Wordfence Security is a free enterprise class security and performance plugin that makes your site up to 50 times faster and more secure.
I couldn't find any solid alternative(s).
I am undecided about the "double authentication" feature. Using Google Authenticator would be optimal
I can't say enough good about this plug-in! Spammers & hack attempts had taken away my joy in using WordPress until I discovered this one. I've installed it on a few of my sites and I love it. I wanted to test it first before trying the premium support version and I'll be upgrading to the premium because of the additional features. However, the free plug-in is great!!! Thank you so much to the developers!
Thanks for this great plugin! I'm new to self-hosting and knew that one of the first things I'd need to do was install security. Your was the first plugin I looked at, and I was impressed with the reviews and the number of actives it had. So I installed it and I've never had a bit of trouble from it! Even though I installed another security plugin (not realizing that Wordfence was doing the same thing), I couldn't figure out how to operate it as well, and Wordfence is easy to use for a "newbie" like me. Pretty much you install it and forget about it. It even emails you with an "issue" (the first time I was like OMG what's happening?!) when you have a plugin or theme that requires updating. Wonderful plugin, thank you very much!
Install and configure this immediately!
Thanks WordFence Team!
Worked great and easy to install, configure and run. Not a single problem found and now I know that I am a lot safer from hackers.
Reassuringly good. I can sleep soundly now.
I'm running the free version of Wordfence.
I answer a question on the WP forum and received a timely response.
Very good work. Please continu ;-)
