WHAT??? Norton Safety Minder is blocking Facebook Picture Folders!!!!!

As of yesterday (well at least for me cause I never used my computer at all on Wednesday) I was trying to view someones Facebook Picture Folder and every time I try to click it I keep getting a message saying:

part of this website has been blocked because it contains information from www.facebook.com which is categorized as Lingerie

SERIOUSLY GUYS?? I mean come one, Im sure almost every form of a webpage contains some form of lingerie; no offense but heck let me go to JCPenney.com and block it for everyone because HEY it contains Lingerie.

I'm sorry but this is now something I have to disable until it gets fixed OR I mean disable it temporarily so I can view the pics, then re enable Norton Safety Minder so I keep my normal categorization; and YES here in one second I will submit a site error.

Just very irritating is all.

I turned on my PC last night, got a message saying "Norton Safety Minder" had an update and I needed to reboot PC.  Well when I tried to access pictures and got the message I ignored posting because I hadnt rebooted PC.  I turn on PC tonight, got ANOTHER message for me to reboot PC cause Norton Safety Minder needs a restart. Then once booted back up, I went to Facebook and tried to access someones picture folders and got the same message :(

Hi ltolman,

For the Norton Safety Minder update message, please check out the link below for details.

For the issue with blocking the Facebook picture folder,  I'll pass the information to the team.  I assume you are an adult and have the category of Lingerie blocked at Settings -> Web for your Online Family account .

Thanks,

Katie

Yes I have that category blocked and yes I am an adult.

LOL regardless if I am an adult though you can never be TOO cautious on the internet anymore.  Keep in mind a link that says "How to become a better parent" can easily turn into a big pornography website hehe.

So even though I'm the sole owner of this acct; I do still have a lot of categories checked off; stuff that I could live without. I did submit a site categorization error too.

So you can view 1 single picture; but no matter WHAT folder album you click; you will always get the 'norton blocked the site cause its Lingerie' error

So not sure when it started working but apparently as of right now it is.

I can now access photo albums on Facebook without any errors thanks :)

Itolman,

Thank you for the update.  One of the possibilities that it happened was the categories of the websites for the photo albums have been updated and they are no long being rated as the categories that you have selected to be blocked.

Thanks,

Katie

Thanks Katie
