How to create a temporary login link with the Temporary Login Without Password plugin

We try to minimize sending passwords via email because we value security and privacy. We’ve chosen the Temporary Login Without Password plugin to help us achieve this goal. With that plugin, it’s possible to create a special link with which we can log in without the need for a username and password. If you cannot install plugins, please create an admin user with the steps here.

  1. Install the plugin

    In your WordPress backend, go to Plugins -> Add new. Search for “temporary login without password” and click the “Install Now” button shown below.

  2. Activate the plugin

    After installing, click the “Activate now” button as shown below.

  3. Go to the temporary logins settings

    After activating, we can go to the temporary login settings. Navigate to Users -> Temporary Logins as shown below.

  4. Creating a new temporary login

    Click the “Create new” button first. Some entry fields show up. Fill out the email address as shown below. The role should be Administrator and the expiry can be set to one week (which is the default setting). After filling the form, you can click submit to complete the creation of a new temporary login.

  5. Copy the temporary login link

    After submitting the form, please click the “Click to Copy” button and share the link with us. We’ll be able to log in without any passwords sent via email and the Admin account will be automatically removed after 1 week.

  6. Set user profile language to ‘English’.

    If your site’s default language is not English, please change the temporary user’s language to English.

How to change the default language for an individual user

  1. Log in to your WordPress website.
    When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’.
  2. Click on ‘Users’.
    On the left-hand side, you will see a menu. In that menu, click on ‘Users’.
  3. Click ‘Edit’ under the username.
  4. Change the ‘Language’ option to ‘English (United States)’
  5. Click ‘Update user’.
