Every now and then, WordPress websites break. They also get hacked, defaced and infected. There are numerous WordPress-driven sites that become a target of malicious activities. The tracking of security logs isn’t a new concept. If a site’s performance and traffic can be monitored, so can be done with security logs. An audit of security logs keeps track of everything. It helps in the forensic work if your site malfunctions or get hacked.
Such an audit comes handy in many other cases. A WordPress audit plugin works similar to a web analytics tool. An analytics tool records insights about your site visitors, their demographics, which pages they open, where they click and a lot other stuff. Similarly, a WordPress audit plugin tracks all the activities being performed by logged-in users of your site. It records all the activities taking place on the backend such as what post was added, modified, or deleted and when, what plugin was installed, when, and everything in between.
