Install / update the security plugin

If it is not possible for you to update to the latest version of Shopware, you can use our Shopware Security-Plugin.

  • Download the Shopware Security Plugin from our store or use the Plugin Manager of your Shopware backend.
  • Install and activate the plugin.

If you use this plugin already, simply update it to the latest version to secure your environment. Also if you experience any problems, you can disable individual fixes via the plugin settings.
