I recommend implementing the following security measures, which users can enable or disable conveniently from the WordPress Tools Kit:
- Restricting Access to Files and Directories
- Blocking Unauthorized Access to xmlrpc.php
- Blocking Access to .htaccess and .htpasswd
- Disabling Pingbacks
- Disabling File Editing in WordPress Dashboard
- Blocking Author Scans
- Blocking Directory Browsing
- Forbidding Execution of PHP Scripts in Specific Directories
- Disabling Scripts Concatenation for WordPress Admin Panel
- Blocking Access to Sensitive Files
- Enabling Bot Protection
By default, these features will be disabled, but users can easily enable them individually or in bulk through the WordPress Tools Kit.
Implementing these measures with user-friendly controls would significantly improve website security, providing added value to users who prioritize protecting their WordPress sites.
Implementing the idea: Most of the features could be easily achieved by adding additional rules in the .htaccess file and changing some file permissions, such as setting the wp-config.php file to 0600, other files to 0644, and directories to 0755.
