We have updated the WordPress CleanTalk Security plugin and added a new option that allows you to change the URL of the authorization page wp-login.
This option helps you change the default wp-login URL. Hackers use scripts for massive brute-force attacks, and since most sites use a default login page URL, hackers configure scripts for such URLs. When you change the URL of the authorization page, hackers will not have the opportunity to perform brute-force attacks in scripts in automatic mode.
How to enable option to change wp-login URL
The option allows you to easily change the address of the authorization page to any desired one.
To enable the option, go to the WP Dashboard plugin settings -> Settings -> Security by CleanTalk -> General Settings and check box Change address to login script. Then add a new URL and click Save Settings.
You can customize the URL of the page to redirect users who visited the page with the default URL of the wp-login page.
This option does not change files and does not rewrite URLs in system files. To return the address of the default authorization page, it is enough to disable the option in the plugin settings or set a new value.
Using an authorization page with a non-default address significantly increases the security of your site’s accounts from hacking using brute-force attacks.
If you are using caching plugins, then you need to add a new authorization page in the caching exceptions.
Don’t forget to bookmark your new wp-login page URL.
