P.S. Was your website built with the 1-click WordPress install? Fret not! Learn the different ways to change a website’s table prefix from (the very insecure default) wp_ to something secure:

  2. iThemes Security plugin: It has a specific setting to rename your prefix from the default wp_ to something secure.
