WordPress has been the leader in blogging for years, and is fast becoming one of the leading platforms for standard content management systems as well. The great challenge when it comes to WordPress Security is to find the magic combination which gives you optimal cover without conflicts or overlapping functionality.
So, here in this post I have compiled a list of some free and best wordpress login plugins for your wordpress blogs to secure your admin area. These are all free to download and you can even install them right from your WP Admin Plugins menu. Granted some of these examples may not prove useful to everyone.
While compiling this list, it’s always a possibility that I missed some other great resources. Feel free to share it with us.
