Easy to install and use

Glad I decided on Wordfence after assessing it against iTheme Security. Ran my first scan -- super easy and informative. Gives me a sense of peace of mind on my WPMS Network.

I would go to 10 stars if it was available! Hard to believe this is gifted to us by this team. It is a perfect place to buy the premium for no other reason than to support the developers who offer these tools to us. I removed my cache plugin and fired this dude up. BOOM. Does everything it claims and feels like more. This is a must for anyone with a WordPress site, at least those of us who take care of our own stuff.

Good Plugin

stopped active attempt at hacking

Blocked multiple failed attempts at logging in. Found attempts while viewing live website activity and also, via email notifications. Quick way to repair modified files. Worth every dime. Nice features. A lot of effort put into making this plug-in. Sweet.

We installed Wordfence and have seen much better website performance. I are very satisfied with the security alerts that allow us to resolve threats.

This is an excellent plugin: essential and good support

This tool helped me to clean up a hacked website. It found all of the malicious files that were installed by the hacker(s), so I could delete them.

Also, on a website that is frequently attacked I was having issues with this error message (after being notified by Wordfence via email that 3 malicious files were installed by hackers):

Wordfence Live Activity: Scan Engine Error: Wordfence could not start a scan because the cron key does not match the saved key.

I found an open support request for that issue, which the Author had addressed very concisely and after turning off "WP Fastest Cache:" I killed the stalled scan and a new scan returned a report on those "malicious files" and I was able to delete them and run another scan that was clean.

Thank you so much! I really appreciate this plugin and intend to recommend that my client get the premium version.

Wow! Very more fast, right away

I just thought: "ok... try it".
I've see immediately how many my site is very now more more more fast...
Incredible. I thought that the slow depended on my hosting.
I've delete W3 total cache, and I'm very satisfied for this switch.
Well done!

I first heard about Wordfence on WP Watercooler

It was simple to install and is already paying for itself in blocking 'bad' traffic to my site

This plugin saved my bacon.

I really appreciate this amazing free plugin. Through the last barrage of virus threats (because of a hole in a different plugin), Wordfence both notified me before there was damage, and gave me every step I needed to take to clean my sites. Thanks!

Effective and easy to set up

Wordfence seems to do what I need quite well, though I don't use falcon engine since I haven't had enough time to test it with other plugins I use. It is also one of the few plugins that has not given me any trouble when updating!
