Security Measures for WordPress
The majority of websites today are run on the WordPress platform. Because of the popularity of this platform there are several security and maintenance updates provided to users each year. It is not unknown for a new update to be released every couple of months.
Some of these updates apply to performance issues, but most of the time they patch or fix some type of vulnerability. Which is why it is important for anyone who runs a website on WordPress to update their sites regularly.
When you log into your WordPress Admin panel you will be notified when updates are required. You should get into the habit of backing up your site before running the update. Sometimes you may have a plugin or application that causes the update to not run smoothly. By having a backup you can easily restore your site if this happens. By the way, this doesn’t happen that often and it is more of a precautionary word or warning.
