in this post i’m going to show you how you can change your WordPress login page or url for a better security.

With over a Billion websites worldwide it might interest you to know that WordPress powers over 39% of it according to W3Techs.

This makes WordPress the most popular CMS (Content management system) in the world, and the most popular blogging platform.

with WordPress you can create almost any type of website and it comes with turns of plugins and themes which makes it even easier.

That being said, WordPress has become the number one target for hackers and attackers.

Why you should change WordPress Login page url

unfortunately all WordPress websites come with a default admin login page which is yourwebsite.com/wp-admin, which means anyone can just go to your website and access your admin login page by adding wp-admin to your site url.

well while that might not look like much of a problem but imaging if they can guest your credentials, what would happen ?

So changing your login url is the best thing to do, if you want to prevent that from happening.

Benefits of changing your admin login url

  1. more security
  2. it Hides WordPress Vulnerabilities
  3. it protects you against Brute Force Attacks
  4. it lets you rebrand the login page

How to hide/change your WordPress Wp admin login url

There are two ways in which you can change or hide your wordpress admin login url. First with a plugin and secondly without a plugin.

but in this post we are going to be using a plugin to do it.

How to change WordPress admin login page with a plugin

there are several plugins out there that can handle the task but for the sake of this tutorial we’ll be using WPS Hide Login, because its free and easy to configure.

How to install and configure WPS Hide Login

First of All login to your WordPress Dashboard and go to plugins

Go to add new and search for WPS Hide Login in the Search Box

WordPress Plugins
wps hide login

Now click install and activate the plugin

Now go to the plugins page locate the plugin WPS Hide Login and click on settings.

plugins

once you are on the settings page scroll down to the section where you will see WPS Hide Login

wps hide login settings page

now you will see two boxes the first one is where you’ll change the login url e.g from yourwebsite.com/wp-admin to yourwebsite.com/customurl while the second one is the url a user will be taken to if they try to access the default WordPress WP-Admin page.

just replace the url with your new custom url of your choice and click save.

thats all, you should now have a custom WordPress Admin login url.
