Automated crawlers (search engines) search and scan websites on the internet at regular intervals. This is similar to taking a stroll in a shopping mall, in both cases you cannot avoid being watched by others. Normally on the internet, as in real life, this does not pose a risk or put you at a disadvantage. The SIWECOS service also scans your website for security flaws or malicious software at regular intervals. The results from an automatic scan are used, for example, to index your website for search engines so that the website can be found more quickly and easily in search engine results. Another well-known example is the Internet Archive, which crawls, scans and saves websites regularly in order to archive them for posterity.
