Basic security upgrades like this one minimizes the risk and probability of your site getting hacked.
The Opencart documentation has a short chapter on the "Basic security practices".
"Renaming the admin directory to something unrelated to the the admin is necessary to prevent unwanted eyes from discovering it's location. You can access your admin login through entering your store's location, then the path to the admin. For example, if the admin folder was changed to "cookiemonster", the admin login would be at "www.yourstore.com/cookiemonster". "
* Opencart Documentation "Basic security practices"
Since opencart is not responsible for the security of your shop, you should invest in this basic security feature.
With this mod you can easily rename your admin folder and you do not have to worry about your vqMod extension, because all the file references will also be refactored at one time. The refactored files will be backed up in case something should go wrong.
Should some of your vqmod extensions not work after renaming the folder, you can just restore the backed up default admin folder and extension files.
You can also define IP and IP address ranges for accessing your administration.
If you have a static IP you can allow access to your admin panel only from this IP.
The mod comes as vqMod so no core files are changed.
