WP SMS Notifications


Do you need to keep track of changes made on your WordPress site? The WP SMS Notifications plugin can easily alert you of changes made within the WordPress dashboard.

The plugin is useful to not only keep a log of changes as they are made, but to also monitor unwanted logins. If an attacker were to successfully log into your WordPress dashboard, you will be instantly notified via text message.

How are text messages sent?
