Change your passwords and make sure you are on the latest Wordpress version. Also have a look around to see if any of the plugins you use have bugs with them or potential security exploits. All websites are hackable including Google, you've just got to try your best to prevent the hackers.

Protect your WordPress admin access, Should you change the name of the default “admin” user that every WordPress installation starts and Always keep up with updates.

I have no idea about wordpress plugins for password protection. Try to enable apapche .htaccess and .htpasswd for the same.
