If you want to verify that the Astra Website Protection plugin is running on your website or not, you can verify is with any one of the following methods.

Method 1 - Test if a blocked IP address can visit your website

You can quickly test this out by blocking your own IP temporarily from the dashboard.

Find your IP address by visiting: https://icanhazip.com/
Visit the Threats page, and block your IP address as shown in this guide.
Open your website where the Astra Website Protection plugin is installed
You should see a page similar to the one below

Access Limited page

Remove your IP address from the Block list, to continue accessing your website

Method 2 - Test if attacks are stopped

Open your website where the Astra Website Protection plugin is installed
Now add ?test=eval(rawurldecode at the end of the URL as shown below:

example.com/?test=eval(rawurldecode(


If the attack was successfully blocked by Astra you should see an Access Limited Page

If you do not see the block page, please troubleshoot the connection & try again. Otherwise create a support ticket so that our specialists can assist you
