#44153 new enhancement

Plugin privacy polices and admin notification

Reported by: sterndata Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.9.6
Component: Privacy Keywords: needs-patch ux-feedback
Focuses: administration Cc:


If a plugin adds a privacy policy by hooking wp_add_privacy_policy_content(), the information shows up on example.com/wp-admin/tools.php?wp-privacy-policy-guide=1.

However, there's no link on the dashboard menu (esp settings->privacy) regarding that.

Settings->privacy does say "Need help putting together your new Privacy Policy page? Check out our guide for recommendations on what content to include, along with policies suggested by your plugins and theme." with a link in the text, but it's quite obscure.

How about a 2nd line: If any plugins or themes have available privacy policies, you'll find them [link]herelink. You can them use them on your own privacy policy page.
