Updating WordPress plugins is a vital task that every WordPress website owner should make sure to do from time to time. Plugin updates can introduce new features, and also fix bugs and security loopholes that may have existed in prior plugin versions. In order to make sure your site is secure and isn't susceptible to modern hacks, it's important to keep your WordPres plugins up to date.
