Several problems, no response from the developer
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin has several problems:

When you remove a user from having automatic friends, all their friend connections will disappear, even those which have not been generated by the plugin. That means that the friend count will go to zero.

Also, this plugin allows ANY user to have automatic friends, even subscribers. That promotes SPAM.

The developer does not revise the support forum, and his few responses are usually unhelpful.

Works perfectly!

The plugin works perfectly. I do have a feature request for an upcoming update: allowing users to become automatic friends within selected Buddypress groups. It would help a TON with controlling privacy issues.
