Learn Jetpack


Welcome to Jetpack Personal!

Purchase a Jetpack plan and get the tools you need to secure your site, build it the way you want, and promote it to the world.

Jetpack’s Personal plan is a smart fit for sites that need basic security essentials, plus a little help from WordPress experts. With this plan, you’re able to safely back up your content, effortlessly filter spam comments and contact form submissions, and get expert help you need whenever you need it.

Here’s a closer look at what’s included in your plan, and how you can make the most of it.

Bulletproof Content Backup

Jetpack’s backup service creates secure copies of all of your content, including posts, pages, and your media library. These copies are stored in the same offsite data centers we use for WordPress.com, so your content can be accessed and restored no matter what happens to your site.

Jetpack is currently in the process of moving to a new backup engine. Currently, by default, Jetpack uses the power of VaultPress to handle the backup process, and this plugin will be installed as part of the purchase process.

Using VaultPress, daily backups of your content will start generating the same day that your Personal plan is activated. To view or restore your backups, head to Jetpack > VaultPress in your WordPress dashboard and click Visit the VaultPress dashboard. From there, you can view or restore backups from up to 30 days prior.

VaultPress dashboard for backups

You can access your dedicated backup dashboard at any time via dashboard.vaultpress.com.

If you need to restore a backup using our famous one-click process, simply click on the Restore button.


Check out this page to learn more about backups and one-click restores, including how to restore a backup to a different site for testing purposes.

If you’ve opted into our new backup engine: backups are handled directly by Jetpack and occur in real-time.

Our new backup engine is integrated directly into your site’s activity log, which will allow you to restore to any single point in time using the magical Rewind button. You can also download any available backup directly from the Activity Log.

If you’d like to enable the new backup engine for your site, you can do so via any notices in your Jetpack dashboard or by getting in touch with our Happiness Engineers.

Effortless Spam Protection

Your Personal plan also includes automated spam protection powered by Akismet, the web’s most trusted spam recognition tool. Since 2005, Akismet has been the most beloved anti-spam solution for WordPress sites, and it currently filters roughly 7.5 million pieces of spam every hour.

Akismet automatically reviews and filters all spam comments, pingbacks from other sites, and content form submissions for you. If you want to view the comments and pingbacks Akismet has flagged as spam, click Comments from your WordPress dashboard, then choose the Spam option.

You can learn a little more about manually flagging (and unflagging) comments right here.

Expert Priority Support When You Need It

When you purchase a Jetpack plan, you receive expedited service from our team of WordPress experts whenever you contact us.

Whether you’re having trouble restoring a backup or simply have a question about customizing your theme, you can contact support at any time to get fast, friendly service.
