By default, WordPress login page isn’t that much secure. If you want to access your word press admin page you just have to write your website name (URL) and then WP-admin.
Most of the People access their word press website same way. The hackers can also try to login into your word press admin account using the same way.
People who are familiar with word press they do change their word press login page URL. But what about new bloggers, who have just started new blogs? They work hard, they make their website but unfortunately, they get hacked.
Today here I will show you, how you can customize your word press admin login page. So for that, I will be using word press plugin to change word press admin login page URL.
As you can see I just wrote my website Name and WP-admin, I get word press admin login page to login. Not only me but anyone can write any word press website Name and then WP-admin.
After that, they will be seeing same admin page to Guess random username and passwords.Brute forcer could try same way to get into your admin account guessing your username and passwords.
I will really recommend you if you have word press website or thinking to have one. You should change your word press login page first. If you do not do that, you may get hacked.
I will be using word press plugin called WPS Hide Login to change admin page, there are many plugins who can do same work.
WPS Hide Login is most easy that I find to use. Let install WPS Hide Login into word press.
Login to your word press account, go to plugins and click on add new and then search for WPS Hide Login. You probably will be seeing the same interface as above in picture and then install WPS Hide Login.
Once you install the plugin just click on activate.
After installing the plugin, now it’s time to change some setting. Go to setting and general there you will be seeing the setting which we need to change.
Once you clicked on general scroll down, you will be seeing login URL as in the picture.
By default it is login. Write whatever you want to write. But you must remember the keyword for the next time. This Keyword will be required when you want to log in next time into your word press Account.
I will just write the TEST for demo purpose. you can write whatever you want. You must click on save changes if you don’t click your setting won’t save.
Now let’s log out from word press and then I will try to access my WP-admin account writing WP-Admin let’s what we get.
As we can see above in a picture I wrote my word press website name and then WP-Admin. I get the error message (This has been disabled). your one may look different, because you may be using the different theme.
Now let’s write TEST instead WP-Admin.
Next time I just type my word press website name and then test, we can see I get a login page. For demo purpose I chose test. You must choose a different name and a bit difficult.
Once you customized your admin page your word Press website is much secure. All the brute force attacker that they are using automatic bots to find default login pages and guess passwords are no longer able to find your login page.
I really recommend you people security should be the first priority to your website. No matter your website is fresh or old.
NOTE: I am so sorry that I hide my website URL, that was the personal reason.
