Password security is a critical part of managing WordPress. With so many WordPress sites on the Internet, it is a prime target for hackers.
Hacking WordPress via brute force is not uncommon. Because of this, there are some recommended Best Practices to keep in mind when using WordPass:
- Change the list of words in the plugin’s settings from the default. The longer the words, the better as longer passwords are more secure.
- The longer the list, the better.
- Don’t let the word list become stale. Change the words in the list regularly.
- A two or three word password with random letter case, leetification, numbers, and special characters generated by WordPass Pro can be just as secure as a completely random password but a whole lot easier to remember!
- Depending on the length of the words in the word list, a four word password with no special characters or numbers will pass the WordPress strong password requirements.
