Why would I need this?

I personally needed it to delete dated/forgotten plugins that posed a security risk by keeping around. Having a large number of different sites in a network, it’s sometimes hard to determine which plugins are being used where. This plugin clearly highlights which plugins are not being used at all.

> "...if you are not using a specific plugin, delete it from the system."

When wordpress network installations get large and you want to know what’s where and what’s not needed, this plugin is the simplest solution.

Can I use it on a single installation instead of a network?

No, just go to “Plugins” in the admin.


Works as described!

Easily see your entire WordPress network, break down what's-where and who's-using-what or get more specific solving questions like > "Who's using this plugin?" > "Which plugins are unused? Which are safe to delete? Simple and easy for network admins.
