1. Install WordPress in its Own Directory This step to secure your WordPress website will undoubtedly avails your users with highly secure log ins. Choose WordPress subdirectory to your WordPress site. This can be done for a new website or can be run for an existing website. But, if you are moving an existing WordPress installation, then you need to create a backup someplace else. Avoid using subdirectories that are easy to figure or that are common. For instance: / wordpress or / wp . These are again very easy to hack. Because they are predictable. Use a subdirectory that suits you and your business type but make sure it is unique and not predictable.

It is always good to redirect users to login through WP login.php. This makes the logging in procedure more secure and your users are protected. Also, many wordpress sites by default loads the login page and when you access the WP login.php but here type wordpress admin instead and then you are redirected to the login.php page. Just remember even when you are done hiding the Log In page with the login.php URL, you are still vulnerable if you have not selected a unique subdirectory. 2.

Further, replace it with a custom login URL which is not easy to guess or generic like admin or WP. May be you could use a plugin to lock down the wp-login.php and the set up a custom login URL. There are many such plugins available for WordPress Development.
