There may be times when you may want to give someone administrative
access to your WordPress site. e.g. a developer or designer you’ve hired
to work on your site.
Under no circumstances should you e-mail your WordPress administrative username and password to anyone. E-mail is transmitted in clear text, and is easily intercepted and exposed/shared.
You should always protect and maintain control of your primary WordPress administrator account.
To authorize administrative access to your WordPress site:
- Send the URL to your WordPress Web site to the person.
- The person would then register as a user on your site.
- You’ll then elevate the rights of the persons new account.
- Once you no longer require the persons help, you can reduce their accounts’ access rights or disable their account.
