Change WordPress Login URL
Last modified: January 13, 2020
A well known hacking point within WordPress websites is the login URL. Many hackers just look for you login url and if that page returns a 404 error they just keep on going. There is a pretty easy solution to such an issue:
Changing the WordPress Login URL
The implementation is simple:
WPS Hide Login
A lightweight and very simple plugin will help you hide the login URL.
- Download the plugin
- Go to its settings (under settings tab)
- Choose another page name (the default is “login” but can be changed)
Before you log out and try it – open up another browser or the same one in incognito mode, go to the new login URL and see if it works. If not, try changing the page name you chose. Once everything works you can logout and keep on with your day.
