*Are you searching for a quick and easy solution to secure your admin page? If that’s the case, the Rename WP Login URL plugin can change the login page URL. It is a very lightweight plugin that allows you to change the login page URL to what you want. It doesn’t modify or rename files in the core, and it doesn’t implement rewrite rules.
