Avast blocking screenshots from Gyazo for Phishing
« on: December 30, 2022, 03:05:07 AM »
i've been using gyazo for years and avast started blocking screenshots from it. It comes up as phishing. I already went and added gyazo to my exceptions list and that did not help wanted to see if anyone here could help thank.

If you can post a screenshot of the Avast alert window (with the more details options displayed), it may help us to help you.

I was able to connect to the site without alert, so your screenshot would help.

same problem.  just started today.  Gyzao is the quickest screenshot and gif program i know of so would like to keep using it without having to switch to another virus protection.

Same here. Started today. Can access the site but any screen grabs get shut down for phishing. Only way around it is to turn off web shield...

I too am having the same issue with Gyazo. Is it a real phishing scam?
