Unsafe Site

Here very lately when I do an internet search from my Microsoft Edge page and select a site to go to, it quickly goes to that site, but then I get a message from McAfee stating:

Website status:  


McAfee lets me go back to my original site, but I'd like to get rid of this happening altogether. Any ideas?

Re: Unsafe Site

Hi @hendricksondoug,

Greetings from McAfee.

If McAfee antivirus tool detects a site hosting malware, it will blacklist the site by adding it to its database of malicious websites. When you try to browse to a website that you believe is trustworthy, the McAfee Firewall function called Net Guard blocks you from accessing the site. This function uses a repository of known good and known bad domain names and IP addresses.

To know the rating of the websites and for workarounds to access sites which are blocked by Netguard, kindly follow the below McAfee article

McAfee Document ID : TS101116
