So, In one sense these login errors are helpful to us as they conveys us our fault. But if we see the other side, these login errors can be harmful because hackers can misuse this information to hack our wordpress account or website. So, it is very necessary to remove login error messages  for wordpress security.

How to Remove Login Error Messages

The login error messages can be removed by several ways but I’ll tell you the simplest way. To remove login error messages, you have to login to your website’s control panel. After logging in go to wp-content – themes – your wordpress theme and there you see a file named function.php . So, we have to edit this file and put a small code in it.

Before doing this I suggests you to download your current file. After this, right click on the file and click on edit. Now you have to paste the code written below and save the file.

add_filter(‘login_errors’,create_function(‘$a’, “return null;”));

You are done now. When you type a wrong username or password then the login error messages will not appear.
