If you run a WordPress website, you must be aware of its security. Here are four deadly steps to prevent your website from any unauthorised access or hackers:
1. Don’t choose the username “admin”:
The default username in wordpress is admin, and everyone knows that. Once your username is known, others are half logged in to your account. Choose a username which is easy to remember for you but hard to guess for others. And it is suggested that choose a username which is combination of letters, numbers and special characters.
2. Choose a tough password:
Simple passwords are easy to guess. And once your password is guessed, no one can save you. It is suggested that choose a tough password. Create it with a combination of letters, numbers and special characters. But also, the password should be easy to remember for you otherwise you may have trouble logging in.
3. Delete and update:
WordPress has a bad reputation for being insecure. But this happens only when you don’t update it. Keep updating every part of your website to its latest version and you can surely make it much more protected. Download and install the latest version of wordpress, themes, plugins and other parts.
4. Limit login attempts:
Install a plugin which limits the login attempts. Never allow anyone to enter wrong username or password more than three times. This way, you can demoralise the bad intensions of the hackers.
Follow these simple steps and you can take the security of your wordpress website to a higher level.
