This is one amazing plug-in. It's a bit frightening to know that someone tried to sign into my site. Wordfence alerted me immediately.
This is my first review... Wordfence has been amazing to me. I bought the premium version for a few commercial sites I worked on and maintained. This plugin made my life a lot less stressful while also making me feel OK when I left things in other hands.
Watch exactly who is trying to access what on your site via the Live Traffic feed. Block a network if it consistently is causing your website grief. Add certain URL's to a blocking list of IP's if they attempt to access your site at a specified domain.
My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE part about this plugin is the ability to compare any file changes with a click of the button right within the dashboard. Immediately a screen will pop up (split in half) showing you, much like Github would, the difference between files. It makes things so much easier when determining if something is false-positive or not.
Would not ever want to not have the protection.
Wordfence makes most website security tasks a breeze. No more editing htaccess files for the most part.
Their caching system works great as well and does noticeably improve site speed.
Wordfence is a must use plugin for every WordPress website.
One of the most useful plugins you can find. Should be part of the default WordPress install.
This is so easy to install and accept the default settings. Later, you can configure/fine-tune it to increase security levels if you wish. A must have.
Don't think twice. Just install.
One of my sites was getting some increased visits, spam and login attempts. I was constantly battling against it all. Then I added this plugin (which I actually used on another site already) and it is doing an outstanding job of repelling all borders.
To repeat: Install this now.
I almost never review products, even those I love or hate. But Wordfence is so frakkin' awesome that I had to take the time. I only maintain a few WP sites, but it's the first thing I install. Highly recommended.
I may even pay for the Pro version, whether I need it or not. For a cheap-a** like myself, that's kind of Earth-shattering.
Keep up the great work!
Just cleaned out a multitude of websites It just works!
