How to Create Temporary Login for WordPress (No Passwords)
Have you ever had to make temporary WordPress accounts that end on their own accord? To grant temporary access to the admin area, you may occasionally need to create temporary accounts. We’ll demonstrate how to create a temporary WordPress login without a password in this article.
When You Might Need Temporary WordPress Login Accounts
Many of our novice users frequently employ developers to make minor changes to their websites. To change or verify something, these developers may require access to the admin area.
If you have faith in the developer, you can set up an administrator account for them, which you can then delete once they’ve finished.
Similar to this, WordPress allows you to add new writers and users and then later block those people without losing their accounts.
On sometimes, though, you might overlook the fact that you gave someone permission to edit your website. This exposes your website to potential security risks and problems with data security.
You can create temporary accounts with no password requirements that will be automatically disabled after a certain amount of time by using temporary logins.
Now that that has been said, let’s look at how to quickly generate temporary logins in WordPress that don’t require passwords.
Adding Temporary Login Accounts in WordPress
Installing and activating the Temporary Login Without Password plugin is the first step in adding temporary login accounts to WordPress. See our step-by-step tutorial on installing a WordPress plugin for more information.
To add a new temporary login account after activation, go to Users » Temporary Logins and click the “Create New” option.
This will display a form where you must input the necessary data to add the temporary login you desire.
The user’s first and last name must be provided after their email address.
Choosing a user role for the user after creating a new temporary account in WordPress When picking a user role, be careful.
The next step is to select the account’s expiration date. After this time, the account will automatically terminate.
Last but not least, you can choose the user’s language. The user will view the WordPress dashboard in this language.
To save your changes, don’t forget to hit the submit button.
The temporary account you just added can now be accessed by anyone using the URL and success message that you now see. To copy the URL and share it with anyone you wish to have access to it, click the “Click to Copy” button.
After the time frame you chose, the temporary account will immediately expire.
Taking Care of Temporary Logins
You can manage temporary logins more easily thanks to the plugin. You may view the list of temporary logins you have added to your site by going to Users » Temporary Logins.
You may view the user’s name and email address for each account. You will be able to see their allocated role, the time since their last login, and how long it will take before their account expires.
You can remove an account, edit the user, erase a temporary login, email or copy the temporary login URL under the actions column.
When a temporary account is permanently deactivated, the administrator account will appear as the author of any posts and pages that user has created.
That’s all, we sincerely hope this guide helped you safely create a temporary WordPress login without a password.
