WordPress Security – Overview

Keep your WordPress sites secure and safe by following this simple advice:

1) Only use plugins that you need.  Each plugin is an added security risk. Some plugins are infected/contain malware. Be warned! Unzip the plugin on your computer first and review the files. We highly recommend you only use plugins that are listed at wordpress.org, or provided for a fee from well trusted software companies. Avoid rare free plugins. You get what you pay for.

2) Avoid using the user name, admin, on your administrator accounts.  Use a random name instead with at least one number in it.

3) Use strong passwords!!!  CatDog isn’t a strong password folks.

4) Keep your WordPress updated and your plugins as well.

Above all, MAKE BACKUPS!!!!
