Web Shield and Office365 Outlook issues
« on: January 10, 2021, 06:34:15 PM »
I have had Avast pop up and block my work's O365 Outlook saying it's phishing since yesterday.  It doesn't block my personal Outlook account.  I have tried putting in exceptions, but I must be missing something.

I want to use my home PC since my work laptop is underpowered (and I don't like Mac).  I don't have Avast on my work laptop and O365 Outlook works fine on that.  Work won't make exceptions for me.   I've had Avast for years and would rather not switch....thanks.

Hi,

This was a false positive. Should be fixed by now.
