Best wordpress security plugin. Get it. Nothing more to say.

Effective and easy to use WordPress security
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is the first plugin I install on all WordPress sites I manage. Provides excellent protection out of the box, and can be tweaked to meet specific site needs. Support - even for the free version - is excellent.

The most useful plugin of them all

Amazing plugin, the best!

Professional Tool
By , for WP 4.2.2

I was really impressed with WordFence on a site I help maintain. It immediately discovered a malwaree payload in nav-menu.php and with the tools WordFence provides I could study the differences in the file and see right away that the changes were not made by our developers and I could revert the file to the original.

I am installing it on all the sites I maintain now!

Really exceptional plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

I sleep better at night knowing my site, and my client sites, have this plugin. I have no doubt, after seeing how many attempts are blocked daily, that it has saved more than one site I oversee from being hacked. Need I say more?

Well, maybe. It is set up well enough default that you could just activate it and have an extra measure of security,but I like the ability to configure options and decide when you do or do not want to be alerted. I like the scanning and how you can instantly compare changed files. There is a lot to like about this plugin.

If I was going to make it even better, I'd say it would be nice if they had a login address masking function. But that would just be icing on the cake.

Many Options

Excellent set of live security scanning. Wonderful tool, and premium features are appealing, yet not restrictive. Such awesome work, thanks!

For cleaning compomised sites this plugin is a must!

Both maldet and clamav did not find threats. Wordfence cleaned my site in no time. It is simply priceless!

Worth it for the peace of mind it brings.

Does it all.

Great plugin

This plugin is really useful and works great. The features of the free version are impressive. I have already spotted a few hacking attempts and so I was able to protect my site.
In fact it's a must for all WP installations!
