Want some tips to secure your WordPress ? Let me list down a few

[*]1. Make sure that you have the latest version of themes and plugins
[*]2. Hide your admin URL

Don't let people find it at /wp-admin

There is a free plugin for the same

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wps-hide-login/

Login Lockdown plugin prevent login activity after malicious failed login attempts

https://wordpress.org/plugins/login-lockdown/

You can also use [reCAPTCHA](https://support.google.com/recaptcha/?hl=en) for better protection

[*]3. Don't display your WordPress version
[*]4. Not all themes and plugins are safe
[*]5. Use a security tool like WordFence
