As a PHP specialist, securing a WordPress website should be a top priority. WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems in the world, but it is also one of the most targeted by hackers. Therefore, you need to take every necessary step to protect your website from potential security breaches. In this article, we will go through some of the essential steps you need to take to secure a WordPress website.

In order to secure a Wordpress website we recommend the following actions:

  • Keep WordPress Up to Date

One of the most important things you can do to secure your WordPress website is to keep it up to date. WordPress updates are released to fix bugs and vulnerabilities, so make sure you install them as soon as they become available. You can enable automatic updates, which will ensure your website is always running the latest version.

  • Use Strong Passwords

Passwords are the primary line of defense against unauthorized access to your website. You must ensure that all user accounts have strong passwords. A strong password should contain a mix of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Encourage users to use a password manager to create and store strong passwords.

  • Use Passwordless Authentication

Passwordless authentication is a method of user authentication that does not require the user to enter a password. Instead, it uses alternative means of verifying the user's identity, such as a one-time password (OTP), biometric factors (such as fingerprint, typing biometrics or face recognition), or a physical key (such as a USB key).
