Like what all of WordPress users out there may experience too, some of my WordPress sites are being visited regularly by brute force attackers that try to guess my login credentials.

I use All In One WP Security & Firewall to catch what are the most guessed usernames. Here is the list of the most guessed usernames that are captured on my log on 2013 (sort alphabetically):

  • aaa
  • adm
  • admin
  • admin1
  • administrator
  • manager
  • qwerty
  • root
  • support
  • sysadmin
  • test
  • user

Prevent using those usernames to make it harder for attackers to get access to your site. Because once they got your username, they will only have one more thing to guess: password (yikes!).

Got other username guesses you want to add? Please leave comments below.
