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 Visitor Consent


Allow users to have control of what scripts are loaded.

Scripts are grouped together (Required, Marketing, Analytics, etc). You can also lock a group, so that a user cannot disable a script within that group (think WordPress or Stripe cookies).

We strongly encourage you to perform an audit of you site to find out what scripts may be tracking users. Scripts that track users could include such things as: analytics scripts, CRM scripts, tracking pixels, and more.

Use the shortcode [gdpr_visitor_consent] to create a user preferences page. Using this shortcode, a user can change their GDPR preferences at a later date.

Developer API

You can add your script in a dropdown in the admin screen using the filter gdprvc_third_party_script( $scripts );

Example (PHP):

function add_third_party_script( $scripts ) {

    $scripts[] = array(
        'slug'  => 'third-party-script',
        'label' => 'Script Label',

    return $scripts;

add_filter( 'gdprvc_third_party_scripts', 'add_third_party_script', 10, 1 );

You can then use the JavaScript API in the browser to control your scripts on the front-end

Example (JavaScript):

window.gdprvc_is_accepted( 'slug' );

// returns true/false

You can also use our helper function to parse your script containing <script> and <img> tags. This will automatically place your JavaScript in a conditional and remove src attributes until a user has consented.

Example (PHP):

add_action( 'wp_head', 'your_wp_head' );

function your_wp_head() {
    // Check for GDPR Visitor Consent Plugin
    if ( function_exists( 'gdprvc_parse_script' ) ) {
        echo gdprvc_parse_script( 'your script as a string', 'slug' );
    // Echo normally if plugin is not active
    echo 'your script as a string';

Does this plugin control scripts from other plugins?

GDPR Visitor Consent provides an API for third-party developers to integrate their scripts into this plugin.

What happens if I add a new script after I have already published my scripts?

Simply check “Force users to re-consent” before saving your scripts. This will force users who have already saved their preferences to opt-in to your new scripts. Re-consenting still loads a user’s previous preferences.

Will this work with page caching?

As of version 1.1.0, yes! GDPR Visitor Consent is JavaScript-based and uses the localStorage API.

What html tags are supported?

You may insert <script> tags and <img> tags. Sometimes, <img> tags are surrounded by <noscript>. This works, too.
