No doubt one of most common ways hackers will try and access your WordPress site is via the login page. On top of this, most WordPress usernames aren’t changed on installation and remain the default which is admin. If you change your username to something other than admin, and use a combination of lower and uppercase letters and numbers which exceed 10 digits, you’ll make it very difficult for a hacker to get into your site.
Hackers use automated programs to scan the internet for WordPress sites which end in a sub directory of wp-login.php, preceded by their unique domain. You can also install the Limit Login Attempts plugin which also helps protect your site from a hacker using a program to try combinations of passwords.


Caution: Its best practice to take a backup of your database before editing or making any changes in PhpMyAdmin.
Using a strong username and password combined with the Limit Login Attempts plugin is a big part of securing your WordPress blog from being hacked. Another way to protect your site from hackers is to install an all in one security plugin which also limits login attempts. Here are just a few examples of recent designs from the Keep Calm-o-Matic creative community.
Once you click on Change next to Password, it will give you option to change your password. Here type your New password and confirm password, then click Update to implement change.


The reason for this is that the address for most WordPress login pages ends in wp-login.php. Hackers know this and therefore focus on trying combinations of your password using software programs. Click through to see more designs, create your own, share designs and purchase customised products.
