Jetpack 7.5 is now available for download, and it makes every step of using Jetpack smoother. “Magic Links” simplify logging in to mobile, UI improvements make using Jetpack a whole lot more intuitive, and bug fixes and compatibility improvements keep things working as expected with a range or other hosts and plugins.

Now you can log in to the WordPress mobile app in one click — no passwords, no password manager, no repeated incorrect logins from typing on a tiny phone keyboard.

Check your email on your mobile device and click the link, and voilà! You’re logged in.
Every little bit of the Jetpack UI — every icon, button, or phrase — contributes to a great Jetpack experience. For this release, we’re focusing on the words: going through every title, call to action, or short tip to make sure they give you clear descriptions with sufficient detail and use consistent language. With 7.5, we’ve cleaned up our microcopy so you’re able to move around Jetpack secure in your ability to navigate it and use everything it offers.
While we were in there, we also removed an extra step in the setup process and we’ve added clearer descriptions of Jetpack plans, taking some of the friction out of configuring things.
We’ve been busy squashing bugs and improving Jetpack’s compatibility with hosting environments and other plugins. You can check the full changelog for more details. To use the latest version of Jetpack on your site, update your existing installation or install Jetpack.
Please note that this release requires that you run a recent version of WordPress (5.2 or newer), as well as a version of PHP higher than PHP 5.6. If you use an outdated version of WordPress or PHP, we recommend that you update your site to the latest version as soon as possible.
Update July 2nd: we released a new Jetpack version 7.5.1 with no functionality changes, but fixes a bug when attempting to delete the Jetpack plugin. It also addresses the new PHP minimum requirement in Jetpack 7.5.
Update July 4th: we released a new version of Jetpack, 7.5.2, to address issues happening when a site’s connection to WordPress.com is set to “Safe Mode”.
