The privacy laws in Europe have been heavily affected by the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR). In order to keep in compliance with that law, most websites have provided options for privacy issues. Joomla 3.9x websites are no exception. The following article will show you how to enable the privacy notification for users of your Joomla! site.
How to Enable the Privacy Notification for Users in Joomla 3.9+
- In order to enable the privacy plugin that is loaded with Joomla 3.9+, you will need to be logged into the Joomla Administrator Dashboard. Log in to Joomla with your Administrator user.
- Click on Users in the menu at the top of the screen
- Scroll down the menu until you see Privacy and click on it.
