How long do scans take?

Our entrance scans (the ones run from our homepage) can take up to a maximum of 3 hours. Normally they're much faster than this, but if a site is very large it may take that long. If you don't want to wait on the page, feel free to just enter your email address to be notified when the scan completes!

A full scan that is run after signing up for an account and verifying the site varies in length; typical scans range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes, but occasionally a scan can run up to 12 hours or so at the high end. We have a lot of algorithms that attempt to speed up the scan by limiting the amount of work we have to repeat, and you can also speed up the scan by increasing the request rate - be careful, though, not to overload your server!

As always, if you have any questions or issues at all, please feel free to contact us in our Support Chat or via any of the methods listed on our Contact Page and we'll be more than happy to assist.
