Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
Without the help of Wordfence scans, I wouldn't have been able to detect the injected content and injected files inserted by hackers. Thankfully, I could resurrect my site and see Goggle remove its 'This site may have been hacked' tag from my site's Google listing.
will not stop scanning, just sits there and scans no reports, no nothing, even though i know there is malware!!!! thank god i did not pay for it, its disappointing enough with it being free
I love this plugin and feel my site is secure just by using this.
Instructions and tour understandable and reassuring. Complete fast scans. Very well-executed
...but it make my web server crazy with your ajax "scan"
Please, correct it!
I installed this plug-in ages ago and never even paid attention to it. I never even went to the settings or anything...if I did, I don't even remember. So, tonight I clicked on it from my Dashboard by accident and find that it has stopped some major hacking from taking place and continues to do so constantly in real time. I was able to block some IP's that I'm certain were up to no good PLUS I was given excellent info as to where all of my traffic was coming from (and in much better detail than Google Analytics). I actually felt so guilty for ignoring it this whole time that I had to come here to give this review. Thanks for the great plug-in!!
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.
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!
For every WP installation we have, old and new.
Don't launch without it.
