Just checked my ordered writings at Grammarly and found that some showed ~6% similarity against other articles online.

Should it be a concern? What's the max similarity % you can accept?

I am normally OK with 2%. Especially if the same text is against few unrelated websites.

The percentile score is generally really loose-leaf. Check what actually triggered the flag.

In some cases it could be a particular product name or phrase that gets randomly picked up based on the topical structure.

So if it's just ungrouped words and terms popping up, I wouldn't be worried at all. However, if it's entire sentences where clearly someone just swapped out a few words - you've got a problem.
