How WordFence Security Plugin makes WordPress Secure and its Review ?
Site security should be at the top of your priority list if you use WordPress. Because WordPress is the most popular CMS on the planet, it attracts a disproportionate number of hackers, bots, and bad actors who target WordPress sites. You don’t want viruses on your site, and you don’t want un-authorised visitors to get beyond your login screen. Many various solutions exist for keeping your site’s perimeter secure, but WordFence is one of the best, and in this WordFence review, we’ll show you what it can do for you so you can decide if it’s the perfect security option for your site.
Installing and Configuring the WordFence Security Plugin?
WordFence, like most WordPress security solutions, is a free plugin available on the WordPress.org plugin repository. You can always pay to the premium version for more features and support, but the free version of WordFence is quite capable and will be the subject of our review.
How to install Wordfence?
Install and activate it using Plugins – Add New in your WordPress dashboard, just like any other plugin. Once you’ve completed that step, you’ll see a new WordFence menu item in the left-hand sidebar. New users may find WordFence intimidating at first, but they’ve done an excellent job of making it simple to get started. There is a lot of information on the primary dashboard. However, it is straightforward and simple to comprehend. We’ll walk you through what it all means and prepare you for your first site scan. The dashboard provides a good summary of the current state of your site at the time of your most recent inspection. The top row has boxes with current protection percentages (based on WordFence features enabled). We’d like to point out that you’ll rarely see these at 100%. You must be a premium subscriber to have 100 percent protection in any metric. It’s important to understand that these percentages aren’t nearly as useful as the findings of a Notifications box scan. Alternatively, you can use the absolute values in the Firewall Summary box at the bottom. With all of this in mind, WordFence’s settings are highly configurable.
Run scan on wordfence?
However, we recommend that you start by running a scan using the default parameters. They’re powerful right out of the box, and the quick results will help you gain a sense of the plugin’s capabilities. It’s easy to scan your site with WordFence. In your WP admin area, navigate to WordFence – > Scan
Simply press the Start New Scan button to have the plugin begin doing the series of checks on your site. You’ll notice that some of them are only available to premium subscribers. Most, on the other hand, are receptive to free installs. When it’s finished, the Results Found tab will show you a long list of potential issues with the site. These are coded green/yellow/red and range in priority from low to high.
Examining the Findings of a WordFence Scan ?
If you have a major hazard, such as hidden malware or unknown files, press the Delete all Deletable Files button, and it will be removed automatically.
how to delete corrupted files ?

The rest is relatively self-explanatory, as WordFence explains each one.
