You might be wondering why would you change your login page URL? The reason is, if you visit any WordPress powered website or any of your WordPress site than I would suggest you visit www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin on your blog. And most of the site would result in opening the WordPress login page on the same URL. The sites which result in opening the WordPress login page are vulnerable to hacking.
As everyone else including hackers know your login page and this results in trying brute force attack, username-password guessing and much more to get the credentials. Also malicious bots are trained to visit the www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin page to brute force. Hence, in future security concerns arose and you might pay in form of bad impression on consumer, also in terms of poor SEO ranking and what not.
You don’t want to get hacked or trapped. Right? If yes, than create your custom login page now for your WordPress blog by following the below steps.
