Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
Alerts are helpful.
Wordfence has found active threats and compromises within and outside of WordPress installations. It provides peace of mind and ensures that updates are not ignored and that security threats are quickly identified and efficiently dispatched.
I never import a WordPress install or other web content without scanning it all with Wordfence.
For my money, this free plugin is an essential security plugin that every WordPress installation should include.
one of the most amazing Plugin is used so far....i am really impressed and its much better from all the plugin WordPress recommended by default.
I haven't been using it long, but I am very impressed with what I see. The free version gives me exactly what I need for now, but I know I will look into Wordfence first when I need more advanced (paid) features.
Amazing plugin, the best I have ever used for WP protection. Definitely a "must" for every WP site. I can't recommend it enough, thankfully it was recommended to me by my hosting company.
Even its free version has done wonders. Auto-blocks various IPs trying to login with brute force and you can manually block IPs which don't belong to humans and Google crawlers.
Truly a gem, thanks a lot developers!
Totally locked down my site, absolutely love it and upgraded today!
Fantastic plugin. Going on all my sites from now on. The Falcon caching is the best I've come across.
As a long time WP user, and someone who cares about best practices, I can't give WordFence enough stars.
Not only was it mostly straight forward to configure for my needs, the few things I wasn't sure about were easy to figure out thanks to the outstanding help links next to each option that took me to the help documentation online.
EVERY plug-in should have such good documentation!
As far as security goes, I've used this to block IPs that I discovered while viewing live stats - bots that were clearly attempting to hack the site. In real time! And the scan feature has helped me identify problems I wasn't aware even existed.
Truly important plugin...
I can relax now. Wordfence is protecting my stuff!
I'm primarily a designer mostly concerned with making my sites look good, and lite on the programming and code writing. I probably don't get everything out of this software that it's capable of delivering, but I'm convinced it's probably the best all-around plugin for securing a site and protecting it from all the spammers and scammers.
