Support » Plugin: Google Analytics Dashboard Plugin for WordPress by MonsterInsights » Terrible privacy and security breaches

  • This was installed without my consent, probably bundled inside another shady plugin. I don’t care very much because I’m just replicating a client’s site on my own server and they have a lot of unneeded plugins, but this is one of the shadiest and most insecure things I have ever seen done by a plugin.

    If I ever had a doubt about whether to use this plugin or not, the doubt doesn’t exist anymore: NO WAY!!!!!!

    EDIT: Now I realize this is auto-installed by my client’s host, Hostgator

    We don’t install ourselves, so your hosting provider might do that, but that’s not us.

    If this is the case, if you could rename your title of the review that’d be good to indicate that, because its sort of misleading sounding, in terms of sounding like we had a security breach (we haven’t)
