How do I protect my site from malware with Cloudflare?

Cloudflare offers several options that can help you protect your site from being hacked or infected with malware. They are:

1. Cloudflare’s Basic Security Level is based on IP reputations and will challenge IPs that have shown problematic activity online recently. The Basic Security Level is a free feature offered to all customers, but it is not as robust as using the Web Application Firewall at stopping sophisticated attackers (the Basic Security Level only throws up a challenge/captcha page, which is largely only going to help with automated hacking attempts).

2. Cloudflare’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) will stop many hack attempts on your site. The Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a paid feature on Cloudflare, and site owners can adjust the WAF security level settings and rule sets in the WAF management console.


Still not finding what you need?

The Cloudflare team is here to help. 95% of questions can be answered using the search tool, but if you can’t find what you need, submit a support request.
