View the scan results by severity level and the number of pages affected by the issue.

The Data Privacy module is based on Google's Cloud Data Loss Prevention API, and is updated when the API is updated.

Mobile Accessibility Scans

When Mobile Accessibility is enabled, Monsido makes an additional scan of the website to simulate how it renders on a mobile device. This data is used to pick up device-specific code that only loads when a website opens on a mobile device. Based on this mobile rendition of the website, Monsido is able to perform two additional checks in addition to the accessibility checks that already run on the website.

Essentially, these two checks determine if a web page is properly responsive. Responsiveness is a basic requirement for having an accessible website. The checks are displayed in the Monsido UI and can be filtered out of the other checks. They are also displayed in the Monsido Browser Extension.

Check 1: Is pinch-to-zoom disabled?

Check 2: Does the web page require two-dimensional scrolling?

For more information, see the User Guide chapter:

CMS Integration

You can easily install the Monsido script on a website that deploys with a CMS. Monsido integrates with WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal via a plugin and integrates with all other content management systems via our API or the Monsido Web Browser Extension.

Most modern CMS systems provide an easy way to add custom scripts to web pages. The Monsido script should be included in the page header, so that the snippet appears before the closing </head> tag on every web page of the site that needs to be tracked. Refer to the CMS manual or ask for help from the CMS vendor on how to install custom scripts on all pages. If there is a guide for the CMS that describes how to install the Google Analytics™ script, this guide may also be used to install the Monsido script.

When the script is installed, Monsido highlights errors on the page where they occur. If you have access to the Analytics module, statistics are shown immediately.

For instructions on how to set up a scan for a site that uses a CMS, see:
