With the passage of time WordPress became very powerful and most famous content management system and is currently being used by many web developers including newbies and oldies. Some say it is not much secure and hackers can easily damage the web site running on WordPress. Well, to some extent it is correct but not all the times. There are many security plugins and tweaks available on the internet to prevent the hacking of wordpress web site.
I am sharing my own personal collection of the just only 2 plugins they are “Must have security plugins for WordPress”.
If you just installed the wordpress and going to develop web site on it or if your web site is old and already hacked in past and is still target of the hackers. Then you should install Wordfence WordPress plugin without wasting a minute. Just install and active plugin, then activate Firewall. That is all you do not need to do much, Wordfence will take care of it all:
