Avast blocking Lloyds Bank sharedealing in the UK
« on: October 10, 2022, 09:45:34 AM »
I first of all go to
https://www.lloydsbank.com/investing.html (this is correct URL that I have had as a bookmark for a long time).
This works ok
Then if I click on sharedealing, it doesn't allow me to continue due to it supposedly being a Phishing URL.
Even if I click "Continue anyway". it no longer works, so I am not able to access my sharedealing account any more.

Please break the active link to a suspect site to avoid accidental exposure e.g. no htt*s, etc. "lloydsbank.com/investing.html"

That said, I have just visited the link and no Avast Antivirus alert (see attached), also so it doesn't appear to be the Avast Antivirus program blocking the link you provided.

Going deeper it is only when you try to login that you get the alert, see 2nd attached image, is this what you are talking about (posting an image of the alert window would have helped).

You can use the  -  Reporting a Possible False Positive File or Website - https://www.avast.com/false-positive-file-form.php.
You should get a response in a day or two.
