Holidays can be great. You might get see family that you haven't seen for a while, hopefully you get to eat some good home cooked food. But unfortunately some people know you can get distracted with your plans and try to use that to take advantage. This is true with homes and websites. Before Christmas and New Years (the most common days for Internet hacking) make sure your Wordpress sites are 100% updated and your passwords are safe as well. It's always best to have multiple passwords, so if a social network or service gets hacked they can't use those details to access other services you have.

Password managers like Dashlane can do this for you, and it's free. But you'll probably want to upgrade the system eventually as they do leave off popular options you'll want later in the free version.

The number 1 reasons hackers get into websites are not updated Wordpress sites, bad Wordpress plugins, and bad themes. If you used our site builder we have security already built in. And all other PHP script/apps should be checked with the script maker to be sure you have the latest version.

Mainly just make sure everything is updated and that you have a good password so your website will be safe and so you will have peace of mind during your holidays ventures.


We have you have a safe and joyful holiday season.

Thank you,
