Don’t Let them Hack Your Blog

blog hacking_imageNow a day it is so important to protect your blog from being hacked into.

I recently attended a wordpress meeting and the hot topic was security.

So I wanted to share some 3 tips they had for protecting your blog for the hackers out there.

Tip #1 Don’t Use ADMIN

For most of use that use wordpress for the first time on our blog admin is the default. The problem is that it is the default for everyone that installs wordpress onto their site. So most of the time this is what hackers will use as the user name and then by brute force apply multiple attempts at your password.

So how do you change this? Well when you log into your back office there is a tab for users… add a new user and delete the admin.

Tip #2 Your Password

Create a strong password. Make sure that your password is at least 10 characters. Someone suggested writing a short phrase as opposed to just a password. But use what works for you.

Tip #3 Security Plugins

There are a couple of highly recommend security plugins that are free to install. There purpose is to lock out your site to those that attempt too many logins and more.

WordFence was a recommended security plugin

Better WP Security was a recommend security plugin

Check out both of them by going to wordpress.org and clicking on plugins.

Protecting your site is highly recommended. I hope that you got some value from this blog post.

Comment and share if you are using any other plugins to protect your blog.

Yours in Gratitude,
