    A strong password is good. Hopefully, you are not using “Admin” username for your admin tasks. Make it something different and with a few special characters just like you would for your password. And then, do not post as Admin; create a different account for posting.

    And while we’re on this topic (sort of), for sites that make you create security questions and answers, pick any security questions, and then make the answers random with alphanumeric and special characters. I do this on every site now. Q: What’s your favorite food? A: s9#mvL*%@K%
    We are all using some sort of password manager by now, I hope, so using a “random” looking password like this is not something you’ll have to remember.

    I have multiple sites hosted at Flywheel (getflywheel.com) and they force this plugin as a must-use (muplugin). My oldest site there is 3 years and has never been hacked, even though I can see about a dozen lockouts per day.
