Why do I need a account?

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

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

A account is different from the account you use to log into your self-hosted WordPress. If you can log into, then you already have a 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, 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.

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!

I consider myself an experienced WordPress user/developer and after a bit of research I stumble upon the iOS App, wanted to try it out, apparently had to install Jetpack on a store? Was bugged by the fact that I have to do a lot of data sharing with for such a basic functionality, I only need the app to work, I don’t need the CDN (very slow, prefer not to use it), don’t need the tons of ads to different features, don’t like the fact that I’m redirected to after activating, was totally confused actually wrote “what the heck” when I was asked if I want to recommend this plugin… !? I haven’t even used it yet! Please consider separating the WooCommerce part from JetPack to a stand-alone module, yes it adds a lot of features, but for 99% of the stores out there they don’t need sharing features, analytics to be stored outside their server, back-up when all hosting providers provide backups, etc. On top of that, I did some measures, it adds around 10-30 queries in the WP Admin, on a bare-bone WooCommerce installation, this is not OK for growing stores, each query means more time spent processing in the server, on shared hosting this can be a very big impact — this is why people think JetPack slows their websites, because it adds (indeed) some load (as any plugin does) to the website.

Долгое время плагин был установлен на всех сайтах, но сильно грузил и год назад я избавилась он него, чувствую себя превосходно, все показания по скорости изменились, по функционалу я добавила пару легких плагинов или код. Но я оставила этот плагин на одном сайте, потому что он слишком сильно интегрирован. Сайт фотографа и я использовала галереи плагина. Но, слов нет, зашла на сайт, а галерей больше не существует, есть какие то мини сетки с фотографиями, а где мозаика, где? Теперь мне придется ставить другой плагин и в ручную перезагружать фото.... Эмоций не хватает! Хотя бы для старых статей оставили...
