How to prevent Phishing attacks on WordPress site

I manage a site for a utility company that does not do their own online billing. Rather they host links to the third party that does it.

I wanted to protect against Phishing attacks with these links.

The first thing I was going to do was add a plugin for a Yubikey.

Will that be sufficient or should I also do something else? I was thinking about signing the links with a PGP key, but that may be too complex for the users of the site.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot protect your clients from phishing. Only the final user himself can do that. And if the final user is stupid enough like a fish eating the byte from the hook, nobody can help him.

Or maybe you are not talking about phishig ...

phishing means the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.

If you are looking to provide some degree of general protection on the Wordpress site, take a look at wordfence. As matrix8086 says, phishing is not something you can prevent on links that you host. I wonder if you are trying to prevent something else?

I think you are misunderstanding.

I'm worried about my site being hacked so that false phishing links to the 3rd party are displayed, so that they get personal information.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

We were not misunderstanding. We were answering the question as asked and I was asking for clarification. Now you have been specific, I can say that my suggestion to take a look at wordfence was appropriate. You will want to prevent admin logins except from authorised IP addresses if that is possible and you will want to vet any plugins you are using to make sure that they are in no way affecting your security. I think wordfence is a good starting point for you.
