FAQ

Is Jetpack free?

Yes! Jetpack’s core features are and always will be free.

These include: site stats, a high-speed CDN for images, related posts, downtime monitoring, brute force attack protection, automated sharing to social networks, sidebar customization, and many more.

Should I purchase a paid plan?

Jetpack’s paid services include real-time backups, security scanning, premium themes, spam filtering, video hosting, site monetization, SEO tools, search, priority support, and more.

Why do I need a WordPress.com account?

Since Jetpack and its services are provided and hosted by WordPress.com, a WordPress.com account is required for Jetpack to function.

I already have a WordPress account, but Jetpack isn’t working. What’s going on?

A WordPress.com account is different from the account you use to log into your self-hosted WordPress. If you can log into WordPress.com, then you already have a WordPress.com account. If you can’t, you can easily create one during installation.

How do I view my stats?

Once you’ve installed Jetpack your stats will be available on WordPress.com/Stats, on the official WordPress mobile apps, and on your Jetpack dashboard.

How do I contribute to Jetpack?

There are opportunities for developers at all levels to contribute. Learn more about contributing to Jetpack or consider joining our beta program.

Reviews

For Worst Plugin Lost Everything

One of the worst plugin. It had issue. Connection error, site not found and many more. Tried all solution its shown on its support, failed. Did everything that it asked, failed. Tried to reconnect, failed. Deleted and reinstaled, failed. It said xmlrpc not working, asked to check, checked, working but not this plugin. So after all of that, the last solution was, delete the site, create again with fresh setup and then try, tried. Still same ***** error!!! error!!! error!!! error!!! error!!! error!!! error!!! error!!! See, too many error!!! Isn't Worst Plugin???

Problems outweigh the benefits

JetPack has continually locked me out of my own web site. I have tried to follow the recovery instructions but to no avail. The support has been very slow in coming. I finally figured out how to get into my web site and I have deleted this plugin. Hopefully that will eradicate the problem.

Useful, but can break things and tries to take over

Jetpack has lots of useful tools, some work well, some not so much. It is really a premium/fremium plugin trying to hook you in. The whole onboarding process is now trying to get you to pay. It really does break/bend so many wordpress.org rules and I think it shouldn't be listed on wordpress.org, but who's going to stop Automattic? The whole backups issue has prompted me to write this review. It's listed as a backup tool on .org, but that is a premium only tool in Jetpack. Not cool. Anyway, some of the tools are great, some not so much. Some cause conflicts, some cause slow downs (especially on the admin side).

Mega cool

This is super hot plugin with so much useful things inside! Happy to have this tool in my toolbox!
