This is quite simply the best and most essential wordpress plugin. It is the first plugin I install on any new site. It provides unparalleled analysis of threats, it is intuitive with all information well presented.
A superb plugin. It blocks, protects and warns.
It's also seriously easy to use.
WordFence protects my blog against malicious logins. Gives me real time updates on security issues from my blog. Because my blog is non-commercial, I am not able to afford the premium version but I love the service they give me and grateful to the developers of this plugin.
Perfect. Saves a lot of pain.
Thanks to the developers :)
I would suggest to use this plugin to all WordPress users.
Simple to setup and to understand.
Thanks to the developers.
After months of using the free version I was more than happy with the protection on my main site. Now I have the premium version and it has helped me tremendously. The live view helped me pinpoint files that were suspiciously being viewed constantly. Certain countries were a big problem for me so I bought the premium version to block by country. Still tweaking the settings but so far I have eliminated 80% of issues.
If you really want to protect your site I recommend this plugin
I've used Wordfence across many sites, following a subtle and very clever site hack a few years back and have found it very useful. I suspect it occasionally pushes the RAM limit a little on my VPS, which hosts several low-traffic sites (all running Wordfence) but that is a small price to pay.
Being able to track small file changes (often the result of plugin authors just switching the version of WordPress that they've test against) is reassuring. Being able to track admin logins, block attempts at brute-force logins, etc. is also very welcome. Fabulous plugin. We'll be going pro this year to support this excellent plugin. Well done to the author.
I was using Ithemes Security for all my sites. But after upgrading all my sites to 4.2, over half of my sites no longer functioned. Had to disable plugin folders one by one til I determined it was Ithemes causing the issue.
Since switching to Wordfence I haven't had any issues to date. Installation and scanning was much easier than Ithemes.
My go to security plugin now.
I've installed it on all of my sites and it works great.
I was impressed enough to purchase the premium after search for AGES to find something as good or similar (you never find anything to cover everything)
I had some compatibility issues and within 24hrs they were there helping me go through it and looking right into it. The update patch seems to have fixed it anyway but the fact they were willing to jump right in and help was excellent!
Couldn't ask for more!
