HIPAA Gauge reports vulnerabilities of plugins, themes, and the web server where the site is hosted. Vulnerabilities may impact the website’s adherence to HIPAA compliance guidelines.

Major features include:

  • Dashboard – Shows a summary of vulnerabilities
  • Reports – Links to the latest reports. Only available in the premium version.
  • Report Details – Only available in premium version.


  • Dashboard of latest report findings.
  • Detailed information for report.
  • List of previous reports.


How often are the reports updated with the latest vulnerabilities?

The first report is produced shortly after the plugin is activated. Report will be updated weekly for the normal version and daily for premium version.

What extra features are included in the premium version?

The premium version updates the vulnerability report daily instead of weekly.

The premium version also grants access to the latest vulnerability reports which includes details useful for remediating the vulnerabilities identified by the plugin.

What is the cost of the premium version

The premium version is free of any fee; however, we ask for a backlink in order to unlock the premium features. The backlink would be from the interior pages (not the home page) of your website to the HIPAA Gauge’s URL.

The ‘free’ version provides nothing more than vague information. It may say there are plugins with vulnerabilities, but it won’t tell you which ones or what the issue is. You have to get the premium version to get anything potentially of value. While the premium version is ‘free’, you have to agree to have a link to the HIPAA Gauge website on every single page of your site other than the homepage. Ridiculous.
