Does it have a configuration menu?

No! You just need to active and it’s working.


works perfectly, as advertised

This is a plugin for the time when you hit “New Post” and use the online editor. It doesn’t inject the ‘private’ visibility at the time of making of the post, so it can’t work when using the WP apps. But it works perfectly as advertised.
