Website security at Wealthy Affiliate
Often times folks here at WA ask about website security or how well our sites are protected at WA. Many of us install different plugins such as, Lockdown WP admin etc. As you probably know, by installing this plugin you can change your website nameofyourwebsite.com/wp-admin URL to something like nameofyourwebsite.com/mysafeaccess or any other URL, thus making access to your site harder. Since I am going to launch my site soon I decided to ask from Carson if he recommends me to install that plugin and here is the reply I received from him:
I absolutely think you should forget about this plugin. It will not protect you in anyway - this kind of plugin is a gimmick at best.
Use a secure password like the ones that we provided when you created your website. We have all kinds of security that we have in place to help you stay free from a brute force attack on your password.
