XcooBee For WordPress


This is the main plugin we use to connect your WordPress site to the XcooBee privacy network.


XcooBee for WordPress establishes connection to the XcooBee network and allows website running WordPress to securely message users via their XcooBee accounts. This is helpful in cases where increased security and privacy is needed especially around password recovery.

XcooBee for WordPress is created to help WordPress site owners manage other XcooBee add-ons as well. So there is only one part to configure for connectivity for all of the XcooBee plugins and add/ons.

In particular it will allow you to:

  • use your XcooBee Id as alternative to email for login
  • send highly secure password recovery notices
  • configure your XcooBee connection endpoint
  • configure your XcooBee credentials

XcooBee for WordPress is our common plugin that you need to use our other XcooBee WordPress add-ons. To get the most of the plugins and add-ons we recommend you obtain an API key. This can be obtained freely on the XcooBee network by upgrading to a free developer account.

Built with developers in mind

We support XcooBee and all its add-ons with comprehensive, easily-accessible documentation. With our docs, you’ll learn how to easily use and even extend our plugin.


WordPress.org is home to some amazing extensions for this plugin, including:


Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 5.6.0 or greater (PHP 7.2 or greater is recommended)

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of XcooBee, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “XcooBee for WordPress” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.
