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!

Thanks for this great plugin! I'm new to self-hosting and knew that one of the first things I'd need to do was install security. Your was the first plugin I looked at, and I was impressed with the reviews and the number of actives it had. So I installed it and I've never had a bit of trouble from it! Even though I installed another security plugin (not realizing that Wordfence was doing the same thing), I couldn't figure out how to operate it as well, and Wordfence is easy to use for a "newbie" like me. Pretty much you install it and forget about it. It even emails you with an "issue" (the first time I was like OMG what's happening?!) when you have a plugin or theme that requires updating. Wonderful plugin, thank you very much!

This is genius!!
