A GUIDE TO WORDPRESS WEBSITE SECURITY

5 Tips to Secure Your WordPress Website

1.Limit Failed Login Attempts

Your WordPress login is the most commonly attacked
vulnerability because it provides the easiest access to
your website’s admin dashboard.

2.Use Strong Passwords

You should use a strong password for your WordPress admin dashboard.

Note:

A strong password is a minimum of 12 characters, using a combination of alphanumeric and ASCII characters.

3.Use Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds a very strong layer of security by requiring an extra code along with your WordPress admin username & password
in order to log in to your website.

4.Keep Your Software Updated

Using outdated software is actually the number one reason a WordPress website or blog gets hacked. Keeping your WordPress website up-to-date
should be at the top of your list of security checklist.

5.Backup Your Website

Unfortunately, your site can be hacked even if you follow the WordPress security best practices. If an
attacker successfully compromises your site, having a backup will allow you to restore your site to a clean
state.
