Here, you'll see an overview of findings—potential compliance problems—together with their severity level. You can drill down into the network requests or cookies that caused a finding by clicking the "View Requests" or "View Cookies" button on the finding. You can also use the "Network Requests" and "Cookies" tabs to inspect the full set of data processing activities encountered on your website.

To share the scan results, you can download a PDF of the findings in your report.

If a scan failed, the "Summary" tab will show an error message detailing the error.

Depending on the error, you may need to:

  • Modify the Browser Automation steps to suit your website.
  • Allow us to scan your website if you're using bot protection technology.
  • Re-run the scan.

Now that you've run your first scan, you can schedule a recurring scan. Simply visit the "Schedules" page, click "New Schedule", and set up your scan settings and the scan frequency.
