Here Most of the bloggers are WordPress user. We know that WordPress is not 100% secure or hacking proof. But still, we do our best to keep our site safe from hackers.
I’m going to share a tip with all of you. Some of you may be thinking it’s simply silly but as I have noticed this thing. That’s why going to share with you.
START FROM HERE:
During the WordPress installation, we choose a username and a password. And as usually anyone will start to write contents and managing site with that username, which always has admin privilege.
If someone clicks on the author name in a single post, the slug which loads in the browser bar contains your admin username (most cases).
Now if someone tries to hack the password of the username or try to login with that username, he/she may be able to login to your WP Admin.
That’s why. Keep your admin and public show usernames different.
- Your admin username can only be known by you.
- Your public username will only contain editor privilege.
So, if someone hacks this username, he will not be able to access the WP Admin directly. He/she will need some more time to get the admin access.
I know it’s not a perfect solution, but in the meantime (very short), you can look on this.
Moral of the story: Keep your admin and editor usernames separate.
That’s all. Happy Blogging!
