Today marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in the journey of this much-beloved tool. We are very happy to announce that WP Remote has been acquired by BlogVault.

If you’re using WP Remote, there is no reason to worry, read on to know more about what’s in store for the tool and its users.

But Wait, What! Who’s BlogVault?

Founded in 2007, BlogVault’s mission is to give people the power to build valuable online businesses and grow in competitive spaces.

Over the last 7+ years, we’ve helped more than 100,000+ customers from across the world to improve their website security posture.

We’ve had the honor of partnering with some of the biggest names in the business including really big web hosts such as WPEngine, Cloudways, DreamHost, LiquidWeb, Pantheon, Savvii and more.

And we believe we’re only getting started. It’s Day 1 for us!

Why Did BlogVault Acquire WP Remote Anyway?

Founded in 2010, WP Remote is a pioneer website management tool. Having been in the community for so long, the plugin has now acquired an iconic status.

WP Remote’s mission aligns closely with where BlogVault is headed. It just made sense for BlogVault to acquire WP Remote and continue working towards building better products and enable people to build valuable online businesses.

BlogVault’s Plan For WP Remote

The WP Remote tool & features in its current form will be discontinued and retired on 31st January 2020.

The same will be replaced by BlogVault’s website management features, with many new additional and powerful modules. Curious about what all BlogVault offers? Check it out from here.

1. Current Users Can Move to the New Service

BlogVault will provide an extremely easy way for current WP Remote users to migrate to the new management service powered by BlogVault. More on this in the next section (and don’t worry, we’ve got your back).

2. What’ll Happen to Your Website Data?

Two things can happen to the current user’s data:

1. Users can export their data from the existing WP Remote dashboard by going over to Backups and then selecting the option Download Site.

2. Another option is to migrate over to the new and powerful management service from BlogVault and then download the data from the new dashboard. But before you decide to take that step, make sure to check which data will be migrated from the old service to the new one and what won’t be migrated. You’ll find this information from the migration page.

You will have 3 months to make the move. The last date for switching to the new service is 31st Jan 2020.
