It's amazing that such a good plugin is free. I will recommend it to everyone who uses WP.
If you uninstall a plugin, it should remove entirely. Very bloated plugin, I do not recommend for shared hosting.
The best option I've found.
Love the Live Traffic feature. I can spot hacking attempts easily and then block their IP. Setting the block time to 24 hours means I have all day to check for them and then permanently block/blacklist them all at once. Scan is very informative, too.
Google results were giving my client's site "may be hacked" so I installed this plugin, ran the scans, fixed the files and hopefully we are on our way to reestablishing a clean site.
It helps protect my website, gives the security I need.
This is a very good scanner/security tool. The way it blocks malicious login attempts is great. Very configurable.
I was honestly a little irritated at first that I had to confirm I wanted to do a few things, but that just meant Wordfence was doing its job and keeping my WordPress site secure. There is MUCH to this plugin, even in the free version, and I'm grateful to have it. As my site in development is launched and traffic/visibility increase, I will definitely upgrade to the paid version.
I had a small problem with Twitter/Tumblr widgets not updating when the plugin was active. It was easily resolved by temporarily renaming the plugin directory (and not actually deactivating), updating widgets, then renaming again, but I asked on the WP Forum for a fix because it was an irritant (and I like everything to work!). The developer responded within 24 hours on a weekend. While my problem wasn't urgent, it's nice to know the developer is working weekends, when security issues often arrive, and takes business seriously.
I do like this plugin. I think it is great. But the plugin won't stop nagging you to upgrade for less than $5 a month! If you're gonna offer a free plugin, please offer it free without the constant "reminders."
Your customers know theres a free and premium version. If we want the premium version we would have already done so. All these nagging done is annoy us and makes me want to look for alternatives.
no malicious activity so far, so it works!
