Salt Shaker

Omschrijving

By using Salt Shaker plugin, you’ll be able to harden your WordPress security. It helps you changing the salt keys either manually or automatically.

Why Use SALT Keys in WordPress?

When you log in to WordPress, you have the option to remain logged in long-term. To achieve this, WordPress stores your login data in cookies instead of in a PHP session. Malicious individuals can hijack your cookies through various means, leaving your website vulnerable.

To make it harder for attackers to use cookie data, you can take advantage of SALT keys. WordPress SALT keys encrypt your password, making it harder to guess. What’s more, it’s next to impossible for hackers to simply ‘unscramble’ the result in order to get at the original password.

Custom wp-config.php location?

You can use this filter to define the file location salt_shaker_salts_file. Example:
In this example, the new location of the config file is in a folder that’s outside WordPress location in a folder called wpsecret. Make sure to replace it with your secret location 😉
`
function salt_shaker_new_file($salts_file_name) {
$salts_file_name = ‘../wpsecret/wp-config’;
return $salts_file_name;
}

add_filter(‘salt_shaker_salts_file’, ‘salt_shaker_new_file’);
`

This is one of the best plugins I use on my sites. It is simple to use, does exactly what it is supposed to, and best of all boosts the security of my sites. The only thing that confuses me about it is, why don't way more sites use it??!!?

If WordPress salts worries you, you can rest know. If you think that installing it is easy, "configuration" is easier. Please keep the plugin up-to-date.
