• Live Status

When VaultPress is activated by one of these changes, you can watch the backup live via the status bar in the VaultPress dashboard.

The status bar describes exactly what’s happening at that moment—whether they’re backing up a comment, a new post, a plugin setting, or something else.

  • Hourly Snapshots

VaultPress creates a snapshot every hour, combining your recent changes with your past backups.

This allows you to browse and download a complete backup for an hour in the past.

  • Daily Scans

Sometimes there are changes to your site that WordPress doesn’t know about—like files uploaded via FTP.

To ensure a complete backup, VaultPress scans your site once a day to catch up on any changes made outside of your WordPress dashboard.

  • Security Scanning

Sites Covered by the Premium or Professional plans are scanned daily for known security threats and patterns.

Additionally, VaultPress also takes proactive measures to fix known threats and will notify you of any serious and potential security threats.
