Opt Out of Scanning
Can I opt out of Censys scans?
Censys scans help the scientific community accurately study the Internet. The data Censys gathers is sometimes used to detect security problems and to inform operators of vulnerable systems so that they can be fixed. If you opt out of the research, you might not receive these important security notifications.
However, if you wish to opt out, you can configure your firewall to drop traffic from the subnets we use for scanning:
Additionally, our http-based scans use a Censys specific user-agent, which can be used to filter requests from our scanners.
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; CensysInspect/1.1; +https://about.censys.io/)
We do not remove results from Censys, but if you have blocked these subnets, the results will automatically be pruned out.
