    Default "Deceptive Site" warning workarounds for Internet Explorer and Google Chrome

    I posted this in a thread a while back but I don't think many people saw it.

    In IE, you can circumvent the "deceptive site" warning by adding PD to your trusted sites.

    Go to the gear-looking icon and click Internet options. Go to the Security tab, click on Trusted sites, and add pacersdigest.com. Uncheck Require server verification for all sites in this zone.

    It isn't an ideal solution, but here's a workaround for Chrome:

    - Click on the three dots in the upper right corner
    - Click on Settings
    - Scroll to the bottom and click on show advanced settings
    - Under Privacy, uncheck the box next to Protect you and your device from dangerous sites

    Bill, nothing personal but you are one of many posters with the same (amazed?) reaction, sooooo

    what part of "The warnings visible to users are beingremoved from your site."(sic) did you not understand?

    the move cleared any problem that may have lingered on the old server

    I understand, but there have been times it seemed clear and then reverted, so I take reality with a grain of salt.

    I do troubleshooting, so I believe nothing ever REALLY works - it just pretends to, for a while

    I had to clear my cache for the warning to finally go away in Chrome.

    Will access via Tapatalk be fixed? I haven't been able to use it for maybe a month now.
    Never mind. Latest update seems to have fixed whatever problem there was.
