Simple Tips To Secure Your WordPress Blog/Website

With the growing hacking attempts, here goes some simple but useful tips to secure your WordPress blog /sites.

Use a completely random username with the administrative rights. If you are using admin as the username for the administrator login then you are just giving the main entrance key to the hacker.

Tip 2 : Use Strong Password

Make it complex. Use the combination of upper case & lowercase letters, numbers along with special characters. The weak passwords can be easily cracked by the “Brute Force” attack. Change your passwords often.  Don’t use simple passwords like password, 123456, 12345678, abc123, qwerty, etc.

Tip 3 : Plugin Management

Update all active plugins and delete all inactive ones.  Click on Plugins >> Installed Plugins and click on update automatically to update a particular plugin.  The updated versions of the plugins are just not bug free but they are also more secured.
