    Its been a while since I actually needed to be on the backend of one of my sites, updates have been auto applied, and i use an external management site, but I didn't know this, so making people aware just incase you didn't know too. But since version 6.2.1 Wordfence dropped caching support, and recommended using something else. I have a solution which I'll install, wp-rocket which is an awesome caching plugin for WordPress if you haven't used it.

    More can be read about why they decided to drop this.

    I had negative results using their caching anyway, so turned it off on all sites from the start.

    Yeah, i'm not one for using an all in one solution, like to use products for their strengths, Keep security seperate to caching. I personally use WP Rocket for caching, and love it.
