Coat of Armour indeed
By , for WP 4.3.1

I spent 200hrs last month upgrading my skill set and really learning the ins and outs of WordPress security. Soon has you host a WP site, it's like someone sends out advertising flyers to Botnets. I never knew it was this bad until my site hosts informed me that my cpu usage was HIGH due to brute force attacks.

Anyway, I tested out quite a number of the well known security plugins and options for WP and bar none, I have found Wordfence to be the shining light in my quest to thwart off attacks. Testing it live on 4 production sites on the same server, I see numerous daily attacks thwarted by Wordfence. The number of REQUESTS on my raw access server logs have gone from the 10s of thousands to only a few dozen or a few hundred a most. (not including real visitors)

Thanks to the fine Developers of WordPress. Keep up the good work.

Must Have Plugin for WordPress
By ,

Best plugin to keep an eye on all these hackers and content "stealers"
out there.

Helped me do identify the bot that stole my complete site.(7,000+ pages)!

Was able to get everything back after identifying IP and
redirecting the thief to a bogus site. :)

Now I check logs daily!

Excellent support too.

All is ok

Outstanding Security & Recovery
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin has not only saved dozens of websites on our server from hackers but also was instrumental in the repair and recovery of several sites that were hacked with some of the worst malware. This is one of the plugins to install in Stage 1 of all WordPress builds. 5 Stars! 2 Thumbs Up. Great work to Wordfence.

Huge timesaver

The title says it all. A huge help in blocking SEO bots, comment spam and other scum. Site now running faster, without all that bandwidth drain.

The best amongst security plugins
By , for WP 4.3.1

From the very 1st minute I fell in love with this plugin. I used to use another anti-malware plugin for a long time but Wordfence is THE WAY faster and more precise also it has more useful features. Very user friendly panel and good documentation. Overall based on comparison with other security plugins is 5*

a must have.

Wordfence is one of the default plugins we install on every wp website we do.

Excellent - install it sooner rather later
By , for WP 4.3.1

Wish I had installed Wordfence plugin earlier. That would have saved SO much time and hassle. After my website got hacked, I found Wordfence plugin was a huge help in the tedious task of recovering. Also excellent for helping me to monitor my site ever since. BIG thanks to Wordfence!

Thank you so much. My website was defaced. I restored it but still it had many problems in it. Then I tried wordfence and it listed all flaws. My site is now fully secure. Thanks a lot.
