  • I only use number 2 but of course I’m biased.

    Number one tends to be problematic. First, it can block legitimate users thanks to certain plugins that access wp-admin. Second, assuming you’re only using HTTP BASIC Auth, it really isn’t all that secure as you only have a limited group of users, the credentials may not be encrypted, their is no session so credentials have to be retransmitted on every request, etc.

    Thank you for your response. I’ll keep that in mind. All the best!
