    malwarebytes keeps blocking sites that I know are good


    When Malwarebytes blocks a site that I believe is OK, is there a way to un-block the site?

    Hi Frank1.

    Should be able to do it with an exclusion.

    https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1130

    You may wish to check the site listing at urlvoid.com before entering exclusion

    Well I probably made a mistake but I got ticked off after the third time it blocked a site for me and I uninstalled it. I suppose I should reinstall it.

    Hello Frank1:

    Even if the sites in question are perfectly clean, they may very well share an IP address with an offender.

    Please consider studying the two (2) pinned topics within the following URL and then start your own topic there to report a potential False Positive (FP) and begin a thorough investigation. Thank you.

    One can also get a second opinion about a site from Virus Total: https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/url

    It could be that a sites advertising was hijacked or even page hijacking, and needs to be "cleaned up" from their admins.
    This happens all the time to Yahoo for example.
