Three Plugins to Prevent Hackers’ Attacks
Download and install these three plugins to your WordPress blog to reduce risk of intrusion and hacking. No one wants to allow others to access his/her WP blog, but unluckily it occurs every single day. Users delete their websites every day, take over or deface them and the owners are left helpless as they do not have any way to get them back. But fortunately, with the advancement in technology, there are a number of login security plugins that protect your website from hacking.
Here are three plugins that I have found the best and are useful in securing your WordPress blog from hackers.
- Login Lockdown Plugin
- HTTPS for WP plugin
- WordPress Security Plugin
Login Lockdown Plugin
This is the simplest form of plugins that is capable of blocking access to WP blogs if any person enters incorrect password many times. Hackers normally access blogs by entering passwords many times and keep on trying until they are successful. Therefore, Login Lockdown plugin blocks access after a specified number of failed passwords. It is a simple, easy plugin that is definitely worth your investment.
HTTPS for WP plugin
Another plugin that prevents hackers to access your WordPress account is HTTPS for WP. If you are not familiar with SSL or HTTPS then it means that encrypting everything which is sent to and from the WP site, involving the username with passwords to login. Usually, your username and password is shown out from the open which means that you want to use any type of public wireless connection then you need to know that it will install a simple plugin and stores the password you enter into the WP blog. So, it is recommended to avoid using such unsecured WiFi or download HTTPS plugin that require you to start HTTPS while logging into the WP dashboard, thus preventing the password from hackers or prying eyes.
WordPress Security Plugin
It is one of the best plugins to protect your WordPress blog from hackers. It scans all folders for all types of security vulnerabilities and even try to point out weak point, out of dated plugins, holes and provides easy guidelines to follow in order to make your blog secure, efficient and result oriented.
Of course, there is no 100 percent guarantee that your WP blog will become hack proof, but they will surely minimize risk of hacking and make your blog as safe as possible.
