Hi! I’m PanicPress! Nice to meet you!
I’d just like to take a bit of your time to introduce myself. I heard you publish on the WordPress platform. That’s great! ‘Cause see, I’m a plugin for the WordPress platform, and I think I could really help you out.
WordPress is the most popular blogging platform – which you probably already know. I mean, that’s probably part of why you’re using it. It’s so popular that it’s almost ubiquitous. It’s practically the default for people looking to publish online.
There’s thousands of plugins and themes too – just like me! And we all can help you personalize your blog just the way you want it. A fancier header, custom forms, a lightbox gallery… With the right plugins and themes, you can turn WordPress into a full-on eCommerce site!
Of course, for all this popularity, there’s a price to be paid. Since the WordPress codebase is running in so many places, it’s a very popular target for hackers. If you can find a vulnerability in WordPress, you’ve found a vulnerability in hundreds of thousands of websites, some of them with millions of daily readers, which can be incredibly valuable in the hacker community. And since many people run their own WordPress installations, they may not update for several days after a new version of WordPress or a plugin is released, leaving them vulnerable to those newly-discovered hacks!
That’s where I come in.
I’m a special kind of plugin – a security plugin. I add two-factor authentication to your blog. What’s that mean? Well, it means that simply knowing your password or stealing your session isn’t enough any more – before anyone can access your WordPress administration section, you’ll get a text message and can manually approve or deny them access.
Even better, if you ever suspect that your site is under attack and want to shut your whole administration section down while leaving the front page of your site active, just text “panic” to me, and I’ll take care of it for you! All potential hackers will see is a convincing-looking PHP error and nobody will be able to access your administration section until you clean up the problem and turn it back on again.
But enough about me. What about you? If your blog is really important to you, can you afford to ignore its security? To allow hackers and vandals to disable and deface it? Won’t someone please think of the blogs?!?
Hah, sorry. I get a bit carried away, I guess.
But if you really do want to improve the security of your blog, then sign up today!
