[Lesson 9] Secure WordPress Login Page And Admin Page

If you are serious about your website’s security, you must not ignore little details such as protecting your login and admin pages. Attacks on login pages of websites, for instance, the Brute force attack are not something unprecedented of.

In a brute force attack, bots are used to break into a website by trying a large number of combinations of usernames and passwords for that page at a really high speed.

What you should do?

To protect your login and admin pages, follow these steps:

Step 1 – Set strong unguessable passwords for your website. Further, always use a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters in a password.

Step 2 – Use Plugins to protect these pages. Plugins like ‘Limit Login Attempts’ prevent any brute forcing attempts. Another plugin we recommend using is ‘Protect Your Admin’. With this plugin, you can customize your admin page’s URL.

Lastly, learn how to configure these plugins to your website’s favor and improve security.
