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 much 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.

To learn more about the essential security and WordPress services we provide, visit our plan comparison page.

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 programme.

I like the feature to minify scripts and lazy load images. Really speeds up website loading. There is also brute force protection for login page, you probably do not need to install a security plugin.

I've had at least a hundred emails from JetPack over the years, telling me my site was down when it wasn't. Then when something installed by JetPack--Advanced Cache--breaks my site to blank white with a couple errors on it (complaining it can't load Super Cache when i don't even have that installed!)...? Not a peep out of JetPack. Just a mite annoying, that. If this happens to you and you can't get into your admin (I couldn't,) go into your CPanel, File Manager, and in folder WP-Content, rename the file advanced-cache.php.

This editor is one of the best page builders. Thank you for plugin and support.

I had a problem that was entirely my own doing and only looked like it might be coming from Jetpack and the volunteer support helped solve it anyways. Thank you so much and you all do some great work!
