Avast blocking website - I dont even have Avast installed
« on: December 26, 2023, 10:24:15 AM »
Avast keeps blocking safe website. I don't even have Avast installed on my computer. Never had it installed. How is this possible?

Avast keeps blocking safe website.
How do you see it is Avast that is blocking it?
You will have to give us more details of what error message or pop-up warning you are seeing.
You can attach screenshots using the "Attachments and other options" link under the text box.

Also state (link) the website that is giving you the issue, but edit the https to hxxxs to deactivate the link.

You could also take this up with Cloudflare for the WordPress content to be checked.
