Dangerous Website - Message Warmimg Override?

Over the last couple days a website I have used regularly has suddenly been blocked with this Norton message "Dangerous Website Blocked. You attempted to access:". There is a small line at the bottom of the warning that when clicked allows me to access the website, but nowhere is there an override for allowing access without warnings. Note that every page I try to open gives the same warning and I have to continually override. I have used the site for a long time and have not seen nor hear of any problems with it. How do I change settings in Norton so that I can access the website without warnings for the website. I've looked, but can't find how to do this, if I indeed can.

You cannot change those settings. The over ride is exactly what you are doing. Is this your website? Are you saying the site is clean and it is a false positive? Exactly what is the site?

Its not a setting, at least not locally. Its an enforced warning from the Norton servers that I can find no way to permanently override. I have to override each and every page of the website, as the warning comes up each and every time. As far as I am concerned the site is safe. There are thousands of users and I've been on the site many times with no issues. This warning has only popped up in the last couple days. The site is: https:// forum.libreelec . tv/index . php

You cannot disable it unless you turn off safe search. It is part of Norton's web filtering. If you know the site is safe then submit it to Norton for a false positive.

Thanks, I submitted the form and will see what happens. I noticed that I do not get the blocked message in Microsoft Edge, only in Firefox.

That is cause Norton does not support Edge at this time.

hi doggyofone,

We have manually analyzed the below domain and found it to be clean. So we have modified its rating to green in safeweb.norton.com.

Hello doggyolone

The website which you wanted to visit, but found it blocked, is no longer being blocked. It now has a Green OK on it.

Thanks.
