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:

GDPR Request Form

[wpgdprc_access_request_form]

Data found will be sent to your email address and allow you to put in additional request to have the data anonymized.

Thanks for that information about GDPR Compliance. But when it unloaded to my website it appeared at the bottom of my site but it's very large. Any suggestions for that?

Then you have added it to your footer widget and not your sidebar widget.

Thanks for the informative post, LynneHuy! Much grateful! You've provided a vital piece of information on what no site owner can do without which is making a site GDPR compliant. Thanks for the post!

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!
