When you install WordPress for the first time the admin user created by you or by the automated system adds a user ID and a name that many hackers are aware of. These security vulnerability can be corrected by using the following feature below.

Note: When you install WordPress for the first time, the first admin user name added during the setup is given an ID of 1. The ID of 1 is well known by hackers world wide. A simple solution to change the ID number is to add a second admin user and delete the admin user account with ID of 1. The new admin user will have a different ID number added to the account.

Troubleshooting Tips And Questions

Q1 ) Is there an ability to force secure passwords?

Solution one: There isn’t a “force secure password” feature at the moment.

This is something which is a candidate to be included in a future release but for now the standard WordPress feature which forces you to acknowledge the use of “weak” passwords will suffice. (Solution provided by wpsolutions.)
