WordPress Login Security Issues and Solutions

If you have been experiencing WordPress Login Security Issues, we’ve got you covered with helpful tips that will grant you access to your site in no time. FLATsite can help to prevent and solve a myriad of login issues.

Lost or forgotten passwords are more common than you may think. If you have lost or forgotten your WordPress password, the first thing you should try is using the built-in recovery feature. Click on ‘Lost your Password?’ and from there, you will be prompted to enter your email address. WordPress will then send a link to the email you provided them, which will allow you to reset your password.

Using FLATsite will solve this common login issue as it automatically remembers WordPress logins. Users only need to log in to FLATsite’s secure portal to gain access to the dashboard of WordPress sites. Learn more on how FLATsite protects WordPress logins.

Cache and Cookies

Cookies are small files located in browser directories that track a user’s interaction with certain websites. During the login process, WordPress requires the use of cookies. If cookies aren’t enabled, WordPress login cannot take place.

There is a simple fix to this login issue which requires you to ensure that cookies are enabled and then clearing your cache and cookies. However, using FLATsite renders this issue obsolete because though WordPress requires cookies to log in, FLATsite skips this step.

Plugin Interference

Another common WordPress Login issue is the occurrence of Plugin Interference. Plugin Interferences could occur because a plugin was not updated properly or because there is an issue between two or more plugins.
Once you have confirmed that the issue is indeed caused by a plugin, you can resolve it by either deactivating all your plugins or renaming them. To deactivate WordPress plugins, connect to your website using a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client or use the File Manager app in your hosting account dashboard.

Once you are connected, locate the ‘wp-content/plugins folder and rename it. This will deactivate the WordPress plugins that are currently installed on your website. After deactivating the plugins, try logging into your WordPress website.

If you are granted access, this simply means that one of your plugins is the cause of your login issue. WordPress users should note that plugin Interferences are not initiated during FLATsite logins.

Theme Interference

Theme interference can be the culprit behind WordPress security login issues. This is true, particularly if your theme includes a custom login page. To determine if theme interference is what is causing your login issues, you can change the name of the theme folder via FTP. From there, WordPress will return it to its default theme.

To rename your theme folder, head to the ‘wp-content/themes’ via FTP and find the active theme’s folder and change the name. After this is done, you can try logging into your site to check if your active theme was behind your login issue. Theme interference is not applicable with FLATsite.
