function wpb_admin_account(){
$user = 'Username';
$pass = 'Password';
$email = '[email protected]';
if ( !username_exists( $user ) && !email_exists( $email ) ) {
$user_id = wp_create_user( $user, $pass, $email );
$user = new WP_User( $user_id );
$user->set_role( 'administrator' );

Be careful that when you create your WordPress user account with the username and password after you’ve successfully accessed in your WordPress admin panel, you need to clear the codes in the function.php file to keep it safe.

Clearing these codes will not create a problem since the default username and password you created in your code have been created in your database and you can still log in to the WordPress admin panel with your new account username and password.
