How to Install and Setup Wordfence Security in WordPress
We only recommend products that we use ourselves (Sucuri is one of them). A lot of WordPress companies have an affiliate / referral program. As a WordPress publisher, we use those referral links instead of naked regular links, so we can avoid having to sell ads on the website with tons of tracking scripts. The revenue earned allows us to continue providing free WordPress resources for the community.
How to Set up Wordfence Security Plugin in WordPress
There are many ways you can keep your website protected and they all require a security plugin. Wordfence Security’s rise to the most popular security plugin was no accident. This plugin can protect your website from a wide array of cyber attacks. Specifically, it protects against hackers, DDoS, and malware. This is accomplished in part by the web application firewall, which can easily track malicious traffic. Its database allows it to identify all of the common malware that invades websites.
Protect your websites with the best WordPress security available.
The Wordfence scanner checks core files, themes and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects and code injections. It also compares your files with what is in the WordPress.org repository, checking their integrity and reporting any changes to you. Repair files that have changed by overwriting them with a pristine, original version and easily delete any files that don’t belong. It also checks your site for known security vulnerabilities, abandoned and closed plugins. Content safety checks ensure that your files, posts and comments don’t contain dangerous URLs or suspicious content. Upgrading to Premium enables real-time malware signature updates, reputation checks and better control over scan timing and frequency.
