    Can you tell me how to uninstall this plugin. I cannot find it in my plugin list or on my server in the plugins folder? Thanks.

    Hi Dbo111,

    It's strange that 6Scan does not appear in your WordPress plugin list. Uninstalling the plugin through the WordPress interface is the best way to make sure all changes made to your site (including any fixes) are undone.

    However, the plugin's files live in wp-content/plugins, inside a directory named '6scan-protection', and you can also uninstall the plugin by deleting this directory. If this directory does not exist for you, then the plugin was probably previously deleted, and in any case is not active on your site anymore.

    Note that if you do not uninstall the plugin using WordPress, our servers will not know you did, and hence will continue scanning your site for a while before they realize the plugin is not there. If you'd like the scanning to stop right away, but cannot uninstall through WordPress, send off an email to support@6scan.com with your site URL, and we can take care of that.

    Hope that answers your question clearly!
