There are many different reasons why your WordPress site may have been hacked. One of the easiest ones to fix is simply that you aren't using strong passwords so it is easy for a hacker to figure out your password. You also may be getting hacked because you do not have two factor authentication set up on your website, which is a great security protocol to have. Finally, make sure that you don't have a WordPress username named admin as that allows them to hack you much easier.
- WordPress isn't insecure, but its modularity and popularity make it a target for hackers.
- Proper password hygiene and the use of two-factor authentication will help prevent hacks.
- Updating WordPress core and all your themes and plugins will make you less vulnerable.
