By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a must have for all my websites.
Thanks a lot for the new features in locking routines (in 6.0.10).

I had no idea what was happening on my website until Wordfence
By , for WP 4.2.2

My hosting company had blocked access to my site a number of times and I had to pay a lot of money to have it cleaned and unblocked.

Thanks to Wordfence, this is less likely to happen again.


Thank you.

A superior plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

WOW I am totally impressed with Wordfence. I installed it on a few websites about 2 weeks ago. I get notified by email when someone logs in as admin and when there are any security problems - so far only plugins needing updating. Absolutely brilliant plugin, can't recommend it enough.

Great plugin

this plugin helped me identify a hacker in no time! Saved me a lot of time.

Good, but the live scan will murder your server...

I'm not sure who coded the live scan, but slap them. hard. It really needs to be off by default as it will munch through the RAM on the server at a truly alarming rate, to the point it can make the site unusable. That really needs working on.

Excellent product giving very proactive security.

Awesome - Every Site Needs This
By , for WP 6.0.8

I've been using wordfence for some time now. I tweak it to my liking and know I'm a lot safer. This plugin has been giving brute force attempts on my sites hell for some time now. I never realised just how much one of my sites was being attacked till I installed this and started getting lockouts on failed logins and they would change their IP using a VPN and try again then give up because it would take to long to brute. etc

I highly recommend this in either by itself, or for a little extra security get acunetix plugin to go with it and change some common vulnerabilities with that as well.

If your site doesn't have this plugin you need it.

Amazing plugin
