What are the different Security Tolerance Levels?

The security level of the Astra Website Protection plugin determines how the plugin blocks attackers coming to your website. It depends on some factors (but not limited to):

Attack Intensity
Attack Frequency
IP Reputation

How to modify Security Tolerance Level

Log into your dashboard and navigate to Settings. Scroll down to the “Security Tolerance  Level” section.

You can choose between the following levels:

Low - Challenges only the most threatening visitors
Medium - Challenges both moderate threat visitors and the most threatening visitors
High - Challenges all visitors that exhibit threatening behavior within the last 14 days

Astra sets the Security Level to Medium by default.
