might be a labor of love or purely an intellectual challenge, nevertheless, it's nice to hear the cash register ring from time to time.
BTW - I've been using this plugin ever since I converted to WordPress a few years back. It's never had a hiccup and since I got the premium version I can report that support is there when you need it.
Wordfence has helped me cleanup several sites and gives me peace of mind.
This plugin has saved me a lot of time finding and fixing damage that has occurred to sites I manage, it has been very useful and I appreciate all the hard work that must go into developing and maintaining this plugin.
I have just switch to this plugin from another security plugin. This one has more features. I will have to assume it is just as (if not more) effective than my previous one.
STONGLY ADVISE: Sign up for their newsletter. They send out updates on security issues effecting plugins and themes. This could totally save your butt.
It'd be nice to see some of what Wordfence does built-in to WordPress. Until then, it is a great tool for making WordPress safer and does the job of what might otherwise take several plugins. The free version is high value and the Premium version even higher for the time it can save through things like country blocking.
We host WordPress sites for a specific niche market and won't let clients run without Wordfence.
I am locked out from my website because they don't send the sms with code
