Its a good idea to create such plugin and could be useful but when i try to activate, my website become dead. A message shown “There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.”Only way to fix it , was to login to server and rename the folder of plugin.Then website start to work again and logged to wordpress admin .Then renamed again folder to original name and on plugins of admin i clicked button to delete.Not work on 6.2 version wordpress . (I have PHP 7.4 and mysql 8.0)
