Wordfence to the rescue

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, Wordfence is a life-saver that prevents all unauthorized accesses and potential threats and keep your website safe.

Vorteile:

I'm developing websites using Wordpress for the past 14 years. Since the past couple of years, hack attempts have increased by many folds. Wordfence has been installed on dozens of my websites and it always has been a life-safe. Specially with the in-built firewall rules, Wordfence ensures that unauthorized access to your site is completed blocked. With more blacklisting and whitelisting options - it gives more control over to who can access and who cannot. The premium version has a powerful Web Application Firewall (WAF) that acts as the frontline of the website that blocks potential threats that comes to your website.

Nachteile:

The software can further improve. Particularly, a little bit more features added to it would make the plugin more irreplaceable. For example, file management security, database management security, more bruteforce relation hardening options (custom wp login url etc.) etc. can be added to increase more security.

The first plugin to get installed on every new site install

5,0 vor 2 Monaten

Kommentare: I recommend it since it offers peace of mind knowing the site has at least some protection. Even if it is the free version, I feel much better having it on there doing its thing.

Vorteile:

I love how the free version offers enough protection for simple sites. I like having the login alerts notify me when others log in to the site. The feature to add usernames to a blacklist that will automatically lock out the user when entered at login is great too. Another great feature is the Wordfence Central feature, which lets you connect your account to Wordfence, it will list all of your connected sites in a central dashboard on their site to make managing all of your sites so easy and fast. That is my favorite feature.

Nachteile:

I don't like how it has a notification icon next to the name in the dashboard menu for useless notifications. Especially when it is a notification for the ToS documents that appear every couple of weeks. That is really annoying to me but I'm the type of person that doesn't like extra notifications cluttering up my dashboard.

a bit complex

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: It was okay but I had some conflicts with the plugin and my hosting service.

Vorteile:

It offers some good features for site security. I liked that it allowed you to customize your security settings even with the free plugin. You can also have login notices emailed to you as well.

Nachteile:

I found the software dashboard to be a bit confusing. I also had an issue with scans. It seemed to be too heavy for my hosting service to handle.

No need to become a security expert yourself; just use Wordfence

5,0 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: Overall, Wordfence handles security so I can do other things instead. I'd rather work on marketing and website content, and my clients would rather pay me to do that too to grow their businesses.

Vorteile:

Wordfence is the first plugin I install on a site, instantly after installing WordPress. Wordfence has long been one of the top 2 or 3 WordPress security plugins when it comes to covering all bases to keep sites protected. Before Wordfence I spent hours trying to learn all the settings and best practices to protect a site, while trying to figure out which articles, classes, videos and webinars were legit and which were obsolete already or full of misinformation. Eventually I figured out that Wordfence automates all that. And their team is extremely diligent in adding to the product as new security risks and vulnerabilities emerge on the web, as well as working with individual plugin and theme developers to alert them of new issues and get them resolved. Now I don't have to try to be a security expert. The backbone of my website security strategy is Wordfence, plus a hosting company that is strong on server-side security - plus standard best practices like choosing complex passwords and managing a solid, redundant backup process. Something else I like a lot is the real-time email alerts from Wordfence when a new vulnerability is discovered with a WordPress plugin or theme or Wordpress itself - I can glance at the email to see if it's software I'm using on any of my sites, and if it is, follow Wordfence's instructions to update the software to a new version that contains a fix for that vulnerability.

Nachteile:

I have a few sites where the Wordfence firewall is only 85% installed. There's one more step to optimize the firewall. But when I try, it fails. For this step there are several hosting server settings to try if the first setting fails, and you have to wait a couple days after each try to see if it worked. I've started the process twice, then lost track. I wish it could detect my hosting server settings automatically instead of just saying it's taking its best guess. Now I have to start over once again to document it so that I can open a support ticket if all the options fail.

Excellent Free Model Tier for Small Businesses

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I am very happy with Wordfence, and many developers who make website from small sole traders and businesses use the Free Plan and have no complaints. You need to set it up from a check sheet from someone reputable so you have the best security.

Vorteile:

It had a very generous free tier which is important for a small business There was a lot of features that to be honest were worth paying for. I started to watch the weekly Video Call and I learnt a lot about security from those calls. I also did get the quiz right one week and I won some nice SWAG as it is referred to in the call I could switch off functions based on conflicts and general advice If there is a Critical Threath they will let you know even if you are on the free plan

Nachteile:

I had to wait 4 weeks before learning about any major threats as I was not a paid member There was talk about it bloating my wordpress site, but to be honest I could not prove that. I upgraded by Hosting and Caching plugins and it was nothing to be worried about. There is a learning curve and I did rely on online help is setting up the configuration initially, and I was unsure if that advice was credible. But it worked well for me.

Wordfence is the first plugin I install

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I love Wordfence. I want it to be cheaper, but I love it.

Vorteile:

We have large and small clients. Each client seems to have the same likelihood of being attacked as they have a WordPress website. Wordfence is on the forefront of security. They are constantly publishing reports on what the latest vulnerabilities are. They are protecting 1000s of sites from attack and it seems like they are getting better and better at blocking the attacks. We bundle the protection into our management fees as this makes the customer more protected than they would be without it.

Nachteile:

The price. It is very expensive. As an agency, it would be great to be able to buy in bulk and pass on the savings to the smaller clients we host. Even with the 25% discount when we buy more than 15 licenses, it is still expensive for the smaller clients.

Even the free version saves us headaches

5,0 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: We absolutely love this software for guarding our site, it has definitely alerted us to some dangers and activities we would not have other wise been aware of.

Vorteile:

We use the free version and I love the immediate reports of suspicious activity on the site. From the dashboard we can easily see where and wen we are most under attack.

Nachteile:

I really have no complaints, there's a purchase up option however the free option in and of itself is amazing.

Wordfence review

5,0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: I've been using this tool for about 4 months and find it to be very efficient. I highly recommend it for site security. You don't want to wake up on a good morning to discover that your website has crashed or been pirated. Give it a shot; you'll love it.

Vorteile:

I'm not endorsing this tool in any way; my review is simply based on my acknowledgments and experience with it. Excellent website security tool. This tool, similar to a firewall, adds an extra layer of security to help prevent malware attacks. It's a free tool that any website owner can install and use to protect their site's quality. . It includes a website hack recovery feature, which is extremely useful if you need to recover a hacked website. This tool keeps track of all the activities that take place on my website on a daily basis.- It sends email alerts to my inbox whenever it detects any unusual activity on my website. .This tool has a 4.7/5 stars rating on WordPress with thousands of installations.

Nachteile:

No cons. I just love how this tool works.

Website Protection Made Easy

4,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: My overall experience was good and I'll recommend it to most WordPress users as it provides an extra line of protection to your WordPress site.

Vorteile:

WordPress sites have always been known to be vulnerable to cyber-attacks. That's one big problem that Wordfence solves to a certain extent. It helps fix vulnerabilities in your site and plugins so that it stays healthy and safe.

Nachteile:

The only thing which I hate about Wordfence is that it tends to mess up with some plugins and cause them to malfunction.
