Hi Jeson,

that path /typo3 can't be changed without having to change nearly the
complete core, so it's not recommend - especially for beginners ;) -
just keep your install updated and use strong passwords.

You may lockdown the BE with an additional .htaccess if you use an apache2.

Otherwise you may bind the backend to a specific domain:

# rewrite to primary domain for login
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain.de$
  RewriteRule ^typo3$ https://domain.de/typo3 [R=301,L]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^domain.de$
  RewriteRule ^typo3(/|/index.php|/backend.php)$
https://domain.de/typo3$1 [R=301,L]
