2UPDATES: Why are they so significant?
SECURITY: Prevents a potential hacker bully from harming me! Security is arguably the most important reason why my WordPress core is up to date. WordPress currently powers 23% of all websites in the world. Due to its immense popularity, WordPress is a popular target for hackers, malicious code distributors, data thieves, and wanna be hackers.
FIX BUGS: Nobody likes a buggy site, it’s just frustrating!
COOL FEATURES: So visitors get my best and I know you want your website to be cool!
SPEED: WordPress developers are always trying to make things faster. Each new release comes with several performance improvements that makes me run faster and more efficient.
COMPATIBILITY (OR NOT): Often plugin and theme developers coordinate their updates with major WordPress releases to ensure they’re taking advantage of newly available features and enhancements. However in some cases, an update can break your existing WordPress plugins if they weren’t following the best practices and coding standards. This is why it is crucial that you keep regular backups (Flywheel backs me up everyday!)
3SSL: SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text – leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept al data being sent between a browser and a web server, they can see and use that information.
