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

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).

Where useful plugin
By ,

Wordfence is an extremely useful plugin. Specifically, because I run a WP MU network and is nearly impossible to keep the overview on all sites.

The only drawback is that it does not support IPv6 yet, thus only 4 stars.

Great Plugin - Almost Over Protective
By , for WP 4.1

This is a great plugin, I like the idea of sending emails to me instead of me having to go to the website to check all the time!

Pros
> Easy to use, Set it and forget it
> Very protective and Does the job well

Cons
- A bit over protective, sending emails when ever you even login and that kind of thing

All up its a great plugin that makes me feel safe d:)

Premium is worth the money
By , for WP 4.1

The free version is ok for very simple sites...

BUT if you run buddypress or sites with social networking elements that contain sensitive info I suggest upgrading... the premium features help secure your data

I just want to give it a 5 But,,,
By , for WP 4.1

The only feature this plugin missing is to change admin login, logout url.

Other than this, this is one of the best plugin.

I just replaced two Giant plugins [iThemes Security Pro & W3 Total Cache].

Hope I made the right decision.
