Exit Notifier is a WordPress plugin that provides a notice whenever someone clicks a link to another site, as per compliance guidelines.
Download the plugin.
You can download the plugin from the WordPress Plugin Directory: https://wordpress.org/plugins/exit-notifier.
Why this plugin?
A recommendation came to a client of mine who is subject to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance to add what they called a “speed bump” upon clicking a link that will take the user away from the client’s website. I searched and found nothing that did what I was wanting to do, so here it is. I have a lot of Credit Unions using the plugin too.
How do I use it?
Installing “Exit Notifier” can be done either by searching for “Exit Notifier” via the “Plugins > Add New” screen in your WordPress dashboard, or by using the following steps:
1. Download the plugin via WordPress.org
2. Upload the ZIP file through the ‘Plugins > Add New > Upload’ screen in your WordPress dashboard
3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
