Jetpack Pros:

Let’s take a look at the advantages of using Jetpack.

1. Add Essential Features Conveniently

WordPress comes with all the essential publishing tools out of the box. But those built-in tools are not just enough to run a website successfully. As you grow, you’ll need to find and install more WordPress plugins to enhance the capabilities of your WordPress site.

2. Cost

The core Jetpack plugin is free. Premium features like daily backups, premium themes, and SEO tools are tied into 1 of 3 paid plans.

3. Frequent Updates

Jetpack is being maintained and updated frequently. They’re also constantly adding more and more features to the plugin.

Jetpack Cons:

A few downsides of Jetpack are:

1. Bloated

The plugin is jam-packed with tons of features, so the interface looks bloated. In fact, the interface is filled with toggles and submenus, so, chances are, you’ll find it slightly difficult to locate the modules you want to enable or disable.

2. Slows Down Your Site

There’s a heated debate about the performance of Jetpack and whether it can cause your site to slow down.

3. Risk Profile

Jetpack requires you to connect your site to your WordPress.com account. One of the benefits of this connection is that some of the features push work from your site back to their servers. However, the downside is it also passes a lot of information about your articles to WordPress.com. If you’re concerned about your privacy and don’t want to share your site information with any third parties, then Jetpack may not be the right solution for you.

Summary:

This is one of the best plugins to cater to commonly required features and functions such as security, backups, CDNs and performance, list building, marketing, and many other essentials. It’s very easy to use and it’s backed by the mother company of WordPress.com (Automattic), and a fully professional support team. Setting it up is very straightforward and working with it is very intuitive and easy, particularly for those who do not manage WP daily.
