    So, my anti-virus deemed the Knoxt website as malicious, anybody with the same experience? Is this a false alarm or should I avoid the Knoxt website?

    I was about to read 'the villain is too cute' before my anti-virus prevented me from opening it.

    I got the same anti-virus notice, but i don't know whether its a false alarm or not.
    Edit: I tried to open the site in a new tab and I didn't get the notice again.

    I tried what you did but it still kept preventing me from opening it. I can't even type in "knoxt" fully into the search bar before the pop-ups showed up :blobsob:

    I'm using Avast anti-virus, not too sure if it got to do with it.

    If that's happening then it might be happening because it previously judged it to be dangerous. Try clearing cookies and recent browser history and try again. If it still says the same, then it's probably better to not visit the site.

    I have been having the same problem all my browsers says it is malicious website. I can not even access to the website I tried all. I wonder why some people have this problem. Does anyone has their discord

    Did you find a solution?

    Not at all, not even the VPN helps so I'm staying away from it for now :blobimfine:

    I haven't tried other browsers other than chrome and brave but both deemed it as malicious. Have you tried clearing the cache and delete your browsing history like 3db suggested?

    I kinda solved this problem. I have tried all the methods mentioned and tried on different browsers like chrome, explorer firefox, avast. The same on my phone. I managed to get into the site through avast browser on my phone. (Strangely i could not access the site when using avast browser on my laptop)
    The site is not loading well on avast but still I am able to access so yay)

    avast is more of a virus than an antivirus. Uninstall it, use windows defender, install an adblock on your browser and you'll notice life is more peaceful

    I can access the website just fine with ublock origin (the only adblock you ever need, no need to install any other adblocker).

    if you need an antivirus, just get bitdefender or something. basic windows defender does fine. Avast is a scam. No one should ever install it. if it comes preinstall, it should be uninstalled.

    Oh no, does this apply on the Avast mobile security too?
    I somehow managed to bypass it now with Chrome, not too sure why it didn't work before but should I change the avast anti-virus on my phone? Any reccs on a good mobile anti-virus?
    Edit: NVM! I celebrated too early, it's still reported as malicious just a few secs later :meowpuffytears:

    get rid of anything avast.
    for your phone it's more complicated...if it's an android, try adguard. for iphone, you can try brave browser. it has an inbuild adblock.

    I have deleted all the adblocks and antivirus I had on my laptop and installed ones that you recommended. It worked.

    Thank you).
    Just a small question would you like to be friends with me? I would love to get to know you more, if you want of course. Not accepting is fine as well.
