Conditions to activate the Flusk widget

To activate or renew the Flusk widget on your app, you should meet the following:

  • Have an active Flusk subscription (at least Growth)

  • Have no security issue with the status unresolved

  • Have less than 10% of your security issues ignored

  • Have a security test run in the last 5 days

How does it work?

Once you meet all the conditions above, you will need to go on your Flusk dashboard to activate the Widget.

This will generate a Widget valid for 3 months. You can then install the Flusk plugin on your app which will display the "Secured" status for 3 months.

One month before your certificate expires, you will receive a notification to invite you to renew your Widget or meet the conditions again.
