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

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

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

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.

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

I can get to FB now

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?
I am having the same issue with Webroot blocking access to Facebook. I did notice that it is only occurring when I use Mozilla.
I'm able to get in as well now, although some apps appear to be running slow
Same. An explanation and a fix would be great.
Same here too :(

Yep, same here:

Thanks.  I wonder if there is some kind of malware that has turned up on Facebook.  Facebook has a lot of nosey apps.  I don't do the Facebook games or quizzes because they harvest too much information.
I'm getting blocked too.  That's why I just signed up for this discussion group.  I sent a review request to Webroot as well. I'm in Calif.
I gave up and did the same thing.  clicked 'unblock'.
Can't unblock as far as I can tell from using the Chrome extension... how do you do that?

Same here, I guess tech support should be getting notices- someday.
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.
