Here are some tips to secure your WordPress website.
Keep WordPress Up To Date
At the top of your dashboard you will see a message that your WordPress update is available. This is for you to be aware that some useful new functionality and a security fixed has been released.
Keep Plugins/Themes Up To Date
Updating plugins and themes also required regular maintenance. This is to secure your blog or website from security vulnerabilities or performance issues. And install plugins/themes only from the trusted sources. You can proceed to check the plugins by opening Plugins > Installed Plugins > Update Available and checking through the list to find out more about the update.
Use Strong Passwords
The most common combination for passwords are like 123456 and abcdef is not a good idea.
Make a combination with using numbers, letters or even symbols like #, @, !, %.
Here are best practices to consider when it comes to password combination
* contain both letters and numbers, and special characters
* include one uppercase letter
* be at least 8 or more characters in length
We strongly recommend that you backup your database and WordPress files every week at a minimum.
