Reasons to avoid WordPress nulled themes and plugins

Many premium WordPress themes and plugins are available at a fraction of the cost or even for free. According to users on various WordPress forums, "nulled" refers to a commercial WordPress plugin or theme that has been hacked or updated to "work" without a legitimate licence, as well as code that can cause harm or collect personal information. This article provides a brief overview of what nulled themes and plugins are and why they should be avoided.

Although WordPress premium plugins are supplied at a lesser price or even for free, following are some established reasons to avoid nulled themes or plugins:

  • Nulled themes/plugins may work for a short while, but there's no way of knowing if they'll offer a third party control of your site.
  • The nulled theme/plugin could contain malicious code.
  • Your site could be hacked, or even worse, once infiltrated, it could be utilised for phishing.
  • There is no help from the developer.
  • There are no automated updates.

Thousands of free plugins are accessible on the official site, and all of them go through a vetting procedure to guarantee that they meet WordPress's requirements.
