Support » Plugin: MyEffecto-Instant Emotion Reaction » This plugin COLLECTS YOUR PERSONAL PRIVATE INFORMATION

  • This plugin collects your IP and email address from your WordPress settings. They subsequently used these to send me spam asking why I deleted the plugin.

    They also, surreptitiously, created an account for me on their web site. And I believe they also collect all the “reactions” your blog will generate using their plugin.

    Some of this can be useful to some, but all this without advising, simply because I quickly tested a WordPress plugin, was not appreciated.

  • Good catch. That’s enough info for me to think twice about installing it.

    Hey guys, your feedback has helped us to improve the plugin further, we have added One-Time Authentication process to plugin, we didn’t add this process before because we don’t want to add extra step/process while our user use the plugin, but later you guys made us realize how necessary it is to have proper authentication process, hope you guys will forgive our mistakes in past.
