You don’t need CloudFlare account credentials for using plugin but you do need to have Cloudflare service active on your domain in order for plugin to get Geolocation user data and enabled Cloudflare IP Geolocation.

How to enable Cloudflare IP Geolocation

Will this plugin work with other Caching plugins?

Frankly we don’t know yet. As of v1.3 new HTTP header is added when redirection is enabled (Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate) but it’s on cache plugin to honor this setting

LiteSpeed Cache plugin workaround if redirection is not working

This issue is fixed by adding new rule to your .htaccess file before ## LITESPEED WP CACHE PLUGIN section

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* – [E=Cache-Control:vary=%{HTTP:CF-IPCountry}]

Very appreciated to the developer for his plugin and support! This is the the best free solution for wp + Cloudflare with such functionality. The upcoming update comes with new mega features! Very recommend! Try by yourself, you'll get what I mean. All preferences are user-friendly, the plugin is lightweight with high code quality. Thank you so much!!!

I tried a couple of redirect plugins but this was the only one that worked as expected. Tech support is superb cause they made it work perfectly in a multisite and LSCache enabled. Thank you so much for everything

Plain and simple. CloudFlare IP Geolocation enabled. Plugin set up and settings saved. Country detected correctly and displayed on plugin settings page. Redirection not happening (no matter whether it's 307 or 301). Shame. Will have to do it by hand in .htaccess
