How to change the WordPress login path? What benefits does it have for web security?
Hello, the default path to access the admin page on WordPress is usually https://hocwordpress.vn/wp-admin.
With this URL (path) structure, your website/blog is very vulnerable to attacks. Because anyone can use the username and password detection methods to login to the admin page.
For better security, you should change the path of the default administration page.
I would recommend the “WPS HIDE LOGIN” plugin. With over 900,000 installs on the WordPress plugin page, add simplicity and efficiency.
It is not a complete way to secure the website. The ways I guide in this article are only a small part to improve WordPress blog security.
1. Installation: you go to Plugins => select Add new then type the keyword “wps hide login”:
Go to settings => WPS Hide Login here there are 2 items
- Login URL: Replace the /wp-admin path with the desired URL. To increase security, you should choose easy-to-remember URLs that only you know.
- Redirect URL: Redirect when not this path. Specifically, the image above will redirect to the 404.php page, which is the current page when the web error is encountered.
