How to protect (secure) your WordPress Blog: 25 Passwords to avoid

Are you sure you have a password that effectively secures access to your blog?

Every day, thousands of blogs are easily hacked because of their easy to guess passwords. Some bloggers don't even bother to change the default ID that Fantastico automatically creates.

More than 76% of blogs we've worked at Still had admin for identifier. Some of our customers even went so far as to use their domain name as a password.

Unfortunately, the consequence of these different carelessness is the same: Piracy. Recently again, a list of the most used 500 passwords on LinkedIn has been published and logically, hundreds of blogs are hacked the next day.

Securing one's blog is not really the priority of the novice blogger ... and yet, he should take this step seriously.

  1. Hi Thierry,
    A wise reminder because very few people focus on these "details" when creating their blogs. But let's not forget that a small blog that does not interest many people at the beginning can become a leading blog in its market and arouse a lot of envy ...
