Wordfence Care is for business owners who place a premium on their time. Our team installs, configures, optimizes, and maintains your WordPress site security.
After you have purchased Wordfence Care, you will receive a welcome email from our team with instructions on what to do next.
You will use our encrypted form to send us credentials to access your site so that our Customer Service Engineers can set up and configure the Wordfence plugin and connect your site to Wordfence Central. Once your site is configured, our Security Analysts will perform a security audit. After the security audit, we require you to change the passwords you have sent us.
Note: If you have purchased Wordfence Care because you need immediate Security Incident Response services, you can click the “Get Help” link at the top of the page. Find out about the Incident Response process here.
You are welcome to perform the initial setup and connection to Wordfence Central yourself if you are comfortable doing so, but please note that the Security Audit is mandatory.
The security audit service is a proactive 59-point inspection that covers all aspects of running a secure website. If our Security Analysts find evidence of an infection during an initial audit, they will resolve it via our Incident Response process. Once the audit is complete, we will send you a list of recommendations to help ensure your site’s security. You must follow our recommendations to continue receiving Incident Response services.
Your site will receive annual security audits for as long as you are a Wordfence Care customer.
You can request support by logging into wordfence.com and opening the LICENSES menu item. Then click on the GET HELP button next to your Care License.

Using a Wordfence license key on multiple sites
You can use a Wordfence Care license to provide Premium-level protection on staging or development sites of the corresponding production site. If you require incident response services on a staging or development site, or wish to have it audited, there is an additional charge of $199 USD per staging or development site.
Due to the risk of cross-contamination, we are unable to provide Incident Response services for your site if other sites are hosted in the same hosting account. You must either purchase the same service for all sites or delete or move sites that do not require service to another hosting account or server.
