  • Resolved milprod


    Do I understand correctly that Jetpack Personal includes all the functionality of Akismet?
    I have a yearly subscription to Akismet already, and now 1 Jetpack Personal, so I am in fact paying double then.

    I maintain several sites and struggling to decide whether to get Jetpack Personal for all of them, but that is going to be rather costly.
    And cancelling Akismet is not an option right now, because I use that on more sites.

    Anyone with an idea to solve my economic dilemma?

    Hi there,

    Yes, the Personal plan has Akismet built-in. However, it seems that you have a multi-site subscription and if Akismet is that important for your sites, then you should stick with that subscription. There are no multi-site Jetpack plans at the moment.

    Alright. Thanks.
    Is it better to deactivate/remove the Akismet plugin from the site with the Personal plan?

    The Akismet plugin is still required to process the spam, that’s not built into Jetpack, it’s just bundled with the paid plan. 🙂
