I understand that it is good to try and hide the plugins you have visible. This is because 'from time to time vulnerabilities are found in plugins and if your site is not updated in a timely fashion, outdated plugins and themes can be exploited'. So how do you do this to improve my site security?

Does this mean I don't need to worry about my plugin being visible? Both my sites are up to date as far as I know.

It seems so Yvonne as this was my concern. So you can ignore the message.

Thanks, Hugh. I just did a WA blog, and I mentioned you. It is regarding two of my websites. I am so thrilled.

Hugh, Abie & AJ guided you, with Site Support's help.

We have VERY tight security at WA and I do not find it necessary to have any additional layers for our plugins, etc.

Hope you got it sorted out.

There's also faq bottom of page to get more clarifications.

However, I believe WA hosting is secure enough thus not needing the extra plugin. I would check with site support to be certain.

Prevention is better than cure. Thanks very much Abie. Would this also hide the bridge theme?

Site Support says that there is no need for additional security layers. So I will disregard the SEO message in this instance. Thanks again
