Plugin breaks curl loopback. Health check report problems just after activation. Everything back to normal after deactivation. Took me 3 hours to figure that it was this plugin. Stay away.

Two thins are broken due this plugin: - "Loopback requests are used to run scheduled events, and are also used by the built-in editors for themes and plugins to verify code stability." - "The REST API is one way WordPress, and other applications, communicate with the server. One example is the block editor screen, which relies on this to display, and save, your posts and pages."
