My website is getting flagged for URL techscam, please help
« on: November 05, 2021, 04:13:20 PM »
Hello,

I run https://thefangirlverdict.com/ and today my reader alerted me to the fact that while trying to access my site on Chrome, he keeps getting a warning from Avast. The warning message that keeps popping up is of what Avast calls URL:TechScam from a link it identifies as vast.doubleverify.com

I believe this to be a false positive, could Avast please help with this?

Thank you.
