Blocking the ‘Admin’ Username

Preventing 'admin' as a username deters attackers.

Plugin Module Overview - Blocking the ‘Admin’ Username

The username ‘Admin’ is commonly used in many WordPress installations and is, therefore, an easy target for brute force attacks. WP Extended helps to combat this with the ‘Block the Username “Admin”‘ module, discouraging the use of predictable usernames and making it harder for hackers to guess your login details.


Step 1 – Setup:

Login to your website

Ensure WP Extended Pro is installed and activated

Navigate to the WP Extended menu item

Locate the Blocking the ‘Admin’ Username Module

Switch the module on
