    I wonder which security plugins do you guys use for your WordPress sites? I consider paid options, too, like e.g. Wordfence or Sucuri.

    Thanks in advance for your tips.

    The free version of wordfence is completely fine in most cases. I use it on most of my websites. What exactly do you want in a security plugin OP, maybe we can give better advice if you tell us more about your needs.

    all of my blogs are using wordfence, so far so good

    It's better to do backup often, there are no perfect plugins

    WordFence all the way, the options are simple to setup and also a good plugin for WordPress Security.
