Navigating your Dashboard FAQ

How can I check the status of my security?

As a SiteLock customer, you can login to your SiteLock Dashboard at any time to review the status of your security, including pages scanned and traffic blocked. We'll also send you live emails alerting you to anything malicious or suspicious on your website.

Logging into the Dashboard

Visit https://secure.sitelock.com/login.php to access your account. If you have signed up for SiteLock via one of our hosting partners, you may be able to access your SiteLock Dashboard through your hosting control panel. Your login is the email you used to create your account. Your password was created at the time of sign-up (either online or on the phone with one of our Customer Service Representatives).

If you are unsure of your password, visit our login page, enter your login and click the Reset Password link beneath the Password field.

Some password best practices include:
Keep your password difficult to guess
Be sure to include special characters (e.g. !,@,#)
Avoid using dictionary words or names in your password
Change your password at least every few months

Navigating Your Dashboard

Website Traffic


Upon logging in, you will see your website traffic broken down in four categories:

  • Shield Views (how many people clicked on your site's Trust Seal)
  • Unique Visitors (new visitors to the site)
  • Human Visitors (how many non-bot visitors accessed your website)
  • Bot Visitors (how many bots accessed your website)

Remember, not all bots are bad! Google, Bing and other search engines frequently use bots to crawl (index) your website for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes.

What do the dashboard warnings mean?

You may receive multiple warnings from the SiteLock Dashboard as we clean your site. These warnings are normal as we scan, clean and update your files. We will also email you updates when we find and remove the malware from your website. Please note that once your website is clean, it may take up to 24 hours for your Dashboard to update and reflect the changes.
