    Hi,

    First, thanks for your plugin !

    I have a question about collecting IP address when someone submit a message :
    first : why ?
    And what do you think about create an admin option to disable this collect ?

    Thanks,

    Hi Marie,

    The collection of IP address was always a part of my form, I thought it was a nice addition. That’s it. But it’s personal data. And the GDPR is coming…

    So I think I will remove it, because I don’t think many users need this. Or I will add an option to disable this, as you suggested.

    You don’t want it? IP address is personal data, but so is name and email..

    Hi,

    Yes I don’t want it simply because I don’t need it in this context, and that I can not justify this collection.

    It will be nice if you can make it optional.

    Thanks for you response.

    Hi Marie,

    There will be an option on the settingspage, to disable IP address. Gonna update plugin today or tomorrow.

    Thanks, this is a nice addition to my plugin.
