    Include or Exclude pages from scanning

It may be necessary to include or exclude certain pages from the scan process based on the relevance, sensitivity or utility of the information held there. The feature can be configured here, please note the URLs must be comma-separated.

    Scan Behind Login

The "Scan behind login" section allows you to specify the necessary parameters for scanning web pages that require user authentication or access control. This feature is particularly useful for websites that have login systems or restricted areas. The provided set of options allows you to configure the scan settings to perform "scan behind login". You can specify the required various parameters related to the login process, such as the page URL, email/username field ID, email/username, password field ID, password, submit button ID, username button ID, action, reCAPTCHA, and/or if you need to press Enter after username/password.

By configuring these options, Secure Privacy will be able to navigate through the login process and access restricted areas of your website during the scanning process, providing a comprehensive analysis of your site's privacy and compliance.

After configuring the desired options in the Scan report settings, don't forget to save your preferences to apply the changes. To do so, locate the “Save” button at the top of the settings page and click on it. This will ensure that your selected settings are saved and activated for future scan reports.

By adjusting these configurable options, you can tailor the scan report settings in Secure Privacy to meet your specific requirements and preferences. This provides you with flexibility and control over how the scans are performed, and the resulting report is delivered.

Note: It's important to choose the appropriate settings based on your website's characteristics and compliance needs to ensure comprehensive and accurate scan reports.
