There are 2 versions of WordPress. What we do at WordPress.com is separate from the WordPress software that you install and use with a hosting company. Take a look here to read more about the differences between the 2 versions of WordPress. When you read about updating your site to 4.7.2 or disabling the REST API it is referring to a site that uses the WordPress software and a hosting company. All of the updates your WordPress.com site needs are taken care of behind the scenes. Author Posts The topic ‘WordPress Security’ is closed to new replies.
