    Protect your username and password.

    Make sure you are accessing on a clean system with good and updated anti-virus and firewall protection.

    Change and update your password regularly maybe every 2 to 3 month.

    Make sure you are using a web hosting provider that takes security of their customers and servers serious.

    Check that the script you install on your website are secure and update as advised by the script developers.

    Protect your email address and it's password.

    Hello,

    unfortunately, there is no one-click solution. In order to minimize your risks your need to follow a list of good security practices :

    1. Configure securely your website
    2. Keep your PC secure
    3. Apply good security practices (ex.: password management)
    4. Audit your website regurlarly to make sure that there are no vulnerabilities.
    etc.

    good luck

    Use informenter or roboform every time you login to any of your accounts. Most hackers are using keyloggers especially on public computers.

    Hi:

    I have had success in using complicated passwords. Something like TtYl8t3r. This is a combination of caps, lower case letters, and numbers. In many cases you can even use Special characters like !,#, etc. These are hard to hack, but unfortunately also hard to remember. This method is not immune to keyloggers though.

    Put in a solid antivirus for hosting side.
    Backup daily so if something should happen you can recover fast

    Don't use 'admin' or 'Admin' as a username. There are bots trying to hack WP accounts with such login name/username.

    If you have a document with your passwords on it you can also copy and paste the PW from that document into the password field. Helps against keylogging since the only thing the key loggers will see is the copy/paste commands.

    Hello,

    Protect your username and password. change both terms regularly at least in a month.
    Install an anti spyware like Advanced System Protector and scan your system regularly. It will protect your system from any kind of malware threats.
    Don't visit poor rating websites. always use a licensed version of any kind of software.
