By default, most WordPress sites can be adopted to mobile screens automatically if you allowed it in your theme settings. In order for a site to be considered mobile-friendly, its text has to be readable without tapping and zooming, its tap targets need to be spaced out appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.
