WordFence is good
By , for WP 4.0

I was impressed with wordfence at the start, I see new improvements when spam gets through, they are automatically blocked the IPs...but maybe in a future version of Wordfence

Love the practical functionality

I'm one of those WP users who knows enough to mess around with html but not enough to get myself out of trouble if I go places I don't belong in the back end of the sites I manage. Wordfence is a godsend. They keep an eye on things I don't understand. I like the way I get notices when my site is down and back up. I'm with HostMetro and it appears the site goes down for 10 minutes or sometimes longer almost weekly. I like that I get a notice when that happens so I can monitor it.

Wordfence also sends me notices if someone has sent out a pingback on Twitter with bad juju attached. It just found one that someone sent out making it look like it came from my blog, but they had attached a different URL to the tweet. It's great that I can perform a scan anytime I want to make sure my site is safe.

I like having this extra "fence" around my sites. I just don't have the time to keep an eye on all 4 sites and watch every nuance and hiccup. Thanks Wordfence developers!

Since Wordfence's WP roll out it has saved me from going nutts!
When you grow don't forget what Wordfence has protected you from.
To me they are the true spirit of WP.

So Helpful!

If it wasn't for Wordfence, I would have absolutely no idea about anything security-related. I've learned a lot from reading their blog posts and the email updates they send out. (I wish they would put out more of this type of information!)

The plugin itself works very well, is feature-rich, and is easy to use. The Falcon Engine is a huge bonus!!

I've only needed support once, and my issue was promptly resolved.

Thanks for everything, Wordfence team!
