Top 5 WordPress Website Security Tips

INTRODUCTION
  • Cyber-attacks are increasing by the day, as more
    and more people take to the internet.
  • Its for this reason why youll want to ensure
    that your WordPress website security is up to
    scratch.
  • WordPress is the most well-known content
    management system that is used on over 30 of all
    the websites on the internet today.

3
Use Two-Factor Authentication
  • If you implement two-factor authentication on
    your login page, you can almost guarantee the
    security of your site.
  • When you adopt this two-factor method, the user
    is required to provide two modes of
    authentication.
  • It could be a standard password, and a secret
    code or question. This helps by increasing the
    level of security, right at the login screen.

4
Update Your WordPress Site Regularly
  • Whenever WordPress comes out with a new release,
    it always comes with improved security measures.
    Lots of vulnerabilities and bugs are identified
    and repaired, with each new version.
  • Whenever end users identify a particular issue
    with WordPress, whether it be a fault or
    malicious bug, the development team will get to
    it, and release a new update that irons out these
    identified problems.

5
Use Login Limits
  • When you use login limits, you protect your site
    against brute force attacks, which typically
    work, by consistently making login attempts.
  • If you allow these hackers to try as many
    different password combinations as they want,
    then its only a matter of time, before they
    eventually guess right and gain full access to
    your website.

6
Change Your Password Regularly
  • One of the most effective ways to keep your
    website security is by constantly changing your
    password. Youll want to keep a note of your
    password strength so that hackers cannot easily
    guess it.
  • Consider using special characters, numbers and
    uppercase and lowercase letters. The stronger the
    password, the less likely it is, for someone to
    crack it.

7
Switch to HTTPS
  • There are so many different kinds of attacks that
    happen on the internet, such as those that
    involve intercepting sent data.
  • Often times, when this happens, neither the
    sender nor the receiver is aware that their data
    has been hijacked.
  • When you use HTTPS, you keep your traffic data
    secure by encrypting it, behind SSL certificates.
