Gives me peace of mind
By , for WP 4.0.1

Just after installing it I was amazed how many attempted hacks we had from people trying to login to our site. Knowing we had the extra help in monitoring gave me peace of mind. Now that we've locked things down I appreciate the simplicity that WordFence is but that it's watching our site all the time.

Highly Recommend

My name is JC Hines, Owner/Operator/Developer/WP Designer, Professor, Mentor. I have over 18 years experience on the Internet. I use Wordfence on all my websites and suggest you do too! If you think you may need a lifesaver on the Internet...This will be it! I love the top notice notifications I get on all my websites!

We Use WordFence on all these websites and suggest you do the same:

This is just a few of the Websites we use Wordfence on. We have many more. This is a HIGHLY recommended program by JCHines.
ATTENTION NEWBIES: This is a MUST HAVE!

Fantastic security plugin

Love the email notifications, the immediacy of the alerts, and the competency of the team behind all of this. This has also helped me weed out some malicious files and saved me a lot of headache. Thank you guys so much for your hard work!

Wonderful security plugin

I keep WP upgraded but sometimes, it's just not enough for today's evildoers so this plugin does some extra chores for busy webmasters and makes life a little easier and your WP installation more secure. Thank you for creating it!

Unidentified malicious files
By , for WP 4.0.1

I've run a few scans, and get result lines like this:

[Dec 10 09:41:47] Adding issue: This file appears to be malicious
[Dec 10 09:41:47] Adding issue: This file appears to be malicious

This problem is brought up a couple of times on the support forum, but there's no obvious solution (I did try re-scanning, but it didn't help).

Many thanks for advice

Love getting the notices in my inbox. I am grateful for the Security threat report emails that the WordFence crew send out whenever the need arises.
Grazie per il sistema di avvisi tramite inbox. Plugin estremamente utile per il controllo del proprio wordpress. Da installare di default.

Wordfence Email Notices
By , for WP 4.0.1

Love getting the notices in my inbox - letting me know who is attempting to access my site! Plus a great one I got today regarding InfiniteWP Admin Panel urgent security alert to customers to upgrade ASAP! I'm not a user of InfiniteWP but if I was - Wordfence had me covered! Keep up the good work Wordfence!

Easy to install and dull of features. Perfect for all levels of users. Had it up and running in minutes. Already helped me identify potential threats and IPs needing to be blocked. Domyourself a favor and get the pro version.

WordFence Security reports are a great added benefit
By , for WP 4.0.1

I am so glad to have a tool that is protecting my sites far better than anything I could do by myself. I am a software engineer by training and by trade, but I know that security is such a specialized field that I could never learn enough about it to guard my site well and still have the time to manage the site and add content to it.

Besides the tool itself, I am grateful for the Security threat report emails that the WordFence crew send out whenever the need arises. Even if the threat does not pertain to something on one of my sites, the emails often include valuable information I can use anyway.
