Does WordPress use cookies?

Yes. WordPress does use cookies. WordPress is a very popular Content Management System, used to provide website content for over 15 million websites. WordPress uses cookies for two purposes:

  1. Registered members need a cookie to be able to log in. This is 'strictly necessary' as WordPress won't work without it.
  2. Visitors who leave a comment on a blog post will also have a cookie set on their computer. This is not "strictly necessary" as it's a user preference.

Not just that, many WordPress website owners also use Google Analytics to track how their website is used. If you use plugins on your WordPress website then chances are one of those also uses cookies, so you should perform a cookie audit - see this guide on how to check your website for cookies in 5 minutes. If you have a WordPress website, you will need to take action to ensure you comply with the EU GDPR Law.
