Swear By It
By , for WP 4.5.2

I have this installed on about a dozen sites, with half of them using the premium version. WordFence has caught or stopped a problem on each of those sites at least once. As a result, this has become one of my standard group of plugins on new sites.

One thing I like is that notifications can be sent to the site owner AND myself, leaving no questions about when & where problems happen. It gives me a quick and easy way to spot check the site for problems (scans & live traffic view) without having to do manual/visual checks on everything.

Recommend going with the Premium version to take advantage of all the options. Your site & your sanity is totally worth $5 a month. Discount pricing is available for multiple keys.

Support is quick & accommodating even when the questions are a little oddball. Had to contact them 3 times, never had to wait more than 24 hours. That's reliable.

Install this plugin first thing after you setup WP. Absolutely worth it.

WordFence provides a much needed line of defense

We were looking for a security plugin for our WordPress installation, and came across WordFence. The # of prior installations encouraged us to give it a try - and upon installing it, it only took about 30 minutes before we were convinced that we needed to buy a license. It's a GREAT plugin to improve the security of the WordPress site, without having to become a wizard in the guts of WordPress. Kudos to the WordFence developers for packing all the features that a typical site would want into a reasonably priced module!

Excellent Security plugin

Great to know that my site is up to date with protection and the e-mail notifications give a great peace of mind should an undesirable attempt to hack it.

Great Product

It works great.
Powerful, simple interface, offers a lot of bells and whistles for extra security.

I do have requests though

1. Could you allow verified crawlers for:

    Duck Duck Go

2. Escalating security such as:
If a human views 15 pages per minute then trottle
If the human has been throttled 3 times then block

Just keeps getting better

Absolutely fantastic plugin. Their free version is so good that I've considered purchasing their premium plugin service simply because it only seems fair.

This plugin has highlighted issues that have protected my site much better than other programs I have tried. Additionally customer service very responsive.
