The first thing you can do is to only connect to WordPress on a secure WiFi connection, only use trusted plugins, and keep your WordPress software up to date.
Connecting to an unsecure WiFi in the airport, at Starbuck’s, and other public areas offering free connection, means that anyone can see your username and password. So, when you connect via FTP or simply log into your WordPress dashboard anyone can see exactly what your username and password is.
The next thing you want to do is only use plugins that you trust. Are you aware that any WordPress plugin, if it so chooses, can have access to your entire WordPress site? All of your users, all of your content, most of the time, to every single file on your website.
That is the reason why it’s very important that you only use WordPress plugins that you trust. Don’t install more plugins just because they all seem like they have cool features. Plugins in WordPress generally have a rating, you want to go with the one that have rating of 3 1/2 or higher which usually means a lot of people are using and like them. It’s not a good idea to try a brand new plugin that no one has already used, it could be something that could damage your site or you may have given a hacker complete access to your files and your content.
Lastly, keeping WordPress software up top date is a very easy way to secure your WordPress blog. Because security holes are detected all the time, WordPress is very good at fixing those problems in the latest and greatest versions. So be sure you update your website/blog to the current version in order to safeguard against attacks.
WordPress make it very easy to update with just a click of a button, and you are ready to download and install the most recent version so you are now protected.
