Improving Security and Appearance of WordPress Login Page

4. Login Lockdown
By default, WordPress does not lock users out if they try the wrong password multiple times. This allows hackers to crack your password using automated scripts. Login Lockdown allows you to limit the number of failed login attempts. After that, it locks down the login screen for that user for a limited time.

If you forget to check the ‘Remember me’ option on the login page, then WordPress will forget your login as soon as you close the browser window. Remember Me plugin allows you to automatically check the remember option each time you login to your WordPress site.
See how to set it up in our guide on how to keep WordPress from forgetting you with Remember Me.
7. Custom Login Page Customizer

8. WP Security Questions
WP Security Questions allow you to add security questions to your WordPress login screen. Users will not only have to add their password, but they will also have to select a security question and enter their answer. This adds another security layer to your WordPress admin area.

9. No Login by Email Address
By default, WordPress allows users to enter their username or email address to login. Some users believe that email address is common knowledge (anyone you email has your email address). This could potentially make it easier for someone to brute-force their password. This plugin allows you to disable login with email address feature in WordPress.

10. Prevent Concurrent Logins
If you use WordPress to sell courses online or run a membership website, then this means users can share their passwords with friends, and you could lose new business. Prevent Concurrent Logins automatically kills user session if a password is used while the user is still logged in.
