«PHP Compatibility Checker Report says plugin is not compatible»
We are aware that the PHP checker can provide information that is valuable but not necessarily defining as to compatibility.
If you performed a scan using “PHP Compatibility Checker” or any another checker and got warnings, these are just warnings, nothing to worry about here.
Because our plugins have checks built-in that prevent the functions are called wrongly. They will only be called if they are available. The plugin you use to test with does not take into account code made for backwards compatibility.
By the way, if you have a plugin that is up to date but still flagged as incompatible, it might also be a false positive.

Thus, nearly half of 214.000+ customers use PHP 7.0.x. and Supsystic plugins. Surely, they would have noticed if they had compatibility issues.
