Unfortunately, all websites are targets for hackers and spammers — the more popular your website becomes, the more important it is for you keep your site and content safe.

Frequently asked questions

Here are the answers to some common questions. And we’re always more than happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

Will the free services always be free?

Yes. All Jetpack services that are currently offered for free will always be offered for free.

Why should I choose Jetpack?

While there are many plugins that offer similar services, customers love Jetpack because they get everything needed in a single bundle — rather than multiple plugins by different authors. It’s also brought to you by Automattic, one of the most trusted names in WordPress, who manages millions of WordPress sites on

Can I get a refund if I’m not happy?

If — for any reason — you’re not satisfied with our services, we will issue a full refund within 30 days. No questions asked.

Doesn’t my host provide backups and security?

Most likely. Most hosting companies provide backup services (if yours does not, we recommend finding one that does!). But if your site is important to you, represents your brand, or directly generates revenue, it’s never a good idea to rely on a single backup provider.

Jetpack provides a dependable — and WordPress-optimized — backup solution that’s independent of your hosting provider and always available when you need it.
