Just Excellent....
By , for WP 4.5

Very good indeed, great plugin that everyone should use...

My site was comprehensively hacked. All manner of nasty stuff turned me into a spammer, a host for odd(Not just porn) files, and other stuff that I don't understand
I had to re-build it from bare metal
Having learnt my lesson, I now use Wordfence

.....it does an outstanding job!

My site is still attacked about every 20 seconds as these a***holes look for the malware that they think is still there. WordFence keeps the site clean

Just in case anyone reads this from development, the constant attacks are looking for

where everything after the "?" changes on each attack

The key point is tucok3.php, which is some sort of script that allows the b****stards to do what they like with my site

It's taken me 3 months to recreate my site, I wish I had put in WordFence before

get it!

Update - since I posted this review the number of attacks has quadrupled. They aren't getting through
Tucok3 is evil
Watch out for Tucok3
Tucok3 is something you should protect against

Update 2
Since I posted the last update, the attacks are now coming in at one every 4 seconds
Webmasters Tucok3.php is evil
Google please find this post
Idiot hackers - my website is only visited 3 - 5 times a day by real buyers. Your attempt by searching for Tucok3 is having no effect
Every time you attack me , I learn more about you
Bring it on Tucok3
Google have you got it that this thread is about telling the world about Tucok3 yet?

Excellent Plugin & Support
By , for WP 4.5

This plugin is perfect for any site.

A scheduled wordfence scan alerted me that my IP address/domain (on a shared server) was blacklisted, as possibly hacked and sending spam!

Tim from Wordfence answered my ticket and pointed out that ANOTHER domain (unrelated to my own) on my Host site was the one responsible.

I contacted my host and they are taking actions and removing the blacklist.

Without the wordfence plugin and support I would have been in the dark, losing traffic and rankings!

Thanks again, Tim

Love it.

Searched all around for a security plugin, but nothing has yet to compare with wordfence. I highly recommend it.

I've only been able to afford the free version but for years now, it's the security plugin to rely on.

Wordfence just resolved an issue for me within hours of posting the issue.
Wordfence definitely has your WordPress site covered.


As close to bullet proof as you can get

I could probably tell you how many attacks have been thwarted by WordPress, but I'm sure I'd be underestimating. Wordfence is more than a plugin -- it's an outstanding company obviously dedicated to protecting WordPress installations of all sizes and uses. While I only use the free license for my personal blog, I'm leaning towards purchasing the premium license. If nothing else, to ensure that this company remains vibrant and continues to engage with the security community as much as they already have.

The recent firewall installation and their proposed architecture for maintaining it add an additional layer of protection to an already robust plugin. I don't think you're going to find a better security plugin with a better company behind it as you'll find with Wordfence.

Wordfence is amazing. This is a big effort and all the moving parts work well together. The new firewall appears to be a big time saver. The free version of Wordfence is great but the pay version will set you and your client's minds free.

From Brilliant to Good
By , for WP 4.5

The latest update changed a few options and, in my mind, this plugin went from being brilliant to good. However, whenever compared to other products of this kind, it is way better hence the 5 star rating.

Apologies in advance for the negativity as I am sure you all work hard on creating the best security plugin.
