Your Personal Dashboard is your hub for all things Guardio. Here, you can learn about Guardio's features and how they keep you protected. You can also access all things related to your account, like your activity history, plan members, account settings, and more.
If you're new to Guardio, want to learn more, or want to familiarize yourself with the information available to you in your account, you're in the right place. Here, we'll walk through each page of your dashboard and bring you up to speed on everything you need to know.
The Grand Tour
When you open your Personal Dashboard, the first page you'll see is the Overview tab. This is your dashboard's homepage. It shows a summary of threats Guardio has found and blocked on your device and information about the device you're using.
At the top right, you can see your protection status. If there are any important messages about your account, such as trial information, missing permissions, or upcoming expiration dates, they'll appear in a bar at the top of the page. For example, this image shows what someone who doesn't have the Guardio extension installed would see:
On the left side of your dashboard, you can see each of the areas where Guardio protects you. Depending on your plan type, you'll see different options and information inside each category.
This includes all features that protect you while you're actively browsing the Internet:
- Blocking of Malicious Websites (premium feature)
- Suspicious Website Alerts
- Camera & Microphone Alerts
At the bottom of the page, you can see each instance where Guardio took action to protect you. For example, in this image, you can see a list of websites Guardio blocked:
FAQ: What if Guardio blocks a website I need to access?
Any time Guardio blocks a website, you have the option to override that block and visit the site anyway. We don't recommend doing this, as sites that seem harmless can have malicious activity going on behind the scenes that you can't see. To learn more about how blocking works and how you can override a block, click here: More information on whitelisting sites.
Here you can view all features and activities related to extensions on your browser and use the toggle to turn them on or off.
Extension protection includes two features:
- Detection & removal (premium feature)
- Suspicious store alerts
Below the features, you can see all installed extensions as well as those that Guardio neutralized and marked as harmful by Guardio:
