Fake Admin


🕵️‍♀️🔌 WordPress plugin that prevents your admin user from being exposed to the public.

Protect Your WordPress Admin User with FakeAdmin

Have you ever published a post or page on WordPress from your admin account without realizing that you are exposing your admin user to the public? 🙈 It is a common mistake as well as frustrating, especially if your blog is personal and you are the administrator and blog writer.

Do not care anymore! 🤗 With FakeAdmin you can prevent your admin user from being publicly exposed.

How does it work?

The plugin allows you to create a “ghost” user that looks like your admin user, but without the ability to create or edit anything. Once the FakeAdmin user is created, as an administrator, you can work on your WordPress site without worrying about exposing your admin user to the public. Everything you create or edit will be attributed to the user FakeAdmin and the security of your site will not be compromised.

It’s a simple and effective solution! Now you can work on your site with peace of mind knowing that you are protecting you.
