• This plugin should be REMOVED from the repo as it takes your information WITHOUT PERMISSION OR NOTICE and creates an account for you at the author’s website. I did nothing but DEACTIVATE the plugin on a client’s website and it created an account for me because I was the logged-in user! I didn’t even install it – the client did! All I did was deactivate it. I never interacted with it in ANY way – i.e. I never looked at the settings or anything.

    Hello,

    Greetings from Tagembed.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. At Tagembed, customer privacy and data security are our highest priorities. The intention behind automatically creating an account upon installation was to offer a seamless user experience. However, we now realize this approach violated privacy guidelines by not obtaining explicit user consent.

    In response to your feedback and the WordPress review team’s requirements, we have implemented significant updates to our plugin. Users are now required to register after installing the plugin, ensuring full transparency and consent. Additionally, we’ve made several other enhancements to strengthen user privacy and security.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused. Your feedback has been invaluable in helping us improve our plugin, and we are committed to continuously enhancing its safety and functionality for all users.

    Thank you for your understanding and for helping us create a better experience.

    Best regards,
    The Tagembed Team
