I’m on v6.5.4. Installed the plugin, started it going with default settings, and immediately all visitors who weren’t logged-in users received a “critical error” message. This may be down to the WordPress version (untested, in fairness) or another plugin causing incompatibility but I don’t have time to tinker. A shame as it would definitely have helped with some ongoing issues!
