Fast User Switching


Fast user switching between users and roles directly from the admin bar or the user list – switch from a list or search for users/roles by id, username, mail etc.

Use settings to select roles that are allowed to switch user. By default only administrators can switch user.

To return to your own user, just log out. A log out link is available in the black top menu, top right, profile submenu.

When you impersonate a user, you will be effectively logged in as that user, and acquire the same rights – very convenient for testing rights for users. Also practical for consultants, bureaus and copy-writers who need to create and edit content for customers.

  • All Users Page
  • Switch back to old user
  • Recent impersonate user list


  1. Upload the ‘fast-user-switching’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  2. Browse to your WordPress admin control panel, and activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu
  3. Go to the ‘Users’ list and press Impersonate.


There is no Impersonate link in the Users list

Only administrators can see the link – or other users who have the “add_users” capability added (only admins by default).

How do i get back to my own login?

Log out and you are back, the plugin remembers your original login, and returns you to your usual login.

I was having problems with the popular User Switching plugin. Was searching for an alternative. And it seems I have found a better alternative in this Fast User Switching plugin. Does the job very well and also having extra features like 'recently switched users', 'switch by searching a user id', 'switch from Woo-commerce order page' etc. Very useful plugin without fuss.

This is a great quick tool to have as an admin! Saves so much time to just switch from the admin bar.

"user switching" plugin works, but doesn't have many settings and doesn't bundle a quick switch feature in the admin bar. This one does, and it works pretty well.

Works flawlessly (even in maintenance mode). If you need the perfect implementation of user switching. For customer service or any other role you choose, this is the best (currently the ONLY) adequate solution I've found. This is a developer that needs to be encouraged! So if you like this software as much as I do, donate! He deserves it~
