Security check and action

By using the "WordPress integrity check" function, you can verify and restore whether the WordPress body files are normal. This is a useful feature when there is a possibility that your WordPress site has been tampered with by malware.

Also, if a security problem is found on the site, "X problems" will be displayed to the right of the site name on the WP Toolkit management screen, and the content will be displayed by clicking on it.


If there is a "Security Vulnerability Found" message, click on it to see details and how to deal with it. Click "Mitigate" in the description to see a list of specific measures, and toggle the button on if necessary.


If you click any item other than "Security Vulnerability Found", the explanation and setting change screen will be displayed, so please change the setting as necessary.

* In the case of multi-sites, you can check for updates only for those that are being used on the representative site.
