Hide My WP Ghost 4.2 is Here With New Security Features

With the launch of WP 5.2, WordPress adds more security to the core to keep users’ websites secure. The problem remains with the lack of security of the themes and plug-ins that can be created by any beginner developer without security knowledge.

Because of the hacker-bots attacks targeting the exact paths of vulnerable plug-ins, more and more companies are adopting the “security through obscurity” method.

This method involves hiding the actual URL and choosing a random URL for the same result. When the hacker-bot accesses the actual URL, it will receive an error message without using the server resources.

Hide My WP Ghost 4.2 brings many improvements to protect all the themes and plugins installed on WordPress. It also comes with several options to hide the common paths of WordPress and to hide the fact that the WordPress CMS is used.

In the latest version, compatibility with other cache and SEO plugins has been updated, such as WP-Rocket, Autoptimize, WP Super Cache, WP Fastest Cache, Yoast SEO, Squirrly SEO, All In One SEO, etc. It also updated compatibility with other security plugins such as Juices, Wordfence, iThemes Security, SecuPress, etc.

Site loading speed has remained an important point in plug-in development and tests have shown that the average upload speed of a website with all the options turned on in Hide My WP Ghost is +0.05 seconds. A very good time given the number of operations performed on the frontend.

A bonus to this plugin is a new security layer for SQL / Script injection. An update to this feature was made to update the list of attacks in 2019.

So if you want to have a safe WordPress site for your business, you need to use Hide My WP Ghost to stay away from hackers. Security through obscurity is the safest solution for WordPress so far.
