A Must Have For WP sites
By ,

Clearly security is becoming a big issue for most of us.

This plugin is simply great and much more useful than the description reads. You can configure almost all aspects of your security requirements and even block users with multiple incorrect password attempts.

The Pro version is also worth considering if you need extra features like 2 part authentication.

If you have not tried this plugin, then simply download the free version and see how you get on prior to upgrading to PRO.

Poor support - Bad management
By ,

"Free" support is limited to extremely easy questions. Just look at the support queue and you will see that the "dedicated support" person answer very easy questions but ignores anything that requires a little grey matter.

WordFence is completely broken on one site and there is no indication that a paid license will fix the problem. I will not pay for support since that only encourages cripple-ware.

I also have to agree with the comments that express a belief that management cares only about increasing sales. I contacted pre-sales to ask about licensing. Fast response. I contacted pre-sales to inquire about pre-sales support. Crickets.

I will use the free product on sites on which it works.

I will never pay for a license for this product because the small benefit to the paid product is greatly overshadowed by complete lack of care for potential customers who have not made that leap.

Been using over a year. Reliable, frequently updates; and does what it's supposed to do.

Thanks.

Scans are hit or miss
By , for WP 4.0

I've been using this plugin for years, and sadly it's just not working well anymore. Scheduled scans almost never complete, and I've received little help in support to figure out why.

Simply the best!

I have been using Word fence now for two years on four different WP websites. It works, period! There is a learning curve to understand the settings and how to best utilize for your site, but so worth it to do so. After my first year of use with the free version, I bought the pro version to utilize country blocking. I have successfully eliminated all malicious attacks to my site. Great work guys. Every WP site should have this.

Saves me!

Been using it for couple years now and think it's the best of them all. It slices, it dices and it even updates itself!
