Create a temporary login for our support team

Our support team is always motivated to help you as much as possible. Remote diagnosis via e-mail is not always sufficient. In such cases, it may be helpful to grant our support access to your website’s dashboard. Of course, this access should be temporary and of course you can rely on the confidentiality and seriousness of our staff.

Option 1: Use a plugin to easily enable temporary access

The most secure way to give access to our support staff is temporary access with limited rights. Good news: there is a good plugin that makes this easy.

You can download this plugin here for free.

How do you use the plugin?

  8. After you have done that, send the temporary login to our support staff.

Option 2: Create an admin user account via the WordPress user management

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard

  4. Send the login credential over to our support staff
  5. Don’t forget: Once the issue is resolved and the support staff no longer needs access to your website, you should delete the account!
