Secure WordPress w/ Security Plugins

I like to make my new WordPress blogs secure.

In addition to removing the admin Username (last post) I add two plugins.

I use Secure WordPress and WP Security Scan.

From your WordPress Dashboard:

Click -> Plugins

Click -> Add New
WordPress Search Plugins Keyword
Enter “Secure WordPress” to the search box.

Click -> Search Plugins

WordPress Install Plugins Secure WordPress

Click -> Install

Install Now Secure WordPress

Click -> Install Now

Installing Plugin Secure WordPress

Click -> Activate Plugin

WordPress-Installation Secure

Click -> Settings

I like to click the boxes on:

Error-Messages –
deactivates tooltip and error message at login of WordPress

Really Simple Discover –
Remove Really Simple Discovery link in wp_head of the frontend

Windows Live Writer –
Remove Windows Live Writer link in wp_head of the frontend

Click -> Save Changes

Excellent, Secure WordPress is now set up.

Next, let’s install WP Security Scan.

Click -> Plugins

Click -> Add New

Enter “WP Security Scan” into the Search field

Click -> Search Plugins

Install Plugin wp security scan

Click -> Install

Click -> Install Now

Click -> Activate Plugin

Excellent, that is all we have to do with the WP Security Scan. By just having it activated it is ready to go.

Now your WordPress blog is not as vulnerable as those who do not take these precautions.
