Don’t forget to update WordPress! Avoid being hacked.
Just like any software that you have on your computer, tablet or phone, WordPress needs to be updated on a regular basis. Unlike most software, though, WordPress is an open source community. That means there are hundreds of people around the globe working to constantly improve it and fix old problems. Updated versions are released frequently.
Updating your WordPress site may seem cumbersome, but it’s very important.
Updating your plugins can be just as important as updating WordPress, and you should do so before you update WordPress. This can prevent your plugins from breaking, because developers do their best to adapt to the newest versions of WordPress.
Out-of-date plugins can be even more vulnerable to security attacks than outdated WordPress versions.
The easiest way to avoid being targeted by hackers is by updating often. It’s much easier to prevent damage than restore your site later. Of course, it takes some time and hassle but this needs to be done in order to make your site more secure.
