Dessky Security


Dessky Security is the ultralight plugin for basic Security Hardening. It is specially designed not to drain any resources from your website. Once you enable all major security measures your input is no longer required. Features include upload directory restriction, disabling of plugin/theme editor, admin username check and more.

This plugin was developed by Dessky Team.
