How to Log In to Your WordPress Dashboard from Your Bluehost Account

how to log in to your wordpress dashboard

Having trouble logging in to your WordPress dashboard?

It happens.

Sometimes an unexplainable glitch occurs or maybe there’s an explanation, but hey, you’re new to blogging so you can’t be expected to know everything.

If you still cannot log in to your WordPress dashboard even after changing the password, or you can’t seem to change the password, I found a handy little trick to get you where you want to go.

I must salute Bluehost customer service for showing me this. Thanks, dude.

Speaking of Bluehost, who is your hosting company? This only works if you are using Bluehost.

Okay, here’s a two minute video where I show you what to do. Below that are the steps written out.

Feel free to ask any questions you might have in the comments.

Hope this helps,

5.Presto! You should now be inside your WordPress Dashboard.

BONUS!

6. Now that you’re inside your WordPress Dashboard you will want to reset your WP password. (If you don’t need to do this, that’s great. You’re done!) The first thing you do is go to the left side of your dashboard and scroll down to the “Users” tab,, then scroll down that and click “Your Profile.”

7. Then scroll down to “New Password” and click the “Generate Password” button.

8. It will generate a strong password for you and you can use that if you like. Most people prefer creating their own passwords, and if that’s you too, then just erase the automated password, type in your password, and boom! You’re done!
