About the extension

This extension provides additional security to your website administration panel. By default the admin login page is shown inĀ OpenCart, however, it is advisable to hide the admin page by changing the admin folder name so that it makes it hard to guess for the hackers. It is possible for hackers to hack your admin if they were able to access the login page. However, renaming the admin folders might cause issues while installing other extensions of modules.

By using this extension, the admin login page cannot be viewed or accessed by anyone unless having the secret key. To access the admin, the user has to enter the secret key in the URL (Example: www.yourstore.com/admin?auth=your_secret_key ). Without the correct key, it is impossible for anyone to access the admin panel and it will redirect to the store home page.

This extension is very simple to use. The key will be stored in the database and in-case if you forget the secret key, it is very easy to retrieve.

This extension uses ocmod and is very easy to install and uninstall.
