    • Language - Dashboard language is specific to user login. The Language selection from the top bar is now moved to the Settings menu.
    • Messages – Messages have moved from the top bar to the main navigation on the left side of the screen.

Q: What is the “Max Risk Score?”

A: If you have SiteLock Risk Score included in your subscription, you will see the highest risk score across all your account’s domains highlighted at the top of the dashboard with an icon called “Max Risk Score.” This allows you to see if SiteLock has identified any of your sites to be at-risk in a quick glance.


Q: How is the Risk Score calculated?

A: The SiteLock Risk Score is a proprietary and predictive model used to determine a website’s likelihood of compromise.
The Risk Score looks at three main categories to determine risk:

  1. Website complexity - or the size of your website, whether you use a database to store customer information.
  2. Site popularity - like traffic and social media presence.
  3. Site composition - or the software used to build your site. SiteLock then looks at over 500 different website variables to calculate your risk score on a low, medium, and high scale.
    • Low-risk score means your site is likely to be compromised as the average website.
    • Medium-risk score means your site is six times more likely to be compromised than the average website.
    • Finally, a High-risk score indicates the risk is 12 times more likely than the average website.


Q: How often is the information in my dashboard updated?

A: The SiteLock Dashboard provides real-time information on the status of your account, including subscriptions.


Q: What are future changes planned for the SiteLock Dashboard?

A: We are an organization that continues to grow, and as we expand our product portfolio, we will continue to add powerful and more in-depth features and functionality.
