 > => The Info tab is a security issue in itself (too sensitive

 This page is only available to administrators. Sensitive information is
 subjective here. There aren't any passwords, salts, etc included in this
 information. If you're concerned about what is output, then you can filter
 the response.

 debugging in WordPress''" is just laughable

 You should not be running WP_DEBUG on a production site

 with 0 bytes received''

 external website (which ones ? personal data collected ?) !

 This is just making a `wp_remote_request()` back to your site to test that
 the REST API is accessible. If it isn't, critical parts of WordPress may
 not work, such as the new block editor.

 > * Background updates are not working as expected :
 > ''Could not confirm that the wp_version_check() filter is available.

 control (.svn).''
 > This is not an error, it is exactly what i want

 If this is intentional, then it's safe to ignore or to filter from the
 test list.

 > * Your site could not complete a loopback request
 > can anyone explain me what is a "wordpress loopback request" (no
 information on that topic in wordpress.org)

 A loopback is when WordPress makes a request back to itself from within a
 single request. A couple of examples are starting a new `WP_Cron`
 instance, or when editing plugin or theme files through the admin.

 The Site Health tool code only runs when you load the Site Health page, so
 it would have no affect on any other parts of your admin interface.
