When you are using WordPress there are always security concerns, And as WordPress is so popular and used by so number of people with all different plugins it has tons of security concerns. as we talk about web performance I do not prefer weak security plugins like WordFence. Instead of choosing to make small little tweaks, like my WordPress login URL. It is one of the easiest ways to crackdown on security breaches. See the free plugin below that I use to change my WordPress login URL.
How to Change WordPress Login URL
By default WordPress uses /wp-admin/ for your login URL. The problem with this is that bots, hackers, etc. all scan for these when looking for vulnerabilities and entry points into your site.
Follow below steps to install and configure the free plugin that will change your WordPress login URL to something unique. This solved 99% of all those attempts.
In your WordPress dashboard click into “Plugins” and “Add New.”
Search for “WPS Hide Login” and click on “Install Now.” You can also download WPS Hide Login from the WordPress repository. Best thing about this plugin is that it is super lightweight and doesn’t require modifications to your
.htaccess file. It simply intercepts page requests and rewrites them.
Click on “Activate Plugin.”
Under “Settings” click into “General.”
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see a new “Login URL” field. Input something creative that you can both remember and nobody will be able to guess. I like to have a little fun with mine. You can always bookmark the new login URL as well. Then press “Save Changes.”
The next time you login you will need to use your new login URL in your browser which you have change with this plugin as mention above but i have not shown url, You got what i want to show you.
