12-10-2023 | Property Development

Avast is among the most popular antivirus programs on the market. It guards users from dangers and allows him to surf the internet in a safe way. It also offers a broad array of other security features like blocking malware, unsafe downloads, and spam emails. It can even prevent hackers from taking over a user’s device or stealing personal files. The company provides a variety of subscription options based on the preference of the user and their needs. However, occasionally Avast could misinterpret certain websites or applications as harmful and block them. The user might get a pop-up notification saying that “avast is blocking websites” or something similar. In such cases it is recommended to turn off Avast protection temporarily. Here are a few simple ways to do this.

Method 1 Repair the installation program

This issue is usually caused by a corrupted or damaged file. In order to resolve the issue the user needs to first run a full system diagnostic. After the diagnostic is completed it is necessary to go to avast’s website and click on “Settings”. The user must locate the option ‘Exceptions’ and then click on it. In this section is where the user needs to type out the URL of the website Avast blocks. Once the user has done this, they will need to click on ‘Add Exception’, then save it.

During this process, users need to make sure that they have a copy of all their important files. When the issue is resolved, they will be able to restore all their important files. In addition, it’s important to bear in mind that using these methods is not as secure as disabling the antivirus completely. If any of the above-mentioned methods fail to work users should contact Avast support right away.
