How to Stop Avast From Blocking Websites

Avast is among the most popular antivirus software on the market. It shields users from threats, and enables them to navigate the internet in a safe manner. It also offers a broad range of other security features including blocking harmful downloads, malware as well as spam emails. It can also stop hackers from gaining access to a user’s device or stealing personal information. The company offers a wide range of subscription options based upon the preferences and requirements of the user. Avast can misinterpret some websites or applications and block them. The user might get a pop-up notification saying that “avast is blocking websites” or something similar. In these situations, it is advisable to disable Avast protection temporarily. Here are a few simple methods to do this.

Method 1 Method 1: Repair the installation program

In the majority of cases, this issue arises due to a corrupted installation file. To solve the issue, first conduct a full system diagnostic. Once the diagnostic is completed, the user must go to the website of avast, and click on ‘Settings’. There, the user will have to locate the option ‘Exceptions’ and then click on it. In this section users will have to type out the URL of the website Avast blocks. Once they have completed this, they must click on the button ‘Add an exception’ and then save it.

During this process, the user should make sure that they have backups of all their data. So, when the issue is resolved, they will be able to restore all their important files. It is important to note that these methods are not the same as removing your antivirus completely. If any of the above-mentioned methods do not work the user should contact Avast support immediately.
