What are the unknown sites added to my account in the management console?

The 'unknown' site are added because the Auto-add sites function is default enabled, makes that when a new or unrecognized site uses your account’s embed script, the website is automatically added to your account. 

Not to worry, here’s why this happens:

  • When UserWay's AI detects your widget code on a new website domain, (e.g., your development site), the default response is to automatically add a new website to your account.
  • This automatic site addition can also occur when someone has illegally cloned your website. UserWay detects these cloned websites and adds them to your UserWay account. When a new site is added, you should check it to see if it is in fact yours. If it is not, this is an excellent opportunity for you to take action. Illegally cloned websites could be taking away business, ruining your brand reputation, or worse.
  • These cloned websites DO NOT and could not have access to your account. They DO NOT impact your monthly page views. Cloned websites mimic or mirror your site, and are only able to run the free version of the widget only. They can't log in and use or upgrade your subscription.
  • These sites can be ignored or deleted by clicking the trash can icon next to the site name and reviewed later. This “deletes” the cloned site from your UserWay account: the widget won’t run on the deleted site anymore.

In order to disable the auto-add sites, please follow the steps:

  1. Login to your UserWay Management console.
  2. Go to My sites > See a site you don’t recognize?
  3. Click on button Auto-add sites to “My Sites” to disable/enable the function:
