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?

Reviews

I tought Jetpack is kind a all in one tools multi feature plugin but in reality it was separate plugin for each feature and we have to configure each one also there's no default automatic configuration for all across it's feature. Too many questions for configurations. In fact, I was going to purchase the whole year premium license but my mind mixed up and ended up chosen the 1 month license to evaluate and here's goes too many complicated steps and first looks didn't seems right to my needs. In the first glance for my official educational website, I was looking for backup solution and then there's Jetpack, after above truth when Jetpack is using another plugin named Vaultpress for it's backup feature. Thank God I didn't purchase the whole year premium plan. Then I came up with another plugin and it's free for it's essentials feature which I like. Backup schedule with custom up to hourly timeline and capable to upload the backup files to Cloud Services (MY PRIMARY MOST WANTED FEATURE). Because my edu EMail is unlimited with G-Suite so it's not a problem with many backup files stored for long term security. Thanks anyway...
Installing Jetpack on my sites has been my WORST nightmare with WordPress. Slowed them down so much used up all my quota of webhost resources. "Exceeded Resources" was a norm for me till I disconnected my sites from WordPress.com. They don't make it simple and straightforward to disconnect JetPack entirely either do they? Disconnecting JetPack/ WordPress.om was like finding a needle in a haystack. Hmmmm so much for improved security. The disadvantages, to me, are a whale-tonne more than the advantages... if any.
