WordPress itself is a very secure platform. However, it helps to add some extra security and firewall to your site by using a security plugin that enforces a lot of good security practices. The All In One WordPress Security plugin will take your website security to a whole new level. This plugin is designed and written by experts and is easy to use and understand. It reduces security risk by checking for vulnerabilities, and by implementing and enforcing the latest recommended WordPress security practices and techniques.




Security Points Score System

In the dashboard page, you will find a security strength meter gauge. The purpose of this gauge is to keep you informed of how secure your site is based on how many of the available security features you have applied to your site.

This is done using our security points system which will calculate your current security score out of a maximum achievable total score based on which features you have activated or applied.


This security information is from WordPress.org
