WordFence Security Plugin – Why It’s The Best
Dealing with WordPress hacks is really a huge hassle. I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with these tedious WordPress hacks a number of times during my web design career. There are a lot of security plugins for WordPress; it’s so hard to find the best one. There is one plugin that can drastically help protect your WordPress security though. Take it from me, it really is a security net for your WordPress site. If I was to populate a list of “must have” plugins this would most certainly have to be on the list. It’s really just that important. It’s name is “Wordfence”. This plugin is very powerful and I use it on all of my WordPress sites.
Okay, so first of all (and probably the best of all), this plugin is free. It of course has some premium or paid options but they are not entirely required to begin with, just added features if you find yourself satisfied with the plugin’s performance. Basically, as a security plugin, it works by scanning your site for viruses, malware, adware, trojans, and other suspicious links on regular intervals throughout the day. Yeah, other security plugins also do this, but what’s good about this plugin is that it’s lightweight. It’s as if you don’t have a security plugin installed. It doesn’t slow down the loading of your pages, or doesn’t even make you or your visitors feel as if something’s running in the background.
More than just a security plugin, WordFence Security plugin also shows you real-time traffic, from human and non-human alike, bots, spiders, logins and logouts – basically anything that hits your site. So, if you’re not getting information about these through your favorite analytics plugin, then this is a must have.
Wordfence does offer a number of different performance options. You can find these under Wordfence>performance setup. You can use caching so that the plugin doesn’t hog all your servers resources.
Don’t just take my word for it. Wordfence is an excellent security plugin for WordPress. This plugin gets excellent reviews on WordPress.org. I have found some interesting reviews on Wordfence that you can view:
I highly recommend the Wordfence security plugin. There are number of options that you can configure to your likings. The free version is worth it, and the paid version is worth the money. You have to play it safe with your WordPress sites. Every second, minute, hour, day, week, month, etc. that our websites are infected or down we are losing out on clients, visitors, and money. It’s easy to use, lightweight, and compatible with the latest versions of WordPress. This plugin has saved me an immense amount of time and headaches over the years.
