What is WordPress Security Lock?
SWordPress Manager has added multiple measures to improve the security of WordPress websites. One of them is Auto Updates, and it’ll be enabled immediately once you setup a new WordPress site with the site manager. It ensures that newly released security patches are installed in a timely manner.
Another important security layer is the Security Lock which moves the security of your WordPress website to the next level. Basically, it locks all files and directories so that they cannot be modified or replaced, and it prevents new files from being uploaded.
At the same time your WP website continues to function normally. You can add new articles/pages, upload pictures/videos from WordPress Dashboard.
The SWordPress Manager is smart enough to automatically disable the security lock during the automatic updates of the core, plugins and themes. After the updates it will enable the security lock. So you can post new content, edit your website, upload media files, upgrade themes and plugins as usual.
You need to disable the security lock temporarily if you need to install a new plugin or edit any of the WordPress files manually through the online File Manager or FTP client. It is recommended to enable the security lock once you are done with the changes.
