WordPress Security is an issue for all WordPress users. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re a good person or whether or not your site has high volume or whether or not your site is controversial.
The point is that any site can get hacked at any time!
Don’t Use ‘admin’ as a login username
There are some simple things that you can do to minimize your chances of becoming a victim of a WordPress hack attack. For instance, never use the word “admin” for your login username on a WordPress website. Here’s a link to a video on this site on how to easily change the login username.
Always Update Your WordPress
Always make sure you update your WordPress website to the latest version. I have a video here on how to update to the latest version of WordPress. The video uses WordPress 3.4.1 but the method is exactly the same to update to later versions of WordPress like 3.5.2, for instance.
Use WordPress Security Plugins
Use some of the WordPress Security Plugins recommended in this infographic. For instance, Better WP Security is a great plugin to enhance your WordPress Security and I use it myself. Here are two more well-known, well-respected WordPress Security plugins that I use on my site Wordfence and Sucuri plugins.
