Website Security Tip #2: Update Themes and Plugins

With regards to plugins and themes, you should update your current theme and the plugins you have installed on your site. This helps you avoid vulnerabilities, bugs, and potential security breach points.

How to do this: Go to Plugins / Installed Plugins and the list of all your plugins will appear. If a certain plugin is not on its latest version, WordPress will let you know.

To update your theme, go to Appearance / Themes, and you will see all your installed themes there. The outdated ones will be marked just like plugins were. Simply click on “Update now.”Apart from updating every plugin and theme, keep in mind to also remove the plugins and themes that you do not use.
