I am not a McAfee customer, but am finding URLs are being redirected to your service.
In one instance, https://newsletter.danhon.com/ is redirecting to http://blockpg.kali.shp.mcafee.com/blockpage/?ref=f4fa56a0cdbb2062e830000f5258089e.
In another instance teamsnap.com - a site that is not malicious - was blocked.
I have not been able to track down how McAfee is inserting itself into my connection:
Greetings from McAfee!
We have raised a ticket to the concern team. Please check after 3 - 5 working days. We will keep you posted on the updates.

I have more information: the domain redirect happens from a different computer.
1. The issue usually happens on my Macbook.
2. I opened a Chromebook and connected to the same wifi network
3. I went to the affected link reported above, at newsletter.dahon.com
4. I was redirected to kali.shp.mcafee.com
For debugging I tried the same workflow but with a different wifi access point. The issue only occured when using a particular device, a COVR-2200, a D-Link device.
I then explored the configuration options for the COVR. There was definitely no setting to enable or disable McAfee.
I believe that what is happening is in the firmware because of a contractual relationship between D-Link and McAfee.
Another URL blocked by mcafee is:
This could not be more plainly wrong. There's no question the blocklist is actually reliable enough to occupy such a privileged position in my network.
