Making Your WordPress Site GDPR Compliant, Google Fonts, reCAPTCHA

Europe and Specialty Germany are very aware of the privacy policy. Honestly, it is a good thing.

Yes, it is annoying it brings us so much work but it is what it is. Big web giants tracking us and using that data without content and selling us to other big web giants.

So how do we stop it?

Google Font

It depends on the situation. If you are using the google fonts you can make your fonts local with OMGF plugin.

This plugin works with most of the popular themes and page builders. When the site loads font from google it caches in the wp-content downloads it and serves it. So after first load fonts load from your server not from google. Awesome !

Google reCAPTCHA

If you are using reCAPTCHA for spam or anything. You can use honeypot method to stop spams. Honeypot method works with contact forms and page builder forms aswell. It works as hidden fake field for bots. Bots are stupid they don’t know what input field real or not and they fill this honeypot field and the plugin stops the form send. Easy.

Add a honeypot input field in your preferred form plugin or builder plugin and install this plugin with it.

This plugin reads the honeypot input fields if it detects the spam bot it will stop it. It works with contactform 7 and most of the page builder forms. Check the plugin page to see all list.

Google Maps

For google maps, it is a bit complicated. I wrote a snippet for that solution check that out.
