If your website uses Cloudflare, you might need to explicitly allow access for our cookie-scanner. This guide explains how to do that from your Cloudflare account.
By default, Cloudflare protects your website against automated scans. We are in the process of becoming listed as a known "good bot" with Cloudflare. Until they have completed that process, you might need to add a bypass rule to your Cloudflare account, to prevent their service from blocking our cookie-scanner.
To explicitly allow Openli's cookie-scanner to access your website, you should:
  1. 1.
    Log in to your Cloudflare account
  2. 2.
    Select your website, if multiple websites are shown
  3. 3.
    Click the Firewall menu-item
  4. 4.
    Click the Firewall Rules tab
  5. 5.
    Click the Create a Firewall Rule button
  6. 6.
    Name the new rule, for example "Allow Openli cookie-scanner"
  7. 7.
    In the "When incoming requests match..." section:
    1. 1.
      set Field to User Agent
    2. 2.
      set Operator to contains
    3. 3.
      in Value, type LegalMonster (exactly as written here; no quotes, no spaces, and capital L and M)
  8. 8.
    In the "Then..." section:
    1. 1.
      set Choose an action to Bypass
    2. 2.
      set Choose a feature to Browser Integrity Check
  9. 9.
    Click the Save button
Our cookie-scanner should now be able to scan your site. You can see an screenshot of a correctly configured rule here:
