WPTavern: Jetpack 6.1, Now With Even More Privacy Information

WPTavern: Jetpack 6.1, Now With Even More Privacy Information

Jetpack 6.1 is available and is considered a general maintenance release. This version adds two improvements to the WordAds module. Users can now use the [wordads] shortcode to place an inline ad on any post or page. Support for the ads.txt file has also been added.

A new filter is available that honors the Do Not Track feature. This filter only affects the Stats module and will not track visitors who have Do Not Track enabled. This filter may be exposed as a setting in the UI in a future update.

Sharing and Likes functionality has been removed from WooCommerce’s Cart, Checkout, and Account pages. Notices that appeared in log files related to language features on sites running PHP 7.2 have been fixed.

Continuing the progress made in Jetpack 6.0 towards GDPR compliance, 6.1 adds More Info buttons to every module that handles user data.

The More Info buttons contain links to specific sections of support documents that describe whether or not the module is activated by default, what data is used for site owners and visitors, and what data is synchronized with WordPress.com.


More Info Links in Jetpack


Detailed Privacy Information for The WordPress.com Toolbar Module

In the example above, the Privacy Information link for the WordPress.com Toolbar module points to the following support document. With all of this information now readily available, users can educate themselves on the privacy implications of each module and decide what’s best for their visitors.

A full changelog of Jetpack 6.1 is available on WordPress.org.
