Akismet uses WordPress.com user accounts for account management. To use Akismet you need to have a WordPress.com account.
Already have a WordPress.com account?
Great! Go ahead and sign into Akismet with your WordPress.com account.
If you don’t remember your password for your WordPress.com user account, you can reset it using WordPress.com’s lost password form.
Don’t have a free WordPress.com account?
If you don’t have a WordPress.com account, it only takes a few seconds to sign up and is totally free! Simply click “Sign in with WordPress.com” on the Akismet.com homepage, click the “Create a new account” link.
Not sure if you have a WordPress.com account?
No problem! If you use VaultPress, Crowdsignal, Jetpack, IntenseDebate, or Gravatar, you can just sign in with the same account you use for those services.
You can always contact Akismet support if you’re not sure and we’ll be happy to help!
