    First of all, never just hand someone an Administrator account your site unless it’s absolutely the only way and you accept the consequences. You’re basically giving them the keys to all of your work, and they could do anything from fix the problem to leaving behind malware to even taking down the whole the site.

    If the developers must see the problem in action and have full access to a site with the problem, it would be best to try to reproduce the problem on a separate installation first. If you can reproduce the problem on the separate installation, then it would be fine to give them Administrator access via Users > Add New in that site’s Dashboard.

    If you absolutely must give someone access to your main site, get a signed contract from them first, implement some sort of logging like https://wordpress.org/plugins/aryo-activity-log/ (which an Administrator could still disable, keep that in mind), and only provide the lowest necessary role: https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities#Capability_vs._Role_Table
