Jetpack 6.0 Adds GDPR Compliance Features

We’re just over a month away from the introduction of the GDPR and your business should be well on the way to finalising their compliancy strategy. Remember that you must have any new privacy features in place by the time the regulations are introduced on May 25th. If you’re not sure whether your business needs to make any changes to the way they record and store data, we shared a post on GDPR for businesses that’s a good starting point.

You’re also likely to see a number of changes from a consumer point of view and an example of this is with the latest release of Jetpack, one of the most used and best loved WordPress plugins. The new version, Jetpack 6.0, has taken its own steps towards GDPR compliancy with a new set of privacy features.

Jetpack 6.0 features a separate privacy settings page that includes functionality for users to opt out of activity tracking and also provides links to two privacy documents: Automattic Privacy Policy and What Data Does Jetpack Sync?

We imagine we’ll be seeing a great deal more updates to our favourite plugins over the coming month, so don’t be surprised if your inbox contains many more notifications of updated privacy settings and requests to opt into subscriptions.
