UPDATE: 28th April 2021, The cookie widget has been saved! Thanks to a man named Stef the Metomic Cookie Widget has relaunched as Confirmic. All of the amazing features mentioned below have remained with more in the pipeline. It's great to hear the cookie widget will live on, there really isn't anything better 👍
Why You Need a Cookie Consent Plugin
Why Metomic (now Confirmic)
Hands down, Confirmic is the best cookie consent plugin we've come across. The key features that set it apart are:
Autoblocking: The killer feature! If you've ever played around with cookie consent plugins before you'll know half of them don't actually do anything (even if they look like they do). Confirmic has an incredible autoblocking feature that prevents scripts from being triggered, based on a user's selection, without you having to do anything. It even works for tracking contained in Google Tag Manager!
Google Tag Manager Integration: Additionally, Confirmic also fires a custom event for Google Tag Manager, which makes it super simple to respect user cookie preferences for tracking that can't be automatically blocked.
Micropolicies: Third-party tracking can be grouped into micropolicies for simple unambiguous user consent.
Looks Great! Enough said.
