Preferably tips on WordPress security that are easy to understand and applying. I hardly know a thing about coding.

Thanks

You can always use security plugins for WordPress. WordFence is a popular option with Wordpress users. I guess it is free as well.

Some tips on keeping WordPress secure
• Change your passwords often, and use long passwords with letters and number.
• Keep your software up to date.
• Don't install themes and plugins from sources you don't know.
• Delete plugins you aren't using.
• If you have an SSL certificate, connect to your WordPress admin login using HTTPS.
• Consider two-factor authentication.
• Don't use Admin” for your administrator login (this is the first login name hackers try to crack).
• Back up your site regularly. Your host is not responsible for 3rd party software you install.
• Protect your WordPress site using .htacces which is an access configuration file that controls the directory in which it is placed and all sub-directories.
• Install a plugin to monitor your WordPress core files and traffic (and don't forget to read the logs).
• Change the database prefix from "wp" to anything else (hackers know what the default prefix is).

WordPress is so popular that they have a plugin for almost every custom work we use to do in a CMS. WordFence can do a variety of work using an admin UI to secure your wordpress installation. It has login security, firewall and monitoring options.
