CodeGuard Monitoring and Notifications

 

CodeGuard monitors your site daily and notifies you anytime there is a change within the source code of the website. Additions, removals, and modifications of files between each version of your website can be viewed in the CodeGuard dashboard.

Here is a video guide discussing where to look for your website changes and how to set up the notifications in your CodeGuard dashboard.

Please note that the video below starts at 05:15, so it will begin in the section where it discusses how to find the website changes in CodeGuard.

As discussed in the video, the changes will be listed in the Inbox of your CodeGuard account.

You may also see a summary of these changes as a graph in the Files Backup Summary section. To see this section, click the website name from your CodeGuard dashboard.
