  • Hi, I tried this out, following the steps 1, 2 and 3 exactly but privacy link still appears. I’m using exact file names and exact directory structure as above, I also flushed Magento Cache.
    I’m using Magento 2.3.5 and Luma theme.

    Any ideas?

    • Hello Janak,
      We have cross-verified the solution and it works perfectly fine for us.
      It seems there’s some other mistake which is going unnoticed. Please make sure of the same.
      Thank you.

      • Hi, thanks you for your reply,

        Thanks for your help, I’m new to Magento development, I put in my actual Vendor and Extension names in the directory paths and in the files and it all worked. A great post.
