Does My Theme Matter In Regards To WordPress Security?

In the past, there has been a lot of speculation as to whether or not themes can actually make your WordPress site more secure.

Some people say that using an outdated theme is bad for security while others will argue that it doesn’t matter at all.

In this blog post, we’re going to explain why or why not you should be considering security when choosing a new theme for your site!

Does my theme choice make a difference in my site’s security?

As it turns out, the theme you choose for your site will not play a role in keeping your WordPress website secure.

All themes are made with security flaws and all run on the open-source WordPress platform, so it really doesn’t matter what kind of them you use because they all have issues that can be exploited by hackers.

One thing that is related to themes and security is the version of your theme. You want to keep your theme updated at all times to avoid these loopholes.

When these loopholes have been exploited, we recommend using our free plugin service to scan for vulnerabilities and see how badly your website has been compromised.

Even though your theme doesn’t play a role in security, it’s still important to choose the right WordPress theme for your business and development needs.

We recommend checking out the Divi Theme, by Elegant themes. It’s easy to use, constantly updated, has a massive library of tips and tricks and offers some of the best technology for building a website without code.

Some themes are easier to use than others and come with built-in features that can help optimize your website’s site speed.

In conclusion, it doesn’t really matter what kind of WordPress theme you use when it comes to security.

All themes are made with security flaws which means no matter which one you go with they all have vulnerabilities that hackers could exploit.

This is why it’s super important to take advantage of a security plugin such as Sheild Security to make sure that all your bases are covered.

Let us know in the comments what theme you use and why you like it!
