2 Clicks For More Privacy (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and XING)

Ensure the privacy of your website visitors with the social media button integration extension. This solution protects personal data and enhances user privacy by only activating social media buttons upon user interaction. Unlike traditional integrations, where social media services collect data upon page loading, our system requires active engagement from the visitor before any data transmission occurs.

When users first land on a page, they are presented with lightweight placeholder images instead of the actual social media buttons. These images transform into interactive buttons when the visitor intentionally clicks on them. This unique feature ensures that no personal data are shared without explicit consent from the user.

Besides enhancing user privacy, this feature also benefits website performance. Pages load faster due to the small file size of the preview images compared to the standard social media buttons. Hence, with the plugin, you can offer your users a more privacy-focused experience while improving your site's loading times.


  • Privacy-friendly integration of social services
  • Code of the buttons is only loaded after a click
  • Supported social networking services: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and XING
  • Available as a plugin and module


Install the plugin / module in the backend and enable it under Extensions - Plugin-Manager - 2 Click Social Buttons / Extensions - Module Manager - 2 Click Social Buttons.

In the settings you can activate the services (Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus) and choose the position of the buttons.
