Hide the back end

Hackers will use the standard URLs for easy access to your site!

The WordPress default is /wp-admin at the end of your domain name.

If we change this to something else it’s another roadblock for the hackers to work around.

So let’s do it!

  • Go to Security > Settings
  • Click Advanced

  • Click Hide the Backend
  • As the suggestion of ‘_wplogin’ is also an easy one for Hackers – change the slug to something else unique and memorable (remember you need to know what this is to get into your websites admin!!) I usually leave the _wplogin and put another word in front of it like border-style: solid;.
