Secret scanning result not showing

Hi Team,

I’m unable to see the alerts for secrets when introduced in my repo. I have a question regarding secret scanning .

  1. What is the frequency to detect the secrets in the public repos when introduced? Will it show the alert as soon as the commit is done?

The repo is public and the alerts are not shown.

None of the documents related to secret scanning helped. Kindly help me understand how this works.

Thanks in advance
