As of version 2.5, BBQ Pro features Email Alerts. So you can get a notification every time there is something blocked by your BBQ firewall. This quick tutorial shows how to enable and configure.

Important: If your site gets heavy traffic with a lot of blocked requests, enabling Email Alerts may flood your inbox with notifications. Use this feature with caution.

Enable Email Alerts

To enable BBQ Pro to send email alerts, enable these settings (see screenshot below):

  • Email Alerts — Check box to enable email alerts
  • Email Address — Enter your email address for the alerts

Then save your changes and done! To disable email alerts at any time, simply uncheck the “Email Alerts” box and save changes.
