A good cookie consent plugin provides an easy way to make your website (more) compliant with the European Cookie Law / AVG. We include such a plugin with our hosting, but maybe you want to add one yourself.
In that case, the following plugins are some popular choices:
- Cookie Notice For GDPR & CCPA by Hu-manity.co
- GDPR Cookie Compliance by Moove
- Real Cookie Banner by devowl.io
However, which one is the best choice for you will depend on the tools you use on your website. Moreover, the GDPR legislation is a complicated one. For example, in 2022 a German website was penalized for using Google Fonts for their typography without complying with GDPR regulations. Google Fonts is a service that many European websites also use, so many sites would be out of compliance as a result. We find that not every cookie plugin takes this into account. Whether this causes problems will depend on your website.
In any case, at WPorters, we make sure that sites comply with current GDPR standards. To do this, we use, among other things, the most optimal cookie consent WordPress plugin of the moment, which is a changing fact. This service is included by default with our hosting. And if you want us to take a look at your website’s GDPR compliance we can do this for you too.
