Django Hijack

CI codecov PyPI

Screenshot of the notification seen while hijacking another user.

With Django Hijack, admins can log in and work on behalf of other users without having to know their credentials.


Docs are available on Read the Docs, both for v2.x and v3.x.


There are two versions available: v2.x and v3.x.

v3.x provides a security first design, easy integration, customisation, out-of-the-box Django admin support and dark-mode. It is a complete rewrite and all former APIs are broken.


I am using django-hijack on a project with hundreds of users, wonderful tool for support. Thank you!

This is a super useful tool. I have a site where I occasionally impersonating users to help troubleshoot their issues. This is a huge time saver.
