Can Tinfoil Security harm my site?

While we take every precaution and focus heavily on protecting our customers from harm, there is always a slight chance we may accidentally exercise a vulnerability that results in spam. We will never drop any database tables or inject anything malicious, but there is a small chance we will cause some spam issues. If this is a concern, please Contact Us and we'd be happy to address this.

Furthermore, we autothrottle our scanning rate if we see your server responding slowly (since we never want to take down your servers), but if your servers are underpowered, please adjust the maximum request rate accordingly before running a scan.

In general, if you follow the recommendations outlined in our Getting Started Tips, you should have no issues at all with Tinfoil and scanning should be seamless. 

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.
