This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

GDPR Cookie Consent Banner


GDPR Cookie Consent Banner is one of the simplest and most popular cookie consent plugins out there. Compliance with data privacy regulations like the GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive has never more attainable. Simply install our plugin and modify your settings, and you’ll have a live cookie consent banner and cookie policy on your site that will help you comply with all of the latest data privacy regulations. GDPR Cookie Consent Banner has been actively developed and supported since 2012, and has over 100 5-star reviews.

New in 2.3.0:
Geo IP support – choose which continents to display notifications (requires GeoIP Detect plugin to be installed)
New in 2.2.0:
Easily select pages or posts where the cookie notification doesn’t display. You now have complete control over which pages display a notification and which don’t.
Close on scroll – optionally choose scrolling as closure method.

Simple set up

One of the most popular aspects of this plugin is its ease of use – simply install and activate the plugin to automatically add the cookie consent notification bar. There is no need to configure it. Upon activation, the plugin will create and populate a page on your website with information about your cookie policy. Your consent banner will also automatically link to the newly-created cookie policy page from the notification bar. So if you use the default settings, it takes only seconds to get up and running.

EU ePrivacy Directive

We think this is the simplest but most effective method of dealing with the legislation.

The plug-in is a straightforward approach to help you comply with the EU regulations regarding usage of website cookies. A user to your site is presented with a clear, yet unobtrusive notification that the site is using cookies, and may then acknowledge and dismiss the notification, or click to find out more. The plug-in automatically creates a new page with pre-populated information on cookies and how to disable them, which you may edit further if you wish.

Importantly, the plug-in does not disable cookies on your site or prevent the user from continuing to browse the site.

सामान्य प्रश्न

Where can I find out more about this plug-in?

You can find out more about the plug-in on its plug-in page.

Is there a demo of this plugin?

Yes, feel free to have a look at the demo here. You can reset the cookie by going to this URL.

Will this plugin make me compliant with data privacy legislation like the GDPR?

The short answer is no, this plugin alone will not make you compliant. Compliance with data privacy regulations requires certain efforts on the part of the user that a single plugin alone cannot provide.

Where can I find out more information about the EU laws regarding the use of cookies?

You can find more details on the regulations on the Information Commissioner’s Office site.

Can I customize this plugin?

Yes, we offer many customization options, from the position of your banner, to the color of the banner, buttons, and text.

The name of this plugin is quite misleading. GDPR law requires all non-essential cookies to be disabled by default when a user enter the site for the first time. The user must be given the option to then enable cookies, or continue accessing the site with the cookies disabled. The plugin developer has even stated that the plugin does not stop any cookies from working on the site. Essentially all this plugin is as a popup maker and has nothing to do with GDPR.

It works well, but I miss a way to make a line break after the text (before the "read more" link)

The plugin will install and activate, but none of the customizations will work. It was also a nightmare to deactivate as it embedded into my site in a way that deactivating and deleting would return an error. I had to go in via FTP and manually delete the entire plugin directory.

If you want to exclude a country, just make sure that in the GeoIP Detection plugin, you select "Add a country-specific CSS class to the <body>-Tag." Developer: Please keep this awesome plugin updated! Thanks for a job well done!!!
