Access to the website is sensitive, don’t use a common password or give unnecessary access to anyone. Moreover, don’t panic if you face any HTTP error while logging in. This doesn’t mean your site is hacked or something terrible happened. It’s a common scenario in WordPress sites; you can quickly fix HTTP errors on your own.
