Adding the Swoop service to any Wordpress site is dead-simple with Swoop's WordPress plugin. Instead of custom-coding Swoop within a WordPress site, let our Swoop plugin do the heavy lifting. Follow these steps and you'll be on your way to eliminating passwords on your WordPress site in a flash.
- Log into your WordPress admin typically found at: www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin.
The Last Time You'll Need Your Password
This should be the last time you need that pesky WordPress admin password. Once you're done installing and configuring the Swoop plugin, you'll be password-free moving forward.
- On the left-hand navigation, click on 'Plugins'
- Next, click on 'Add New'
- Search for: 'Swoop: Password-Free Authentication' in the search bar.
- Click 'Install Now'
- Navigate to 'Installed Plugins'
- Activate 'Swoop: Password-Free Authentication'.
- Click on the Swoop Settings Page to take a shortcut to Step 2.
Once the Swoop plugin is installed and activated, you'll be ready to take advantage of Swoop Connect, which quickly and easily creates/connects your Swoop account to your WordPress site. Let's begin.
- Navigate to Settings > Swoop: Password-Free Authentication
- New users should click 'CREATE AND CONNECT'
For users with an existing Swoop account, click 'Connect' underneath the Existing User header. From there you'll be presented with the ability to Swoop into your Swoop dashboard account. You can decide if you want to connect to an existing org > property or create a new property.
- Next, you'll see the Swoop authentication service embedded within the connection flow. Follow the steps to authenticate with either 'Get Magic Link' or 'Send Magic Message'.
- Click 'CONNECT TO SWOOP PASSWORD-FREE AUTHENTICATION'
That's it. You're done.
And so are passwords on your WP site.
The next time you log in to your WordPress site, the default WP username/password will be replaced with the 'Swoop In with Email' icon.
