Pretty Amazing

I installed this plug-in ages ago and never even paid attention to it. I never even went to the settings or anything...if I did, I don't even remember. So, tonight I clicked on it from my Dashboard by accident and find that it has stopped some major hacking from taking place and continues to do so constantly in real time. I was able to block some IP's that I'm certain were up to no good PLUS I was given excellent info as to where all of my traffic was coming from (and in much better detail than Google Analytics). I actually felt so guilty for ignoring it this whole time that I had to come here to give this review. Thanks for the great plug-in!!

Fantastic plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

It's reported lots of attempted attacks and so far has seen them all off. More impressively, it identified some damage left by hackers in a couple of my older sites (which weren't being maintained, but still) which would have taken many, many hours to figure out (in the best scenario...). Thanks so much!

Easy to install and use - and problems found through the scans are easy to fix. When I switched to self-hosting, I read about this highly recommended plugin. After reading its great reviews I installed it immediately - it's great to know it's scanning in the background and will send an alert when there's a problem.

Great security plugin

Works very well as it doesn't slow down my site and gives me piece of mind. Only had one minor issue where it gave warnings that a plugin didn't match repository but was due to really new version of plugin. Wordfence corrected itself within an hour. Thanks to the developers!

The MUST have plugin!

For every WP installation we have, old and new.
Don't launch without it.

I am undecided about the "double authentication" feature. Using Google Authenticator would be optimal

Can't say enough good about this plug-in!

I can't say enough good about this plug-in! Spammers & hack attempts had taken away my joy in using WordPress until I discovered this one. I've installed it on a few of my sites and I love it. I wanted to test it first before trying the premium support version and I'll be upgrading to the premium because of the additional features. However, the free plug-in is great!!! Thank you so much to the developers!
