Wrap up of the new WordFence update:
Always keep your site protected and updated when it comes to security. WordFence has made this easy for you now.
You will see in real time how security is working on your site and their stats working for all of their customers and plugin users.
There is no longer IP Blocking except for premium users. We have used this on many WordPress sites and hope they bring it back for the free version, but for now, if you have a lot of attacks and spam trying to get into your site, then, of course, the Premium version would be worth it. Especially for sites that have comments enabled and social sites.
Wordfence has been a very good monitoring tool to keep your site secure and this is a dedicated team to securing sites as well as premium services to help you clean up a site if you have been hacked.
We once again recommend that you update and use Wordfence 7, especially with this new user-friendly interface dashboard!
