How to add a GDPR cookie banner to WordPress

cookie banner wordpress

If you’re here, you probably have a WordPress site and need to display a cookie banner in order to comply with laws like the GDPR, the ePrivacy (Cookie Law) and the CCPA.

🔍 Did you know this?

  • Not only must the banner inform users about cookies, it should also block all cookie scripts from running before obtaining user’s consent.
  • If you target Californian users, the notice should also contain the CCPA “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” opt-out link.

🚀 Luckily, our cookie consent plugin for WordPress simplifies and manages all of these compliance requirements within a few clicks!

Let’s take a quick look at how to set it up.

💡 Our All-in-one Compliance for GDPR / CCPA Cookie Consent plugin is specifically designed for WordPress.
Very little effort is required for setting it up. Based on your answers to a few questions and after a quick scan of your website, it is generated automatically with the best configuration settings!
