Support » Plugin: User Menus - Nav Menu Visibility » Secure user data?

    So I inherited a website that is using this plugin to hide menus and options from anyone who isn’t a logged in user. That part seems to work fine. But Google robots got in and cataloged all of this data somehow and private user data was sent to the internet search engines (user names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and the like)! Is this truly how this plugin works? If so, there is nothing secured here! What am I missing?

    @gwledford – Only way that is possible is a misconfigured cache, but that wouldn’t have anything to do with our plugin as any info rendered and then cached would be served to any subsequent requests.

    Otherwise our plugin simply shows content based on the currently logged in user, but we don’t determine that, WP does. So if google is indexing logged in user content, either google is logged in to your site, or getting copies of the site that were cached when a user was logged in.

    Hope that helps.

    @gwledford – Also it should be noted, we don’t offer options for displaying anything other than name & email, so if you are considering us as the source of printing address/phone that is a 100% impossible.
