  • Resolved MrMattEastwood


    Hello, Complianz team!

    Just wanted to let you know that on all the websites I build, the scanner always detects these two cookies:


    None of these have any information associated with them on, and I was unable to find any further info about them online.

    Here’s the set of plugins I use on all of my projects:

    All-in-One WP Migration
    All-in-One WP Migration Unlimited Extension
    Assistant (
    Beaver Builder Plugin (Standard Version)
    Search & Replace (
    Complianz | GDPR/CCPA Cookie Consent (free version)
    Contact Form 7
    Disable Gutenberg
    Favicon by RealFaviconGenerator
    GP Premium (belongs to GeneratePress theme)
    Shield (
    Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder
    Rank Math

    I used Yoast before switching to Rank Math last month. The cookies were discovered then, too.

    Perhaps these are false positives? Either way, I have trouble explaining them in my cookie policy. 🙂

    Do you know anything about them? Let me know if you need any further info. I’ll be happy to make you a user account on one of my projects.

    Hi @mrmatteastwood,

    I visited some pages on your site and I did not detect these two cookies on the front-end. I did find that the icwp-wpsf cookie must be from the ‘Shield’ plugin (ICWP stands for ‘IcontrolWP’, who created the plugin).

    It seems that these two cookies are not placed with front-end users of your site, and therefore don’t need to be explained on your Cookie Policy. You can uncheck the ‘display on Cookie Policy’ checkbox in the Complianz wizard, under Cookies -> Used Cookies.

    You can confirm my test (also for your other sites) by visiting your sites incognito or using a browser with cookies cleared, and then right-click -> inspect -> Application -> cookies, local storage and session storage.

    For more information on this subject, also read our article about cookie scan results.

    Kind regards,

    Hey Leon, thanks for your quick and detailed reply. I was not aware of that article in your knowledgebase, it’s very helpful!

    Gonna remove those cookies from the policy, then.
