We explain to you why a nulled download of Real Cookie Banner can have drastic consequences for you and your website and why you should rather keep your hands off it.
What is a Nulled WordPress Plugin?
A so-called “nulled plugin” is a modified version of the original plugin that is basically offered free of charge. Sounds great at first. But be careful, because nulled versions are not without risk. They may contain malicious code that collects information about you and your website visitors without your knowledge. Nulled plugins do not come from the developers of the original plugin, but from third parties – possibly even from pirates.
Are Nulled Plugins Legal?
Generally speaking, WordPress plugins from a source other than the developer’s website do not always have to be illegal downloads. It is not very likely that an armed special task force will kick down your door if you use a nulled plugin on your website. This is because of the GPL licence, which allows programmes that cost money to be copied and distributed for free. Therefore, it may be legal for nulled WordPress plugins to be offered.
However, it happens that many WordPress developers do not place all components of the plugin under the GPL licence – e.g. graphics or translations. These can only be used in the way they were licensed. Furthermore, trademark rights can also play a major role. These lead to nulled versions not being allowed to be named like the original plugin.
❌ Hands off illegal plugin downloads
Even though a nulled version is not necessarily illegal, this does not mean that you can safely use it on your WordPress website. Besides the risk of malware, using a hacked version of e.g. Real Cookie Banner can have a variety of negative consequences.
🔓 Security vulnerabilities
Legal certainty and Real Cookie Banner are an inseparable dream team. Therefore, it is more than contradictory to use the privacy plugin Real Cookie Banner in a nulled version. If you still decide to use a nulled version, you may face significant problems. Nulled plugins often contain malware and thus make your website a target for hacker attacks. In addition to malicious code, there is also the possibility that spam links and redirects to questionable websites are embedded in your website without your knowledge.
👥 Privacy Issues
You want to use Real Cookie Banner to protect the privacy of your users? But you want to use a nulled version at the same time? Opposites attract, as we all know, but not in this case. If you value the protection of private data (both yours and that of your website visitors) you should avoid using nulled plugins and themes. Nulled versions can lead to data theft (e.g. usernames, bank details and passwords), financial consequences and mistrust. In addition, you may have to report such attacks to authorities.
👎 No Support
One thing is clear: If you use a hacked, free version of Real Cookie Banner, you cannot expect us to help you with advice and support. Of course, we are always happy to help, but only if you are using a valid Real Cookie Banner licence 😇 We design our plugins to be very beginner-friendly. However, individual questions may arise from time to time – and even Google can’t come up with a solution for every problem. So to save you a lot of despair, headaches and work, you should not use a nulled version of Real Cookie Banner.
🔄 No Updates
Another risk of nulled plugins is the lack of essential updates. You would have to manually delete the nulled plugin each time, then search for an existing, new version and install it. And as if that wasn’t enough work, there is also the risk of potential hacker attacks. Even if you find a free nulled version including the latest updates, it may also contain malicious software. In addition, we may release important security updates that you don’t notice right away. Another security vulnerability.
⚖️ Legal Issues
Because of the GPL licence, not every nulled WordPress plugin is illegal. In the case of Real Cookie Banner, we have not placed all components of the plugin under the GPL licence. Therefore, you would always be downloading a pirated copy! Consequently, you may face expensive legal proceedings and high legal fees. Furthermore, ransomware can hide in the nulled plugin. It encrypts the data of your website and can blackmail you to release the data again. You can then only do the following: Either pay the hacker or confess to the police that you used a pirated copy.
📊 Bad SEO ranking
We’re not the only ones who don’t like it when you use a free, cracked version of Real Cookie Banner. Google and other search engines don’t like it either. Nulled versions of Real Cookie Banner can hide spam links and dubious redirects. So using them can lead to a lower ranking, de-indexing and further SEO penalties faster than you’d like because you’re practicing blackhat SEO methods. And now imagine that you have invested a lot of time and work in optimizing your website to achieve a top position in the ranking. All that would be for nothing… So, a legal licence doesn’t sound so bad anymore.
🖥️ Bad User Experience
Another disadvantage of nulled plugins can be a bad user experience. Without your knowledge, hackers can serve ads to your website visitors (for example, in the form of banners). As a result, important ranking factors such as time spent on your website, conversion rate and page load time can be negatively affected. Bad SEO ranking and a decrease in sales can be possible consequences.
