No matter how small your WordPress website, you need to make sure it is protected against hack attacks or you will end up having to deal with heart breaking situations. There are many advanced tactics you can use to keep hackers at bay. The problem is many webmasters don’t even take the basic steps. The Acunetix WP Security plugin can help. It is a free tool that scans your site for vulnerabilities and suggests ways you can address them.
The idea here is simple: this plugin does not make you a security guru nor fixes every single thing that is wrong with your server. But it does help you take the basic steps to protect your site from hack attacks. For instance, it helps you hide WordPress versions, remove useless files, address issues with your .htaccess, and more. It covers passwords, file permissions, database security, and other issues.
Acunetix WP Security can’t do miracles but it does give you an idea what you need to work on to improve your site’s security. This is a free plugin.
