Since WordPress is the world’s most popular website/blogging platform, I am often confronted with the question of security. I use it for many of my projects. While WordPress has improved in this area over the years, it is still a big target to any nefarious actors out there looking to ruin your day. There are a number of steps I take on all of my (and my clients’) WordPress sites to avoid potential security problems. You can use these tips to help keep your site secure.
