Change wp-login.php to whatever you want. It can also prevent a lot of brute force attacks.
Simple, and effective!
Great plugin and fantastic support!
Recommend it 5/5!
This plugin offers good protection to a wordpress site. It is very easy to use. I had problems with the site and I'm glad I found Rename wp-login.php. thank you!
I tested this plugin on both WordPress 3.4.2 and 3.6 it worked correctly on both WP versions. I had one small issue or interaction with another plugin which the author fixed amazingly in just minutes.
This plugin is really useful because it blocks access to wp-login.php which many Bots look for. You can pick a unique name for the new login path. This is not security by obscurity because no bot will not find the wp-login.php program. This is a simple solution to a nagging WP problem.
Since April 2013, a large botnet of 10's of thousands of compromised servers has been attempting to break into WordPress websites by continually trying to guess the username and password using the standard wp-login.php program.
OK, so this plugin was recommended by my host to keep me safe from brute force attacks.
Is this compatible with Better WP Security? (sorry for my lack of knowledge, I'm rather new to WP).
Thanks for making this great plugin. Keep it up.
Plugin works great out of the box. Had an issue with a 404 error on my login page. Author helped me debug it and we figured out what the issue was (ended up being a problem with "Almost pretty" permalinks). Thanks for the help!
