Title says it all, the best security plugin.
This has helped my site so many times from being hacked!! A MUST HAVE for any WordPress site!
Now a days internet is full of hackers trying to seed your server. This is an amazing tool to prevent that from happening to you. Comes with a lot of customizable features with the free version, and a few extra ones if you go for the paid one. Scans, firewall and even a performance booster.
One thing you must be aware of, do not delete "infected" files BEFORE doing a full backup of your site via FTP or Cpanel. Sometimes the infected file has been seeded and deleting it will not cause any problem. On the other hand, sometimes legit system files are corrupted and deleting them without replacing will have your site down.
both free version and premium are good. Found some malwares and malicious files inside my web directory files after my first scan, this plugin is very recommended! And most of all, they always give an updates regarding the plugins safety. thanks
Me gusta mucho, de hecho lo tengo instalado en muchos de los sites que administro, solo que algunos fallos en las ultimas versiones y la inclusión del cortafuegos no es algo que me encante precisamente.
I like this security plugin.
This review is long overdue. WordFence just works, and is very effective and thwarting future attacks by keeping proactively ahead. I switched over from "Better WP Security" (aka "iThemes Security") years ago after it kept taking down my websites. Go WordFence!
this is the only plugin O use for my security of wordpress site. I tried others but this free plugin does the work that so many paid plugins do
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.
An indispensable plugin!
