Great plugin - a must have!

Wouldn't run WordPress without it

There are so many script-kiddies and bots out there exploring our sites for mistakes and vulnerabilities that having Wordfence protecting your site is not only a must for the integrity of your site but also for your sense of well-being. Beyond protecting your site the author of Wordfence keeps us informed of rapidly developing security threats and what to do about them. I love getting emails from my site letting me know that Wordfence is blocking someone because of their behavior (behavior that doesn't constitute the manner in which real visitors behave).

An absolute must for your WordPress installation

Awesome, Detail-oriented security plugin

They are constantly checking for potential threats on your site whether it be out of date plugins or changes made to various snippets of code. Sends email updates on a daily basis.

I feel much better about security with Wordfence.

Thank you to the WordFence plugin author(s). I appreciate the plugin but also subscribe to the newsletter, and both are very well done.

A must-have!

Simple, Effective, security
By , for WP 3.8.2

I've looked at a number of security plugins and eventually settled on Wordfence. It just works without being intrusive.

Great security but caching puts it over the top
By , for WP 3.8.1

The latest version added the 'Falcon' caching engine and that has helped site performance a LOT. I pay for premium Wordfence (it's well worth it) and the caching really puts it over the top.
