You can easily prevent your WordPress website from getting hacked. Follow this video step by step till the very end, and I’ll show you exactly: How to setup site scanning, how to set up Two Factor Authentication, how to make sure that no one can brute force your website, how to disable the cursed XML RPC module, and of course how to hide your /wp-admin/ login. Make sure to really invest this time once, so your website is fully secured and you don’t have to worry again about hackers, ever again. So let’s dive in right now. The very first thing we do, is we going to get the plug-in we need to secure our WordPress website once and for all. Go to

and press enter, or just click on this link up here and it will take you to the comment section go to the link etc. It’s a free plugin, but if you decide to go to buy the pro version, I get a small commission for it, so thank you very much. Press enter. And now we are at the Solid Security website. You can buy a pro version which is $99 a year, but in this tutorial I’m going to show you the free version, which works absolutely amazing. So press on ‘Basic’ up here and it’s free forever. Press ‘Get Solid Security Basic’ and then we are at the WordPress depository, so we just press on this download button up here. Great, here we go. Then go to your WordPress website and log into it. And then we go to ‘Plugins’ ‘Add new’ over there. Press on ‘upload plugin’ select the plugin we’ve just downloaded and press ‘Install now’. And then we press ‘Activate plugin’ to secure your WordPress website. And here you go, Solid Security Basic has been activated. All right let’s go to the settings in here. Click on settings. Welcome to the wizard, the first step is to determine what kind of website do you have? Do you have an e-commerce website? A nonprofit? Blog? Portfolio or brochure for example. Most websites are a blog or a brochure –
simple website to promote your business. So I’m going with the brochure website. Then yes, we want to enable Security Check Pro – it’s free, don’t worry. Press next. Are you configuring this for yourself or for your client? This is my own website, so click on this one. On this step we choose yes, we want to enforce password policy so weak passwords or leaked passwords or hacked passwords are not allowed to use anymore in your WordPress website. Very important.
Press next. Next step is to authorize your own IP address from your home or your office or where you are right now. Click on ‘Authorize my IP address’ over there. And then you have one IP address from yourself you’re working on right now, that should not be locked out by Solid Security when you do something wrong. Then the IP detection is great, keep it like this and press next. Then we have login security, yes we want to enable Two Factor Authentication by using another device. Just enable this one, we’re going to set it up later on in this video. Press ‘next’. Then we are at the user groups. If it’s just you on your website, click on ‘Default user group’. But if you have a team and you created different kind of roles for other people, use ‘Custom user groups’. We’re going to click on ‘Default user groups’. In this step we can determine what user group permissions they have within Solid Security. For example the administrators, that’s you and me, we’ve logged in, we can change anything. They can manage Solid Security, that’s fine….
