Hi, the plugin works amazing, I´m using it and am very satisfied with the behavior. I was able to hide a lot of info from my website source, with no compromises at all.
But I´m wondering how exactly does the plugin protect websites? All the redirected paths are still acessible, so I don´t understand what kind of protection this brings. For example, I changed my wp-admin path, but if someone types xxx.com/wp-admin they reach the new path anyways via a 301 redirect.
Is it just for “hiding” the paths and plugins at “view source”, to avoid fingerprinting of the tools I use? If it always gets redirected to the new URLS, wouldn´t someone still be able to attack the site?
I´m not an expert, so I´m trying to understand what advantage I have of hiding all my data with the plugin.
Also, wouldn´t this affect my SEO if I ever have to disable the plugin?
