More information on the WebTotem Security plugin can be found in our Help Center.


Why can’t I activate WordPress plugin with API-Keys?
It is required to copy API-Key immediately after it has been generated. Since we don’t store API-Keys with authentic namings for the sake of security issues. If you did not copy it from generation window, we recommend you to delete it, generate a new one again and copy it with original naming.


Why doesn’t firewall block the attacks?
After installation the firewall is undergoing training for two weeks, analyzing the operation of the system and all requests. Upon completion of the training, the firewall will start to block attacks. If after two weeks after installation the firewall does not block attacks, then contact support.

Does GDN send my data to other WebTotem clients?
Thanks for the question. You don’t have to worry about your personal data. GDN option shares data collected between your websites and does not share it with other WebTotem clients.


How does antivirus work?
Our antivirus scans every 6 hours and scans automatically each time the filesystem changes. In other words, if you upload a new file to your website our antivirus scans it immediately. There is also an option to start manual scanning by clicking the rescan button in the right top of the module. Manual scanning shows the same results if no changes to filesystem has occured since the last automatic scanning.

How do I delete an infected file?
It is impossible to completely delete a file marked as infected by an antivirus using our service. This can be a vital file for your website. You can quarantine this file. To do this, select the site you need in your personal account. Go to the antivirus module, click the “SHOW MORE” button, configure the filter for infected files and click the “trash bin” icon next to the file name.

I have two websites that run through Cloudflare/Ezoic and while support has been very nice coming back almost daily to try to resolve my issue. It appears that they simply can't install their software on my websites. It's shame. I got it to install on another website no problem but after over a month and many emails it appears there is no hope. They've logged on to my website more than twenty times to solve the issue and after a month there is still no way to resolve it. Had hope for this but I can see now this might not be the solution. I would rework your install process because obviously it's not as good as other plugins which don't require this much work around to try to get it to work. If they ever resolve my issues I will update the score to reflect that but right now I do not recommend.

WebTotem Security is an easy to use antivirus and firewall tool that is connected to the cloud to prevent hacking and attacks on a website. WebTotem support staff is fast and very nice. I have been using WebTotem for about six months now, and the WebTotem team has been very helpful in assisting me with any issues that I have had.

I purchased this plugin and really wanted to like it. Unfortunately it's not been anywhere near as good as promised, and am now removing it from all my sites. The plugin shows lots of promise but missing some really key features - such as the ability to whitelist yourself. Have to contact customer support to do that. It's also missing key features to make WordPress specifically more secure - and is a more generic kind of solution. All that said, the customer support team is superb. There's lots of scope to grow. Hopefully the product matures into what it should be capable of being, as it could be a terrific addition to securing WordPress websites.
