I have been building a lot of WordPress sites in the last year and Wordfence is on my list for mandatory startup operations. I always recommend Wordfence to clients.
Wordfence has gone to ridiculous lengths to document the usage of their plugin - all in ENGLISH, not techie, so even a newbie can use it - and even further to keep the community on top of developments in WordPress and internet security.
Like, seriously, you guys, take a vacation. Okay?
The options screen is not just some fancy dialogue to make you feel better. My favourite feature? Blocking any login attempt that uses nonexistent user names. That and the ability to block a brute force attack on the first go round. This is key because none of the attacks to your site are malicious attacks against YOU. It's all just faceless algorithms.
There are a lot of IP blocking functions but, let's be honest, you won't keep up. Here's another tip. Turn on the "Block anyone trying to log in using username ADMIN" function. Because, seriously, you didn't keep your admin name, right? Right?
No kidding, Team Wordfence or no deal!
This is a great plugin! - I'm on the tip of upgrading to get even more features but the free version is standalone awesomeness!!
Update! I've moved to the premium version and it's brilliant! A huge thanks to the team at Wordfence!
This Plugin is AWESOME!!! It keeps my WordPress site safe and I LOVE it!!!
Awesome plugin, nothing more to say :)
Options to block IPs and block by country super helpful. Great help to keeping hackers out of the site.
I have used this on every website I have built! Love it! I love the security it sustains as well as the alerts it sends out when people try and hack your site! Highly recommend!
I have severel times switched from one language to the other in admin panel recently.
A I have now some warnings about modified core .php files.
It is not serious!
My firs install of wordfence.
Wordfence is protecting around 15 of my WP sites so far and already cleaned all the infected ones.
I don`t really see any advantage to go Premium, the free version is already perfect. But I wish I could buy a beer as a way of supporting devs for the great work.
I just love this plugin!
Every site should have this versatile plugin as standard.
Clean and simple to use.
