Wordfence Premium

Wordfence Premium comes with real-time firewall protection, real-time scan signatures, an IP address blocklist, country blocking, and Premium support.

Real-time protection

With Wordfence Premium your firewall rules and scan malware signatures are updated in real-time, providing you with immediate protection against new threats and immediate detection of new malware and vulnerabilities.

Country blocking

Country blocking is a Premium feature that allows you to restrict access to your login page or the whole site from specific countries. You can read more about country blocking here.

Real-Time IP Blocklist

Users of both the free and Premium versions of Wordfence can choose to participate in the “Wordfence Security Network”. This allows us to track the malicious behavior of specific IP addresses on a large number of sites. When we detect that an IP address is behaving maliciously, it is automatically added to the Wordfence Real-Time IP Blocklist. The Real-Time IP Blocklist is a Premium feature of Wordfence that completely blocks access to your site from these IP addresses.

Note that users of the free version of Wordfence will only receive automatic blocking of IP addresses that have been engaged in brute force login attacks detected via the Wordfence Security Network. Premium users of the plugin will receive additional automatic blocking of IP addresses carrying out other complex attacks via the Real-Time IP Blocklist feature. You can read more about the Wordfence Security Network here.

  • What is an API-key?

    An API-key is a unique identifier that Wordfence uses to verify that your site is actually your site and not another site. The key is a code; a long row of jumbled digits and letters. When you install the free version of Wordfence you are automatically assigned a free API-key. When you upgrade to Wordfence premium, you get a premium key which you need to install in place of the free key.
