How to log into your Squarespace account using the ESC key
There's quite a bit of cool things that I've learned in the 2 years that I've been on Squarespace, and I think with this new year, It's time to really unleash all of my knowledge about the platform.
One of the cool, but basic, things I've come to learn is how I was able to log in to my website just by using they 'ESC' key on my keyboard. I'll show you how to do it below.

01 | Enable the ‘Esc’ key
Before we can begin doing anything… Sign into your Squarespace account as normal. Once you’re logged in and have selected the website you wish to access, you’ll arrive at the main dashboard screen.
On that screen, you’ll want to find and click on the settings of that specific website.
Scroll down a tad bit until you get to the website section of the settings tab. Find the ‘Advanced’ tab and click on that.
Then find the ‘esc key’ tab and click on that.
You’ll end up at the following screen pictured below Make sure you’ve got the esc key enabled. This is what’s going to make it work!
Once you’re done, you can X out of the entire tab and you’ll move on to the next step to try it out.
02 | Login with ‘Esc’ Key
Open up a new tab and type in your websites URL. In this case, I used my own (duh!)
Once you’re on your site, just tap the ‘Esc’ Key on your keyboard. VOILA! You’re all logged into your site!
Just a quick recap of the instructions above:
MAIN DASHBOARD > SETTINGS > ADVANCED > ESC KEY > ENABLE
