When users consent to the policy, the date and their IP address will be recorded.
Note: The System – Privacy Consent Plugin is just one step in this process. It does not make your site legally compliant.
The System – Privacy Consent plugin is installed with the Joomla 3.9 updated, but it is set to Disabled. To enable and confiure the plugin, go to Extensions –> Plugins, and search Privacy.
Click on System – Privacy Consent to configure the plugin.
On this page, you can customize the settings for the plugin.
- Privacy Article – If you have a long policy, you can create an article here, which will display as a popup to the user. This can be left blank if you do not need to create a longer policy article.
- Redirect Message – This is the text that will appear when your existing users log in to your site for the first time after the plugin is enabled. You can use the default wording that is provided, or customize with your own text.
- Finally, set the plugin as Enabled, and click Save and Close.
