The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation implemented by the European Union to protect the privacy of the personal data of individuals within the EU.

The regulation requires companies to take steps to protect the privacy of personal data and to obtain explicit consent from individuals before collecting, processing or storing their data.

In the context of WordPress, the GDPR affects website owners and developers who collect and process personal data, such as contact form submissions, comments, and user registrations.

To comply with the GDPR, WordPress website owners must provide a privacy policy that outlines how personal data is collected, processed, and stored. They must also obtain explicit consent from users before collecting their personal data and provide a way for users to access, modify, and delete their data.

WordPress offers several tools and plugins to help website owners comply with the GDPR, such as the ability to export and delete user data, cookie consent plugins, and privacy policy generators.

WordPress also offers guidance and best practices for GDPR compliance, such as recommending the use of secure passwords and two-factor authentication to protect user data.
