WordPress Security Plugins, a big ole list!

You all know I’m using WordPress. I’m a huge fan of its ease of use, robust features, plugin architecture, and active community.

That said, let’s be honest here: It’s not the safest thing around. You need to take some action to secure your WordPress install.


After putting in all of the time, and perhaps money, into your WordPress website or blog, its now time to secure and protect it from outside enemies and general bad guys: hackers, spammers and all round tossers. If your WP development knowledge is limited, your best option is to download and install plugins.

My favorites from the list:

  • WP-Security Scan
  • AskApache Password Protect
  • Akismet
  • WordPress Database Backup

Those are a subset of the plugins I use on all my WordPress blogs (a full rundown with reviews is pending for a post later this week, so stay tuned).
