Lockdown WP Admin conceals the administration and login screen from intruders. It can hide WordPress Admin and and login.

This plugin will hide WordPress Admin (/wp-admin/) when a user isn’t logged in. If a user isn’t logged in and they attempt to access WP Admin directly, they will be unable to and it will return a 404. It can also rename the login URL.

Also, you can add HTTP authentication directly from WP Admin and add custom username/password combinations for the HTTP auth or use the WordPress credentials.

This doesn’t touch any .htaccess files or change the WordPress core files. All the CSS/Images under /wp-admin/ are still accessible, just not the .php ones.

If you enable HTTP authentication, it will add HTTP authentication to the PHP files in /wp-admin/.
