Topic: Reduce false positives

Excluding dates in the tracked page

Help Center Reduce false positivesLast updated: 6 September, 2023

It is common to see "updated 1 month ago" or "last changed 1 hour ago" text constantly updating in your tracked pages.

This information isn't very useful and often it causes false-positive notifications to be sent.

"Remove dates" action

We recommend adding "Remove dates" action to the tracked page. All detected dates will be replaced with [DATE REMOVED] tag.

What date formats are supported?

"Remove dates" action is designed to handle most common date formats such as:

  • 1 day ago
  • 19 August 2022
  • 2000
  • 01-01-2020
  • Sat Aug 17 2020 18:40:39 GMT+0000 (GMT)
  • and many more...
