Protect Your Admin

Descrizione

If you run a WordPress website, you should absolutely use “protect-wp-admin” to secure it against hackers.

Protect WP-Admin fixes a glaring security hole in the WordPress community: the well-known problem of the admin panel URL.
Everyone knows where the admin panel, and this includes hackers as well.

Protect WP-Admin helps solve this problem by allowing webmasters to customize their admin panel URL and blocking the default links.

After you setup Protect WP-Admin, webmasters will be able to change the “sitename.com/wp-admin” link into something like “sitename.com/custom-string”.
All queries for the classic “/wp-admin/” and “wp-login.php” files will be redirected to the homepage, while access to the WP backend will be allowed only for the custom URL.

The plugin also comes with some access filters, allowing webmasters to restrict guest and registered users access to wp-admin, just in case you want some of your editors to log in the classic way.

NOTE :Back up your database before beginning the activate plugin.
It is extremely important to back up your database before beginning the activate plugin. If, for some reason, you find it necessary to restore your database from these backups. Plugin will not work for IIS.

Recensioni

not to sure about this

I had been using a different plug in for this same purpose, but was getting warnings from wordfence that it was no longer being supported, so I switched to this plugin. After 2 weeks of using this, I have had 2 attempts to log in, meaning somehow, someone now knows my admin slug???? I NEVER had anyone ever get locked out of the old plugin, but now have had it happen twice. If this worked like it was supposed to, they would have never gotten to the login screen right? OR, someone now knows what my admin slug is to get to the login page. Funny that the IP address that showed on wordfence as being locked out was in India.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ADMIN PLUGIN

This is the most secured, reliable, and user-friendly admin plugin for WordPress. Don’t hesitate to buy this plugin as it produced much better than expected result. It will secure your website and give you a peace of mind against hackers and known wp-admin url. I am using the Pro version now on all my websites!

Well done guys! Keep it up!

GOOD

Très bon plugin
Facile à personnaliser, et très agrable.
Beau travail.
Je recommande.

En revanche, le plugin ne fonctionne pas avec le plugin “Loginstyle Admin Login Customizer & Styler”
Ne pas prendre le lien customiser, mais par défaut. Il redirige sur ERREUR 404.

EN :
Very good plugin
Easy to customize, and very pleasant.
Good work.
I recommend.

However, the plugin does not work with the plugin “Loginstyle Admin Login Customizer & Styler”
Do not take the customize link, but by default. It redirects on ERROR 404.
