I have been using this plugin for 2 weeks now and it works very well. It is very easy to use and setup. The option page is written in plain language, no need to know much about computers. Thank you Wordfence team for a great product!

Received a timely and detailed WordPress security alert
By , for WP 3.9.2

I received from Wordfence a timely WordPress security alert about a plugin vulnerability on my site, what the vulnerability could result in, if not fixed, and exactly what to do to protect the website against the vulnerability.

Great plugin
By , for WP 3.9.2

I've been evaluating this plugin on a few sites for a while now and it looks very good. I like the paid options, such as geo-blocking, which I think would be essential for critical sites and the cost appears affordable.

The free version provides exceptional features, particularly the ability to limit access and track IPs which are attempting automated hacking. I appreciate the email advisories which alert me to plugin vulnerabilities and the plugins auto-update feature. We're testing the Falcon Engine based caching to improve performance. At this stage, no problems have been found while using the plugin.

Came recommended

A developer that I know recommended the WordFence plugin, and I am impressed--updates when there is a suspicious event and alerts when I log in both give me peace of mind. Love it.

Top notch security
By , for WP 3.9.2

Lots of options but easy to configure. Wordfence recently help me detect and stop a brute force attack on my site. They really keep up on WordPress vulnerability and update often to protect you, even when plugin authors don't.

A small issue on shared servers: pay attention to your memory usage, especially if you run multiple sites. On one host I had to turn live traffic off and set the memory limit Wordfence down to 30 megs.
