👟How Monitoring Runs

First, make sure to learn the basics of creating a monitor and an automation.

In order to monitor webpages for changes, Monitoro needs to open these webpages on a continuous basis.

Where is the monitoring happening?

After installing the extension, monitoro will maintain a small pinned tab at the top left of your browser.

This is called the runner tab, and that's where monitoring happens on the Free, Basic, Standard and Pro plans. This is to ensure that Monitoro sees the same content you see on the webpages you want to monitor.

Monitoring in your browser also enables you to monitor websites behind a login in an absolutely secure manner without ever sharing credentials or authentication data with us, as it's all handled by your own browser. All you need to do is to be logged in the website you want to monitor.

For Enterprise customers, we offer monitoro Cloud and custom authentication methods designed to support enterprise needs and meet its security requirements. Enterprise customers only use the extension to create monitors, while running them is completely managed by monitoro Cloud.

How are webpages opened for monitoring?

The runner tab is in charge of opening your monitored webpages in sequence, one after the other. A webpage is opened again after all other monitored pages have been opened already, at which point that webpage is opened again.

The specific duration until a page is opened a second time depends on several factors, such as your monitor's settings, how many webpages you're monitoring and external factors.

Why is monitoring running on a continuous basis?

You might be wondering, "this webpage only changes once a week, I only need to monitor it once every week. Why should I monitor it every day?". Here's the kick, if your weekly monitor misses the update by one single minute, you will be notified one whole week later.

This is why Monitoro emphasizes frequent monitoring. Shortly said, we want to make sure that you are always notified as fast as possible, within reason and technical feasibility.
