WordPress is popular! We know this as 34% of websites online are built using the WordPress platform. Unfortunately that means it’s open to attention from hackers therefore it’s important to ensure that your website is updated regularly.
It’s possible to switch on automatic updates, kind of like you can in Windows on your computer. This is the way to ensure your site remains up to date at all times. Sometimes you might want to review updates before you implement them and update your site. This is also possible but it relies on you to check for updates regularly.
There are three types of updates available to WordPress, updates to the core files, the plugins and the themes. Keep these up to date and you’re unlikely to have too many problems.
