Well, in this article, I’ll dwell into a bit more detail and will list the best WordPress plugins that will surely help you in making your life easier in making your WordPress blog GDPR compliant.
In this article, we will stick to those plugins which offer a wider range of compliance and address multiple requirements so that you don’t have to install more than one plugins.
Note: Though at the time of writing this article, the plugins mentioned below are free of charge but owing to the capricious nature of the internet, it’s quite possible that the plugins in the list below may have started charging something. So I’d recommend to check out the pricing policy of these plugins by following the respective links.
Now, without any further ado, let’s start our list

However, before concluding this article, let me reiterate this caution one more time. I believe that this has become more of a cliche but since the disclosure is important, I don’t mind mentioning it an extra time.
