Why am I not getting any email alerts?

The Securly web filtering solution can send email alerts regarding student activities that require the school’s attention. These email alerts are sent out to the email address used to sign up for Securly, by default. You can change this email address if required.

You may not receive any email alerts if:

  1. You have switched off the notification emails from your Account Settings.
  2. The notification email address for your account is incorrect.
  3. There is no activity to report:
    1. Enabled Self Harm Notification in Global Settings
    2. Policy Level Alerts are not enabled for blocked items
  4. Email delivery restrictions have been set up for the notification email address.
  5. It could be in your Spam or Junk folder. Please add *@securly.com as an approved domain for your email system or client.
  6. Contact admin is disabled in Global Settings
