I tried to use a password protect for wp-admin and it works but when I am back to my font page and trying to search my products on my Wordpress, it promoted for a password to continue because search function worked via wp-admin or there is something connected to wp-admin thus I must remove password for this folder to make search system work normally. Are there any ways to secure wp-admin in Wordpress without affecting web system works?

WordFence works best for defending brute-force attacks. Hope my answer will help you to secure your website :)

A good solution if you have a static IP address is to add a .htaccess in the wp-admin directory and allow only your own IP address to access it.

There are loads of security plugins and literally any of them can help you secure wp-admin. Just browse Wordpress directory and you'll find it.

I think these are three of the best ways to do that:
  1. Change the wp-admin link.
  2. Use a strong password and other than "admin" as the username.
  3. Secure your login page.
To change the “wp-admin” at the end of your login URL, you can use a plugin.
A strong password is good but not good enough if you keep it unchanged for years. I change all my passwords once a year.
There are many ways to secure your login page with captcha and other things that can block robots from trying to guess your login details.
Also, I recommend using a plugin for limiting the number of login attempts to less the 3.
