I have spent some time testing widget control plugins, and in my opinion this one is the best. Some other plugins cannot hide/show widgets by categories, there are some glitches, this plugin can. It can also hide/show widgets by custom taxonomies. It still works correctly with the latest wordpress 5.5. I just hope the plugin author will keep maintaining it. Thank you for the plugin.
