While WordPress can be beneficial because it's easy to access, its popularity also makes it a popular target for hackers. A website owner can reduce their risk with security measures. It is critical to audit plug-ins and themes regularly to make sure that they're not outdated and that they don't contain bugs. You also want to make sure that any plugins that are being used are necessary. Otherwise, they should be removed. Further, you should only use trusted plug-ins with a clear privacy policy.
