    I wanted to share my blog with some-one and doing so I accidentelly send him the link while I was editing. The link brings him into my admin, in fact I send him an open door into my blogsadmin. What can I do in order to make my admin safe again?

    The blog I need help with is anoukhubatka.wordpress.com.

    Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one because that’s how many hackers gain access to blogs

    1. If you can log-in go here > Users > All Users and delete any user that does not belong there.

    2. Disable post by email > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-email/

    3. Disable post by voice > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-voice/

    4. Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password

    5. Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.

    6. Set up two step authentication http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/two-step-authentication/

    Then read this please knowing that blogs don’t get hacked when security protocols are followed. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/ Never ever provide anyone else with access to your login information.

    Did you maybe send them the “request feedback” link from the Post editor? It is down a bit below the editing box. That will let them see the Post on your blog and make remarks but not have any admin rights

    If you sent him a preview link, and he’s not a blog admin or editor, he can’t read it anyway.

    Thank you so much for your replies!

    Timethief: thanks for the manual. I will follow the steps and see what happens.

    Auxclass: I don’t think I did that.

    But I do believe I did what Raincoaster says, yes it must have been the preview link I send, thinking it was the actual link to my blog. It was a link with ‘admin’ in it, though.

    I’ll see what I can do, now, and may get back to this later. Thanks!

    If it was a link with “admin” in it, he can’t see it. Can you see this one? https://raincoaster.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=15057&action=edit

    but how come I can enter the blog myself with that same link in the email I sent, even though I changed the password?

    WordPress.COM knows when you are logged in – they set a cookie with your browser – that is how you can move from page to page and stay logged in and you can work on your blog and also post in the support forum here
