When you install a WordPress plugin, you’re granting the plugin developer access to your site’s files. That means the plugin might be able to change or disable your WordPress settings, or even steal your site’s traffic.
Fortunately, there are some precautions you can take to minimize the risk of plugin abuse. For example, make sure you review the plugin’s permissions before installing it.
And if you’re not sure whether a plugin is safe to install, be sure to check the plugin’s WordPress.org plugin page.
But even with these precautions, it’s always best to be cautious. So if you’re considering installing a plugin, be sure to read the plugin’s reviews first.
And if you have any concerns, be sure to contact the plugin’s developer for more information.
In the end, it’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth installing a plugin. But be aware of the risks involved, and take the appropriate precautions to protect your site.
