According to the description and the screenshots, the plugin seems great. So, I installed it to test it out. But as soon as I try to access it on my admin page, I am nicely asked to “opt-in” to give some permissions, including name, email, URL, plugins installed, and other informations.
There is a “skip” button. The problem is that the skip button doesn’t skip anything. It just loops back to the same opt-in request.
Is this “opt-in” mandatory to use the plugin or is this a bug? (maybe even on my end?) I will update the review and note if it was only a bug, but for now, I find this a bit aggressive and invasive. I just would like to be able to test the plugin.
EDIT: When wanting to deactivate the plugin, one option in the feedback request is “I don’t like to share my information with you”, and you’re shown when selecting it: “You might have missed it, but you don’t have to share any data and can just skip the opt-in. Click here to use the plugin anonymously”. It sends you back to the same window with the skip button seemingly not working. But it would imply it is indeed a bug (I didn’t try to click on “accept” to see if that works)
