No Email, IP and URL for WordPress Comments

No Email, IP and URL for WordPress Comments is a quite simple plugin to remove Email and Website fields from comments area and to stop collecting the commenter’s IP address.
Also disables comment system cookie and empties comment notes text.┬áIt is also automatically switching the “Comment author must fill out name and email” option in Settings -> Discussion when “Remove Email field” option is switched, because these 2 aren’t compatible.

The plugin is actually a collection of snippets developed over time and conveniently combined in a single plugin, aiding to quickly make the comment section compliant with the latest GDPR regulations.

Now including a settings page to selectively disable or enable any of these WordPress Comments features as needed.

Also compatible with WooCommerce, made sure it removes the Email field from reviews as well.

This is how the settings page looks:
