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 customisation, 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 monetisation, 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

Use the CDN option at your own risk

The CDN option, instead of just optimizing images on your website will resize them at will. Even if you disable the option, your images will still be cut in half. So beware... Also super fun when there is too many login attempts and you are blocked from your own site and the email option to recover your site doesn't work (this fact was ignored by support) and ultimately i had to login into my account in wordpress.com and disable that option as white listing my ip address didn't work either.

Enable the Jetpack Mobile theme

Hi, I have in "Theme enhancements" the option "Enable the Jetpack Mobile theme" turned on with "Show featured images" & "Use excerpts instead of full posts on front page and archive pages" However this "Enable the Jetpack Mobile theme" seems not to be stable, sometimes it does what it says but many don't. I have tried to adjust other plugins that may interfere with this option but haven't found the solution.

Must have!!

Must have!! useful tracing function, easily and free to use.
