How does Hide My WP Ghost compare to Wordfence? Can they be used together?

Hide My WP Ghost adds an extra layer of security to what Wordfence does and they are compatible.

Hide My WP Ghost is not meant to replace Wordfence but to add extra security.

We don’t intend to replace the other security plugins out there. Our purpose is to add an extra layer of protection (not available in the others), in order to prevent hacking attempts. Hide My WP Ghost will complement Wordfence by offering an extra layer of protection that the other doesn’t offer.

With Hide My WP Ghost you prevent attacks from happening, by hiding vulnerabilities in themes, WP core and plugins. Hackers and hacker bots can’t attack what they can’t find.

It does a bit more, as you will see on the Features list >>

This offers an extra layer of protection that you don’t get from other plugins, because those focus on helping you while you are attacked and after you were attacked, by cleaning files, detecting malware, injections etc.

With Hide My WP Ghost you can avoid getting injections in the first place.

Hide My WP Ghost and Wordfence can be used together for increased protection, as they complement each other.
