I have false negative (downtime) what can I do?

Sometimes, web hosting providers' firewalls might prevent us from getting the HTTP status code of your website. 

In such a situation, you have to contact your hosting provider support and share with them this message : 


I’m using an uptime monitoring service named  WP Umbrella which is blocked by your firewall.

To fix this, could you stop blocking their bot? You can detect it with 2 headers:

  • User-Agent : ‘umbrella bot’
  • X-Umbrella: ‘true’

Thank you for your help,

Please feel free to reach us out at support@wp-umbrella.com if you need any help with this!
