Avast is one of the most well-known antivirus programs on the market. It protects users against threats and lets them navigate the internet in a safe manner. It also comes with a range of security features, like blocking spam emails and malware. It also prevents hackers from taking over a user’s device or stealing personal files. The company offers different subscription options based on a user’s preferences and needs. However, occasionally Avast might interpret certain websites or apps as harmful and block them. The user might get an email notification that states “avast is blocking websites” or something similar. In these cases, it’s best to temporarily disable Avast protection. Here are a few easy methods to do this.
Method 1 Repair the installation program
The issue is typically caused by a corrupted system file. To resolve the issue, conduct a full system diagnostic. Once the diagnostic is complete then the user needs to visit the website of avast and click on “Settings”. The user must locate the option ‘Exceptions’ and then click on it. In this case users will have to enter the URL of the site that Avast blocks. Once the user has entered the required information, they’ll need to click on “Add Exception” and then save it.
During this process, users need to make sure that they have a copy of the important files. So, once the problem is fixed, they are able to restore all their important data. It is important to remember that these methods aren’t as safe as disabling your antivirus completely. If any of the methods above do not work, Avast support should be contacted immediately.
