Secure Authentication

Sign in to WordPress sites quickly and securely, and add optional two-factor authentication.

How can I make sure my login details are not compromised?

Whether your site is a one-person show or you have dozens of contributors, you’ll want to make sure that logins to your site are safe and that passwords are not easily guessed.

Secure Authentication safeguards your WordPress site from:

  • Users, authors, and contributors using weak passwords.
  • Accidental sharing of user account credentials.
  • Malicious disclosure or leaks of admin passwords.

Choosing strong passwords is a basic prerequisite for any site, and Jetpack helps you take additional steps to prevent abuse and accidents.
