My Site is Safe and Secured 24/7

WordFence protects my blog against malicious logins. Gives me real time updates on security issues from my blog. Because my blog is non-commercial, I am not able to afford the premium version but I love the service they give me and grateful to the developers of this plugin.

its great – but complicated and not German

It should be a special Price of the Premium Version for private Use.

Very Good
By , for WP 4.2.4

I had the free version installed when my site was heavily attacked with rapid login attempts. I updated to the paid version and started blocking countries. The attacks stopped after five days. The only reason this is not a five star rating is that I really felt it would help to be able to change the login url - which would reduce attacks. Otherwise, an excellent tool - easy to use and install with some very sophisticated features.

Full featured
By , for WP 4.2.3

I have several paid licenses and recommend the plugin. It has lots of features that other security plugins don't match. On the down-side, support doesn't seem to exist (I emailed them several times over an issue and received no reply). Perhaps they didn't get my email?

Efficace et facile
By ,

Permet bien de se rendre compte de la nature et de la localisation des attaques. Facile d'utilisation.

Wowww.. thanks you I like this plugin all my website instaled

Overall very helpful when used with other plugins
By , for WP 4.1.1

I currently use the free WF on 3 websites and it is very helpful in terms of scanning, comparing files, notifying of needed plugin updates, blocking large IP address ranges as well as individual IPs, and showing you the live traffic on your site.

I recommend using it in coordination with the Simple History plugin so that you can actually see who has attempted brute force logins in the past week, and then use WF block those evil IP addresses. This is because WF's login traffic only shows successful logins, and doesn't go back in history very far.

I also found that other security plugins have valuable features that supplement WordFence, and so I use them too: BulletProof Security and Sucuri (free plugin).
