When you work with website designers and developers, you are entering a relationship built on trust. For that reason, I prefer that my clients not send me their login information via e-mail. I prefer for them to add me as an administrator on their site.
Today I will walk us through the steps on how to grant your designer (or developer) admin access to your site without revealing your personal login on the WordPress.org platform.
In your WordPress.org site, go to Users > Add New
Fill out all the required fields with your designer or developer’s information.
Make sure you check the “Send Password?” box to ensure your designer receives this information. Remember, you will be deleting this account after your designer is done with the changes you’ve hired her to do.
I recommend leaving the default password generated by WordPress for your site’s security.
A word on passwords: please never use passwords as predictable as admin or password1234 or any variation of this combination as there are people out there counting on this as a possible way to hack your site!
