I faced lot of issues with my clients site. They many times came to me with saying “my site is hacked” data has been deleted or something like that.

For wordpress security and protection purpose you need to add some wordpress plugins in your wordpress blog so your blog will be never hacked by hackers.

I created list of wordpress plugins which are best for wordpress security and protection.

Exclusive Content Password Protect

Exclusive Content Password Protect is a plugin that allows you to hide a section (or multiple sections) of content on your page or post. Use this to create exclusive content that you only want email or RSS subscribers to have access to. Once they enter in the global password once, they will have access to all content from then on. Plus you can use passwords for certain sections to have even more exclusive content.

Password Protect WordPress

Password Protect WordPress plugin for WordPress is an easy to use plugin to restrict all access to your blog by the use of a single password.

No user accounts – just a single password. Easy to use admin panel. Internationalized to make translations easy. Compatible with extensions (updates don’t overwrite customisations)

Ultimate security check plugin

This plug in is very useful to wordpress security as this plug in scans your blogs with hundreds of known threats and identifies security with your wordpress installation and then gives you a “security grade” that how well you have protected yourself and you can fix the problems your self also.

Wp security scan plugin

This plugin will scans your whole wordpress installation for security vulnerabilities(weaknesses) and suggests you corrective action for that particular thing. It scans for security vulnerabilities like passwords,file permissions,database security,word press admin security,version hiding etc.

Bulletproof Security

This plugin protects the WordPress blog or site from XSS and SQL injection hacks.

F-Secure Safe Links

This plugin protects your site visitors and readers better by displaying what links on your site are safe to navigate to. More specifically it checks outside links for security threats.

WP Security Scan

This plugin will basically scan your hosted WordPress site or blog and identify any potential security risks or issues. After all risks are outlined the plugin then suggests potential fixes.
Having your site or WordPress blog hijacked is not a pleasant experience. If hackers are successful, they can perform a complete wipe of all site content or even destroy important site files.

In order to better protect your site you can install certain security plugins to protect the internal content from outside sources. But keep in mind that while security plugins do help better protect the site, they will not completely prevent serious attacks. That is why a good habit to fall into is to routinely backup your WordPress content. If you don’t know how to do a full WordPress database backup, check out our related article

After you know how to backup your WordPress database it’s time to install those security plugins we were talking about. Heres a list of the most useful security plugins out there.

It should also be noted that the more plugins you have installed, the more vulnerable your site is to outside hackers- especially if the plugins and WordPress application is not up to date.
