    It is universal known URL , From a security perspective, It’s a good idea to change your WP-admin login URL to make it hard for hackers to guess.

    1. Protect Against Brute Force Attack

    The reason behind changing WordPress admin URL is security.  And brute force attacks involve exhaustive “guessing” of login credentials. Until the correct combination is found. This means a brute force attack needs to crack three variables to succeed:
