    Hello,

    Currently working on my privacy declaration, I have seen that LoignPress uses a cookie. In order to understand whether it is compliant and what to say about that cookie, could you please let me know

    – whether it can be set to work without the cookie
    – whether the cookie is technically necessary
    – what is the content of the cookie (what does it store)
    – hoow long does the cookie exist?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi @luckilyhappy

    May I know where do you see, LoginPress is using Cookies?

    I double checked and talked to my developers as well. We are not using any cookies in LoginPress.

    Looking forward!

    Hi Adnan, thank you for your response. I have not seen it since I asked the question (after numerous further scans in more recent days). But I did a scan for cookies before I asked, and the cookie “loginpress_bg” was shown. Because of the name, I could only assume it was from LoginPress. Actually, I reflected upon where it might come from and removed the session expiration that was set. Afterwards, I have not seen the cookie again. Perhaps it may be linked to that? Are you sure it is not a cookie set by LoginPress? But, then, why the name?

    If you google for it, you can find a variety of sites which are naming that cookie in their cookie policy .You could have a look whether they are using LoginPress. If the cookie is not set by your plugin, is it possible that it is set in the context of the expiration setting by another plugin, yet named after your plugin? That might be worth investigating and having changed?

    In any case, I would be interested in what you will find out.

    Hey, @luckilyhappy

    Here’re the final words on this topic.
    “loginpress_bg” is not a cookie, it is a LocalStorage value being stored for LoginPress customizer background image view.
    It’ll only occur when someone is using the customizer in the backend with admin rights or customizer access.
    We didn’t get any information from the client/user with this local storage.

    Thank you.
