Securing a WordPress website

In recent years, cybercrime has been celebrating its heyday. The tricky thing about this form of crime is that cybercrime is quite diverse. As a consumer, you can be scammed via, for example, a fake link, but you can also lose your entire privacy through, for example, a hack. Just for the possible hack, it is advisable to secure your WordPress website properly.

A good security of your website is not only done for yourself. No, you also do this for all people who use your website. By ensuring a safe website, your visitors are able to surf your website safely and pleasantly. That is more than worth investing in a plugin, for example Wordfence.

Furthermore, security is also something that Google looks at. For example, does your website not have an SSL certificate? Then that is a red signal for Google. A signal that you do not have your website in order and that you should not come up too high in the ranking of the search engine.

With good security, you can protect your website perfectly against malicious parties. This protects you against bots, malware and hackers, among other things. That is certainly the case if you choose the Wordfence Security plugin. In our humble opinion, this is one of the best security plugins of the moment.
