Local is the best offline WordPress development tool and if you’re only creating and managing sites on your local machine, a Local account isn’t necessary.
However, having a Local account is necessary for Local to improve your workflow for things that require a connection to the internet. This includes features like sharing a direct connection to your Local site via a Live Link, or automating backups of your Local site to the cloud with the Cloud Backups add-on.
Your Local account can be accessed a few different ways:
Instead of creating and remembering complex passwords, your Local account can use of Magic Link to log in! All you have to do is request a Magic Link be sent to your email from the Login page.
Within a couple of minutes of clicking the “Send Magic Link” button, you should receive an email containing a link for logging in!
Once you have a Local account, connecting Local to it is easy! Click on the avatar image in the upper-left corner of Local and select “Log into Local.” Follow the instructions to complete the connection!
It’s free and always will be.
