Updating themes and plugins
It is important that the system is always up to date. Failure to update may cause security gaps that hackers can use to infect the system. Most of the systems, themes and plugins can be updated directly from their own management sections.
Use strong passwords
With a strong password, you effectively protect yourself against attackers. Therefore, it is important to choose a sufficiently strong password and maintain the data security of your own computer.
Criteria for a sufficiently strong password:
- At least sixteen (16) characters long
- Contains upper and lower case letters
- Contains numbers
- Contains special characters eg: .,->!?<@#
You should also choose a password that is not used in any other service.
