GDPR cookie consent is the legal requirement to obtain consent before setting cookies on a user’s browser. The General Data Protection Regulation, in short GDPR, says that organizations that process the data of residents in the EU, need to get prior consent from the individuals. 

Cookies and other online identifiers are considered part of personal data under GDPR. Hence, website publishers are required to notify website visitors through a cookie banner and get consent before setting any cookies (except strictly necessary cookies) on their browsers.

Yes, your WordPress website needs to obtain cookie consent to be compliant with privacy regulations like the GDPR. In general, most WordPress websites use cookies. They are usually set by plugins and tools you use for analytics, contact forms, comments and so on. So, if your website has visitors from the EU, you must inform the users about cookies and obtain their consent, to comply with GDPR.

To enable cookie consent on your WordPress website, you should first install the  CookieYes GDPR Cookie Consent plugin and activate it. You will now have a cookie consent banner displayed on your website! You can then customize your banner, modify your settings and publish the changes. 

When the cookie banner is displayed, your visitors can give their consent preferences – accept, reject or give consent only for specific cookie categories. The plugin will auto-block third-party cookies from setting on their device until they provide explicit consent.

You can add a cookie consent banner on your WordPress website using CookieYes, with or without a plugin. CookieYes features a free WordPress cookie consent plugin and a free cookie consent web app that can be implemented on any website builder (CMS) or HTML website.

If you don’t want to install a plugin, you can head to and sign up for a free account. You can then customize your cookie banner and simply copy the code and paste it between the <head></head> tags in your WordPress theme. 

Here’s a guide on how to add a cookie banner to your WordPress website (without a plugin).
