This feature allows you to set a limit for the monthly notifications of your website. For example, if you are allowed 50,000 notifications on your current plan and have 2 sites on your account, you can set 25,000 each of your two sites.
How it works
Once per day our system will check your notification usage so far in the month and estimate total monthly notifications to be shown. Using this estimate, we will automatically tweak your settings to show less or more notifications in order to match your specified limit.
Specific settings that are adjusted:
- Maximum per page (allowed range: 3 - 8)
- Delay between notifications (allowed range: 12 seconds - 20 seconds)
Only these settings will be adjusted. Nothing else.
You can see how Limit Protection changes your Settings in your Audit Logs (Account > Team > Audit Logs):
The goal of this feature is for automated slight tweaking of your settings, not total control. It works best when set early on in the month and when you have consistent traffic.
It is possible that even when your settings are at the lowest (Maximum per page = 3, Delay between notifications = 20 seconds), your limit could be hit before the end of the month.
