blocking facebook

Webroot is suddenly blocking Facebook.  Every time I try to go to the FB page, I get this message.  How to fix this?

Hi there!
I am not noticing a slow down getting on FB. Have you tried a different browser or clearing your history, cache in your browser?

Facebook runs a bit slow, but I am able to get on.  Sometime I have to refresh to get some things on Facebook to work.

Hello sxd0145,
Try a reboot of your computer. Webroot has sent out the fix for Facebook. You may not have received it yet.

Hi Saratonga
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
I can use Facebook on Chrome without any blocks. So that is odd?

Same here for the past hour or so.  Submitted problem to Webroot through the Warning message screen.
I just tried again and entered through the link with the red warning sign and it allowed me, but it is still showing as High Risk website
I am using Chrome and Facebook is being Blocked with NO option to Unblock

Hello Poohx13,
Thank you!
I believe you are correct. Facebook on Chrome is working without a block and you can use Microsoft Edge is working as well.Because there isn't a Webfilter there.
Not fixed here 🙂. I have even tried "refreshing my configuration"
I am having the same issue with Webroot blocking access to Facebook. I did notice that it is only occurring when I use Mozilla.
There is no 'Unblocking " option for me either. 😞

Hi, there is not "unblock" link for my users -I assuem I have to change a setting via the msp control panel?

Hello Everyone. Webroot is working on this issue as fast as they can. But you can hit unblock at the bottom of the screen.

my webroot is also blocking facebook saying its a phishing site
I find it interesting that Webroot gives you the option to sign in using Facebook but is blocking Facebook.  Blocked on our laptops but can't find any reason why.

Same here, I guess tech support should be getting notices- someday.
Can't unblock as far as I can tell from using the Chrome extension... how do you do that?
