Which plugins do you use to secure your WordPress website, and what are your essential steps to make it as less vulnerable as possible?
Thank you for the fast response! I didn't try the plugin before, I surely give it a try now, though. I also will try to build my first blog on this new account. To learn something new daily has no end.
Plugins themselves are the major factors in the security breach in WordPress so whichever plugins you are using make sure to update them timely, remove the plugins that are not in use, change your WordPress login URL, etc.
In my opinion the best way to be secure is to install only as many plugins as needed and only install plugins that are maintained because there are many old plugins out there which are a security risk. Additionally you can add a reCaptcha to your login form, to fight against brute force. But you will of course never reach 100% security and that's why I would not install 5 more plugins for security because every plugin can cause a security risk.
