Do I need to code themes or plugins?

Absolutely not. It’s really plug’n play

Does it block cookies before they’re explicitly accepted by user?

Sure, you can choose opt-in or opt-out mode to let it work as you wish.

Does it use jQuery?

No, you can be safe from plugins conflict. It’s been developed using Cookies Enabler Js Library developed by Nicholas Ruggeri:

What about other cookies not supported natively?

You can enable Custom JS & Iframe url to add any javascript/iframe you need to manage and block.

Is compatible with multilanguage websites?

Yes, actually you we have 2 addons for multilanguages: wpml and polylang. Ask to our support forum for custom requestes


It works fine

It works fine

A nice to have feature where to Log but without Ip Adresses to see how much say Yes to Cookies

Really good!

Great plugin. Needs to fix some debug notices on first install and configuration (I’m a plugin author I still fight with them every day so they’re not a problem to me).

Good, really good!


Very good plugin

I like so much the support for WPML, i tested it and the multilanguage works well.
If can be included the block for __cfduid cookie (Cloudflare) will be perfect.

buon plugin, manca poco ad essere perfetto 😀

(scrivo in italiano)
Lo sto testando e mi sembra quasi perfetto.
Sarebbe molto bello che ci fosse la possibilità per l’utente di modificare il suo consenso, come avviene per altri plugin.
Inoltre, servirebbe, forse, poter cancellare solo un contatto e non tutti.
Mi sembra che ad oggi si cancellino tutti.

Comunque grazie di aver sviluppato un plugin gratuito… perchè in giro se ne trovano pochi :/
Spero possiate fare queste piccole modifiche 😀

Perhaps not compatible to GDPR

The plugin itself is quite perfect und does what it is supposed to do, BUT …
… the plugin logs the complete IP-adress of the visitor, the date of the visit, the visited page and the cookie-choice the user made. I don’t think that this is allowed by the GDPR, so european customer should possibly be careful using this plugin, or am I completely wrong?

I like the opt-in approach

Most of the cookie plug-ins I found so far simply inform the website visitors about cookies – but they have no choice and cannot reject these cookies.

This plug-in however supports an opt-in approach, which makes it quite unique.

I’m not sure if this will be enough for GPDR (which requires also a simple way to withdraw a cookie consent), but it’s closer to GDPR compliance than standard cookie notifications.
