Does one thing and does it well

I needed a plugin to let another plugin developer into our WP back-end without providing full access. I googled around and came across Waseem’s plugin. It took a little configuring (somehow not allowing access to JetPack caused an error) but it just worked. We were able to give limited access without risk.

This is one of those plugins that you may not need that often but when you do need it it’s absolutely invaluable.

Good working plugin but…

This plugin does what it is supposed to do but it has to create an new user instead of assigning for existing user. Not a big deal but nice to have this ability in future upgrade. Thanks

highly recommended for anyone providing support

When providing support for a plugin or theme, you often reach a point where you would need to take a look at yourself on the backend for further analysing the reported issue.

This plugin really helps to achieve that without sacrificing the security of the user involved (especially as lots of users tend to send their main admin account without changing their password – which also raises the liability of the plugin or theme developer to prevent abuse of that credentials on their own systems).

The plugin developer is very responsive and open to feedback – trying to constantly improve his plugins.

All in all, this is a highly recommended plugin for any plugin or theme developer who is also providing support.
