Change your admin username to whatever you like. Improve your site security and and make life difficult for the hackers.
Wordpress default administrator username is admin, which makes the job easier for hackers -they only need to find out the password.
Now, you can change the default admin username to your liking. No one will know it and that improves your site security greatly.
- Install and activate
- You will find a new admin menu item ‘Admin username’
- Click on it and you will see the current username and the option to change it.
This plugin does not sufficiently check access permissions, nor does it validate the untrusted user input in any way.
In addition, this plugin can easily cause name conflicts with WordPress core code and other plugins, as it uses too generic names for classes and functions.
