Want to know the easiest way to keep your WordPress website secure?

Keep the core software and any plugins you use up to date.

Because the WordPress software is free, open source, and popular – it currently powers over 40% of all active websites (w3tech.com, August 2022) – it is unfortunately, a target for hackers.

And the best way to keep the software up to date?

Schedule a weekly login to the back end of your website to complete any updates. They’ll be clearly signposted in the WordPress dashboard.

When everything is running the latest version, remember to take a back-up of the site for insurance purposes – you never know when you’ll need it!

And if you don’t fancy doing this yourself, why not get someone else to do it for you?

Someone like me, who gets a sense of satisfaction knowing that a website’s infrastructure is up to date. Weird, I know!
