Strong Password: The password is like a key to your website. Never use any easy password that anyone can guess like 123456 or abcdef or even your name. You have to take maximum precautions while choosing the right password for your website. When you get the delivery of the website from the Remote WordPress Developer; you need to change the password as soon as possible.

2 Step Authentication: Two is always better than one. So, when you have the facility to add one extra layer of security on your website, then you should not delay. There are many plug-ins that provide phone verification or camera verification or email verification for the login process.

Eventually, that so good to be true plugin turns out to be a deadly malware that can hack the whole ecosystem of your website. To avoid any such drastic scenario, carefully download the plugin by reading the review and comments of the users.
