WordPress Security Basics Free Course
Most WordPress websites have been set up with the default settings that make your website a target to hackers. Learn the top three things you must do to protect your WordPress website today.
WordPress is the most popular website content management system (CMS) and over 25% of all websites in the world have been built using WordPress. Most hosting companies support WordPress directly in their control panel, and typically you can install the software with a single button click.
It’s likely that you or your web developer did exactly that to set it up.
Unfortunately, with the default settings in place, this leaves some serious security holes in place, and hackers know this. Chances are that you have the default settings on your site, and I absolutely guarantee that someone is trying to exploit this and get into your website right now.
In this short training module we’ll show you:
- How the default settings leave you exposed and easy to target
- How your login credentials can be exposed to the internet and even get indexed by Google
- The quick steps you need to protect yourself and make it harder for the bad guys to get in
If you have a WordPress website, this course is designed for you. If you’re not sure, find out here.
In this short video, you’ll learn how the typical default settings in WordPress expose your business to hacker attempts, and how your credentials are exposed and even indexed by Google. You’ll learn:
