This is the first thing, you need to change default permalink to custom permalink. As default permalink is not search engine friendly. So first thing is to change permalinks.

Best setting for permalink is to use post name. Just go to Settings then click on Permalink and choose the Post name in options then click on save.

This will make your permalinks keep keywords and have better ranking when it shows in search engine.

By default WordPress login id is admin. But this is not safe as any intruder can easily guess it. So login with that IS and delete default admin account and use complex password.
