Make information disclosure protection active.

Hi there, I had a hacker in my site, I didn't get a notice from google so they didn't see the hacker, and I didn't get any warning from defender pro. I am trying to secure my site (i restored it from a backup yesterday, and today the hacker was redirecting the site agin to porn sites. I have removed every plugin I can, I have set up the free wordfence plugin, and now I want to do this: but I am not a techie: You don't have information disclosure protection active. I want to make this active but don't understand it.
i also would love any advice as to how I keep the hacker out or get them out of my site.

    Hello Tina,

    After your site was hacked the most important thing is to change every password that gives access to the site.

    From what I see the main issue is that your WordPress is not updated. This is very crucial when it comes to security. You have to have everything updated to latest version.
    If you are restoring the backup and you haven't still updated everything that needs updates on your site then hack will happen again.

    From what I see Defender shows that there are issues on your site that need to be fixed:
