While working on a DIVI WordPress site I wanted to check to see how the site looked in Internet Explorer. I know the client uses this browser primarily. Everything was fine in Firefox and Chrome, but in IE I get the following screen.
I choose “Report that this site does not contain threats” option since I knew the site was up-to-date and safe.
On the next screen I got the following page.
It appears the site is possibly being blocked because of the weather plug-in I am using.
I completed this form and submitted it. I got the following message.
Basically telling me Microsoft will consider my recommendation, but it is up to them to determine if the site is safe or not. This doesn’t re-assure me that my client will be able to view the site in Internet Explorer.
I sent the link to a co-worker and they had no issue. A search on the web lead me to this page.
This website has been reported as unsafe browser warning
They talk about malware possibly being installed. I searched my IE extensions and went into the Control Panel to see if any Possibly-Unwanted-Programs (PUPs) were installed; however, I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary.
I ended up resetting my Internet Explorer by going to Tools >> Internet Options >> Advanced >> Reset. After this the warning didn’t come back. My IE must have gotten a little hi-jacked.
