Really good plugin. Didn't realise how many people were trying to hack my site! ( and one of my sites was hacked - and wordfence cleaned it all up. )

Awesome plugin!
Gives me a lot of peace of mind knowing that it's running on my websites, its great seeing all of the reports on blocked attacks.

Feel reassured to have these security tools protecting the website

Some really useful features here. Like being able to see where successful and failed logins are coming from. Then being able to block all those dodgy visits from the Ukraine or any other country that's trying to hack your site.

Being able to schedule scans is handy. The password audit is reassuring for clients. Too many features to list here, but the important thing is that they all seem to work well.

The free version is worth having, but the paid-for keys are cheap so it's worth upgrading. Rarely do I say that about a plugin.

Go for it

I have used Wordfence on all my sites since I discover it. It is one of the greatest tools you will need to keep an eye on what is happening on your site. If you just looking for security, go for Wordfence!

I am a programmer and have sifted through Wordfences code in order to make some alterations.

It is quality code.

In as far as the product goes, I have tried several cache engines as well and Falcon which is built into WordPress performs on par with pretty much all the others of similar function. Its VERY adept. Considering it gives your website active security at the same time as the caching it really outperforms the other cache plugins.

So its twofold. Not only does it provide really great protection in respect to security and pretty decent security audit information but atop that it makes your site perform on par with any other cache engine I tested against.

Its a winner. Integrates easy. And atop that for sites where you might be using multiple theme's via a theme switcher, Wordfence is smarter than the rest, it knows it.

Unfortunately it wont cache multiple templates although IMHO the author(s) could probably implement that pretty easily (and a great idea). Every other cache engine I tried goes completely south when it comes to multiple templates.

This is a really quality piece of work.

This is the 2nd site I have used this and it is reassuring to be able to receive

ble to receive the update of who has tried to log in - especially from the Ukraine, but it also has many other protections that I had not given much thought to in the past. It is nice to have this program keeping the watch on my sites.
