I just noticed on the Wordpress dashboard for comments on my website the column headed "GDPR Accepted On". I see that most of my replies and many of the comments are labeled "Not Accepted". What is the significance of this? Should I be concerned? For what it is worth I use the WP GDPR Compliance plugin.

Thanks.
Joe

I notice that my replies are "Not Accepted" whereas almost all the original comments have the time indicated for acceptance.

My answer would be the same as Diane's based on your question

Hi - have you only just added the plugin? It asks people to tick the box saying "By using this form you agree with the storage and handling of your data by this website". If you have only recently added it, then obviously previous visitors won't have had the opportunity to accept the agreement.

Thanks. I added the plugin quite a while back. I do have the box you indicate there for commenters to tick. I'll check the other settings to see if I can find any problems.

Hi Joe,
if you just have installed the plugin it means all those comments and replies haven't been compliant before you installed the plugin that's why they are Not Accepted.
Hope it helps.
