Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
For every WP installation we have, old and new.
Don't launch without it.
I couldn't find any solid alternative(s).
I am undecided about the "double authentication" feature. Using Google Authenticator would be optimal
I can't say enough good about this plug-in! Spammers & hack attempts had taken away my joy in using WordPress until I discovered this one. I've installed it on a few of my sites and I love it. I wanted to test it first before trying the premium support version and I'll be upgrading to the premium because of the additional features. However, the free plug-in is great!!! Thank you so much to the developers!
Thanks for this great plugin! I'm new to self-hosting and knew that one of the first things I'd need to do was install security. Your was the first plugin I looked at, and I was impressed with the reviews and the number of actives it had. So I installed it and I've never had a bit of trouble from it! Even though I installed another security plugin (not realizing that Wordfence was doing the same thing), I couldn't figure out how to operate it as well, and Wordfence is easy to use for a "newbie" like me. Pretty much you install it and forget about it. It even emails you with an "issue" (the first time I was like OMG what's happening?!) when you have a plugin or theme that requires updating. Wonderful plugin, thank you very much!
Install and configure this immediately!
Thanks WordFence Team!
Worked great and easy to install, configure and run. Not a single problem found and now I know that I am a lot safer from hackers.
Reassuringly good. I can sleep soundly now.
