Unusual Login

Last updated: 2022-09-05 14:52:27

    This document describes how to use the Anti-Unusual Login feature.


    When unusual login attempts such as login from an unusual location, login with an unusual user name, login at an unusual time, login from an unusual IP are detected, CWPP will mark the login records as "Suspicious" or "High-risk" based on intelligent algorithms, and send alerts to you in real time.

    Important Notes

    • The Anti-Unusual Login feature is available for the servers on which the CWPP Agent is installed and is online.
    • The CWPP console only retains the unusual login events for the last 6 months, and the event data generated 6 months ago is not displayed.
