Hello and welcome to LifeGuard. In this video we’re going to show you how to login to WordPress as well as how to recover a lost password. All wordpress.org websites can be accessed the same way – by navigating to your website, and typing in “/wp-admin”. You can use the login form to type in your user name and password and then you’ll have access to the dashboard.

If you forgot your password, you can click on the “Lost Password” link. Simply enter your username or email and the password will be emailed to you.
