Its awesome plugin and really helped me at stage 1 to detect something going wrong.

First in MUST HAVE category. Super, Robust, Well Developed.
By , for WP 4.5

After a website of my client got hacked (and he lost all of his business), I came to know about this plugin during research. After installing this on all of the wordpress websites we have created, we came to know how many hacking attempts happens on many of our popular websites. Now this is plugin is in the first set of plugins that we install for new websites.
Amazing product they have created. Even the free version has so many features. Many of our client fall in love with this plugin and have ended up buying pro version.

Outstanding Job

My site was comprehensively hacked. All manner of nasty stuff turned me into a spammer, a host for odd(Not just porn) files, and other stuff that I don't understand
I had to re-build it from bare metal
Having learnt my lesson, I now use Wordfence

.....it does an outstanding job!

My site is still attacked about every 20 seconds as these a***holes look for the malware that they think is still there. WordFence keeps the site clean

Just in case anyone reads this from development, the constant attacks are looking for
http://www.mysite.com/tucok3.php?e=8s5n0p9q84pn

where everything after the "?" changes on each attack

The key point is tucok3.php, which is some sort of script that allows the b****stards to do what they like with my site

It's taken me 3 months to recreate my site, I wish I had put in WordFence before

get it!

Update - since I posted this review the number of attacks has quadrupled. They aren't getting through
Tucok3 is evil
Watch out for Tucok3
Tucok3 is something you should protect against

Update 2
Since I posted the last update, the attacks are now coming in at one every 4 seconds
Webmasters Tucok3.php is evil
Google please find this post
Idiot hackers - my website is only visited 3 - 5 times a day by real buyers. Your attempt by searching for Tucok3 is having no effect
Every time you attack me , I learn more about you
Bring it on Tucok3
Google have you got it that this thread is about telling the world about Tucok3 yet?

Excellent Plugin & Support
By , for WP 4.5

This plugin is perfect for any site.

A scheduled wordfence scan alerted me that my IP address/domain (on a shared server) was blacklisted, as possibly hacked and sending spam!

Tim from Wordfence answered my ticket and pointed out that ANOTHER domain (unrelated to my own) on my Host site was the one responsible.

I contacted my host and they are taking actions and removing the blacklist.

Without the wordfence plugin and support I would have been in the dark, losing traffic and rankings!

Thanks again, Tim

Love it.

Searched all around for a security plugin, but nothing has yet to compare with wordfence. I highly recommend it.

Not only useful... Essential
By , for WP 4.4.2

Using it for a few months now : it changed my "webmaster" life.

Don't hesitate and install it !
