    initial v1  
    11I agree with nacin, I should be up to the admin to decide how they want to secure their login page.

    3 That said, I released a [http://wordpress.org/plugins/rename-wp-login/ plugin] a few weeks ago that ‘changes’ `wp-login.php` to something else. I doesn’t break anything, all the forms work properly, the login widget and all login links work, and expired sessions work too. `wp-login.php` will return a 404 status, and so will `wp-admin` if you’re not logged in (there’s no redirect).

    55You could use it just to have a nicer login url, or to hide it, as if you had a second password. The only thing the plugin doesn’t do is hide login links on your website (if there are any), that’s up to the admin to decide.
