Locking things down

Not everyone on the Internet is nice.

It’s a fact of modern life on the Internet: there are people who spend their time trying to break into, or hack, other people’s websites. Some do it just for the thrill, others to cause chaos, and some are simply after sensitive information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, and other personal information. Now, you’ll learn how to make your WordPress site more secure, with unique usernames, strong passwords, and more. You’ll also kick off automatic backups of all your WordPress files so you can restore your site if it ever does get hacked, or goes down for other reasons.
