WordPress 2.8 Feature Password

WordPress 2.8 is going to be published soon, even though they do not have a date yet. Nevertheless, another small insight into a new feature. After a new installation of WordPress, you get informed that you are logged in with the default password and this can be a security risk. It is therefore strongly recommended to change the password. The necessary internal links to set a new password are included in this notice.

    Thanks for the heads up, Frank.

    Althought WordPress is relatively secure, there are other measures which no doubt could be taken to prevent any security related mishaps. I’m always a little worried about security myself, tbh.

    One of the first things I do is make a new administrator account and then log in with it. This allows me to delete the auto-created one and provides better security in the long run.

One pingback
