We've been using the Wordfence Security plugin on multiple sites for several months now and have grown to depend upon it. It has proven to be an excellent plugin.

Very helpful plugin!

Great job at reminding me to keep things updated as well as how often people are attempting to log into my dashboard. I feel much more protected since I began using this plugin.

Keep up the great work!

Very, very helpful...

The settings keep a lot of people from trying to log in and keep me alerted of the security threats via email. Invaluable program when used with BPS.

Incredible program

I think this is the MOST important plugin out of any other one. i had NO idea how many people are trying to hack all the dozens of WordPress sites until i installed and configured this free version of the plugin.

I recommend that you put into into every website using WordPress!

Peace of mind

I install this on all my sites now. Never realized just how many brute force attacks were happening.

Just brilliant

I had a problem with the site being hacked and got blacklisted as a malicious website.

I installed WordFence and it showed me all the problems and ideas on how to recover.

This is the best plugin I have used (and I have used quite a few!)

Thanks WordFence

THE complete package

I tried tonnes of other plugins like ones that sent an email every time there was a log in attempt. These, as you can imagine, caused more problems than they solved.

This offers so many options, it'll definitely help you sleep easier at night. Everything from hiding your version to locking out hackers after 5 attempts to checking if your wp-content files have been modified is really well done and unitrusive.

5* since despite a premium version being available, it's not pushed upon you all the time.

Most importantly though, it keeps the user in control.
