Pinterest is blocked?

I am having a problem, just about every Pinterest page that i want to visit comes up as a phishing site, and this happens a lot so is EVERY Pinterest page bad or just the ones i want to go to?

This is happening a lot to pages that i have been going to for YEARS are suddenly blocked and not viewable, is it just me or is there THAT much of a threat on the internet these days?

Re: Pinterest is blocked?

I am having the same problem, started about 27 October. I receive mails from Pinterest advising me my pins have been saved but when I click on them I receive a warning "dangerous page blocked" . Does this mean that we have to stop using Pinterest?

I would like to tell Pinterest about the problem but their Help Desk is fully computerised, no real person can be reached...

I have seen a couple of examples of these automated chat type support systems. I usually just type in 'Agent' and I get an actual human to reply.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Hi, bjm, it's actually all pins I click on, any pin that Pinterest send to me, whether it's "we think you would like these pins" or "one of your pins was saved" here are two examples, in fact I could send you the link to any pin. The warning appears in red and says:

Re: Pinterest is blocked?

Hello everybody, I did a backup and a full system scan and it now seems all threats have been removed.

I do not know whether the solution came from Norton or Pinterest or from the steps I took, but it looks like the problem is fully resolved. Thank you all for your support!
