Wordpress wordfence

There is an wordfence plugin on my WordPress based website.

you know, the purpose of wordfence plugin is firewall.

cloudflare site already makes this feature.

So do I need to use the wordfence plugin?

There’s nothing wrong with combining Cloudflare with one or more firewalls at the origin. That’s actually a good idea, because Cloudflare’s firewall depends on you creating rules that match the threats your sites face.

Your origin firewall logs, both at the server level such as an .htaccess solution, or at the WordPress level, like WordFence, would be a good source of information for you to start creating your Cloudflare firewall rules. As your rules become more fine-tuned, the number of events on your Wordfence firewall should decrease over time.
