It is vital that your website is GDPR compliant - you don't want to get into any legal difficulties.

Yes it may seem like there is so much to understand, here's what you need to do to easily make your website GDPR compliant.

Here's the text that I put in my sidebar:

Hi Lynn, I've never heard about that plugin. Can you explain what it is?

Put in its simplest tosses up an alert that your visitors accept allowing you to collect data. It’s for European privacy law compliance. This was an extremely simplified answer.

Vicky it is a legal requirement that your website is GDPR compliant - it has to do with what information your website gathers about your readers private information.
The name of the plugin is GDPR which is required if you plan to do business wuth the European market. You must have it intalled through Wordpress and it is placed on your website.

When it's on your website, you are considered to be GDPR compliant.

The training explains more about the customers data, consents and more.

I heard that this plugin causes many sites to be hacked.

Is it safe for use?

Btw great training Lynne!

That was a previous version.
The plugin was updated within 24 hours of the exploit being exposed.
Don't worry - this kind of thing could have happened to any plugin.

Put it this way - it led to four of my sites being infected and I'm still using it now I've updated it to patch the flaw. :)

Please bear in mind that my sites got infected because I wasn't maintaining the sites at the time so they remained exposed for a few months. If I'd have updated my plugins regularly, I probably would have never had a problem.

Hi Danijel

I believe it is safe to use, I have never had any problems. Like Phil has said any plugin can be a security risk, especially if you don't update it regularly!
