It really helped!
By , for WP 4.5.2

Google results were giving my client's site "may be hacked" so I installed this plugin, ran the scans, fixed the files and hopefully we are on our way to reestablishing a clean site.

Muy bueno aunque un poco pesado.
By , for WP 4.5.2

Me gusta mucho, de hecho lo tengo instalado en muchos de los sites que administro, solo que algunos fallos en las ultimas versiones y la inclusión del cortafuegos no es algo que me encante precisamente.

Issues with File Away plugin
By , for WP 4.5.2

Good but after uptating to WordPress 4.5 I have issues accessing the files on my web page through the File Away plugin. After deactivating Wordfence, everything works fine. Couldn't find any solution yet.

Good Plugin

Wordfence is a great addition to the site that does what it claims. My only issue is the lack of support on the basic version. Kind of difficult to make a buying decision when I can't get info.

Scan missed inserted image files in wp-admin/images folder
By , for WP 4.4.2

Looking forward to using this plugin. I had a pharma hack. I was able to find inserted "image" files that were not images in wp-admin/images, and was cued by the Wordfence scan which showed changes to wp-includes/default-constants.php and wp-includes/post-template.php. The image files, when viewed, showed injection text. The files were named strlistfile.gif, maplistfile.gif, include.png, tempthumbs.png, loginimage.png, iconscaches.png, graphicspack.png, previewpics.gif. They were all dated Feb. 10.

Please note that Wordfence did NOT identify the added image files in the scan!!!!!

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?
