WordPress sites can be an easy target for attacks because of plugin vulnerabilities, weak passwords and obsolete software. Why we recommend iThemes? This is because it gives you over 30+ ways to secure and protect your WordPress site.
Let me show you some important and Must-do-it ways
1) Use “Admin” as username
Sound familiar right? If you are still using “admin” as your WordPress login username, please change it now. This feature will improve the security of your WordPress installation by removing common user attributes that can be used to target your site.
Where to set: Security > Advance tab > Admin User
2) Change wp-login.php and wp-admin login area
Hides the login page (wp-login.php, wp-admin, admin and login) making it harder to find by automated attacks and making it easier for users unfamiliar with the WordPress platform.
Where to set: Security > Settings tab > Hide Login Area
3) Schedule Backups
One of the best ways to protect yourself from an attack is to have access to a database backup of your site. If something goes wrong, you can get your site back by restoring the database from a backup and replacing the files with fresh ones. Use the button below to create a backup of your database for this purpose. You can also schedule automated backups and download or delete previous backups.
Where to set: Security > Settings tab > Database Backups > Check the option of Enable Scheduled Database Backups
