    Required: Yes
Defined at:

Helper function for adding content to the postbox shown when editing the privacy policy.

Plugins and themes should suggest text for inclusion in the site's privacy policy. The suggested text should contain information about any functionality that affects user privacy, and will be shown in the Suggested Privacy Policy Content postbox.

A plugin or theme can use this function multiple times as long as it will help to better present the suggested policy content. For example modular plugins such as WooCommerse or Jetpack can add or remove suggested content depending on the modules/extensions that are enabled.

Intended for use with the 'admin_init' action.


function wp_add_privacy_policy_content( $plugin_name, $policy_text ) {
	if ( ! class_exists( 'WP_Privacy_Policy_Content' ) ) {
		require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/misc.php' );

	WP_Privacy_Policy_Content::add( $plugin_name, $policy_text );
