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.
With Wordfence Premium you get access to our Premium support. We aim to respond to all tickets within 24 hours during business hours. Our Premium support staff all have a technical background and work closely with Wordfence developers to ensure issues are resolved promptly and accurately.
