In this guide, we will teach you how to find the WordPress login URL easily.

Limiting Login Attempts
Another important security feature to think about when securing your login is the limit the login attempts. Some hosts do this automatically, but if not you can always use a plugin like Limit Login Attempts Reloaded to limit the attempts anyone can try to log in to your WordPress.
Finding the WordPress login URL is easy once you know that you can simply add any of the /login/, /admin, /wp-admin/, or /wp-login.php/ after the main URL and be redirected to the right login page.
