Believe me, preventing WordPress login pages from hackers is really easy than recovering from them

As WordPress is the most popular CMS platform, it’s also the favourite target of hackers. It’s important to keep your WordPress login page secure against malicious intruders. To do this, you need to take a few proactive steps like using strong passwords, limiting access to your wp-login page, and enabling two-factor authentication. You should also keep an eye on user accounts and regularly update your plugins and themes. Doing these things can help you prevent hackers from accessing your WordPress login page and stealing confidential information.

Once your site is hacked, it can be a big mess. It can take hours and hours to fix. And if google boats found malicious code on the site, then your site can be blacklisted. Which is really, really, really bad for the SEO, and it can be a big hit. So preventing a wp-login page is always good practice for security.

Few tips to make your wp-login secure
