7 Ways WP Force Field Protects Your Website
1) Automatically updates your WordPress version
Hackers find loopholes in outdated WordPress code - and use them to inject malicious code in your website.
By constantly using the latest WordPress version, you automatically get the latest security "patches" and hackers can't find outdated code to attack.
2) Alerts you of outdated themes and plugins and updates them
Outdated themes and plugins are a ticking time bomb waiting to explode in your site. Hackers constantly look for outdated code they can exploit.
By updating your plugins and themes, hackers can't use them to inject malicious code in your website.
3) Alerts you of inactive themes and plugins and updates them
Inactive plugins and themes can be insidious. We tend to not pay that much attention to them "because we don't use them."
BUT, they still exist in your website. If they get outdated, hackers can use them as back-doors to cause all kinds of trouble.
4) Automatically updates your plugins and themes, in the future
Even if your plugins and themes are updated now, they can easily get outdated after a few days.
WP Force Field keeps them updated forever, on complete autopilot.
5) Helps you secure your username and display name
The most usual username is "admin" and its derivatives. This makes it easy for hackers to guess it.
But, even if you use a hard-to-guess username, hackers can guess it through the publicly-visible "display name" (which is the same as the username by default). WP Force Field fixes this.
6) Stops hackers from finding your author info
Hackers are becoming sophisticated. Even if you hide your "author name", they can still look at something called "author permalinks" and find out the display names of all the authors of a WordPress website (or, the single author if there's only one). WP Force Field fixes this loophole.
7) Hides actual login page
Hackers will perform a "brute force" attack on your website's login page. For example: /wp-login.php or /wp-admin.
WP Force Field disables the "wp-admin" redirect to your login page. It also allows you to set a completely different directory, which you can use to login to your website safely. For example: domain.com/secret-login.
