Introducing File System Watcher, a new feature of our Security protection. It helps to track changes in your site files to detect suspicious ones in time. File System Watcher has already been added to all plans and is enabled by default.

You can control the frequency of snapshots in the plugin settings. Alternatively, you can run the snapshot immediately by clicking the Create File System snapshot button and refreshing the page.
