How to prevent distill from being discovered and blocked as an auto refresher by the hosting website?

Hi everyone,

I’m using an app that needs to refresh a web page every few seconds. However, I’m worried that the hosting website will block my app as an auto refresher. I’m looking for any advice on how to prevent this from happening.

I’ve tried using a random interval between refreshes.

Is this method correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Hello @norine.dobiesz - when monitoring websites, it is easy for any website to log every visit and see access patterns. The best way is to use Distill responsibly and be within websites’ access limits. Cheers!
