As users of the web, we have to be careful with security and make sure hackers do not get into our bank accounts, emails, and our websites/blogs. Here, I outline some simple things that you can do to make sure your WordPress blog/website isn’t the next one that gets hacked.
Don’t use a simple, short password!
This is probably one of the most simplest things you can do to make sure your blog is safe. Using a combination of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols is going to make your password harder to crack – and the more, the merrier! I would recommend using a password no shorter than 8 characters long, and try to make it as long as possible. Most websites allow long passwords, so don’t be shy!
