    I keep getting thrown out of JWN and get a huge red warning telling me this is a known fraudulent website. Has anyone else had this issue.

    Hi nugget,

    I am on just about every day 3 or 4 times a day.

    My Windows 7 and Google indicate this is a secure site......... at least it says so way up at the top of the page. In six years never an issue.

    Hope someone with actual experience in firewalls and security issues can help you out.

    Never had that problem with any web browsers in the last 14 years.

    I suggest you clear the cash (cookies) with the browser that your using ie. Firefox IE. Chrome

    then come back and log in

    It sounds like something from a 3rd party - maybe you have signed up for one of these "site reputation" services (browser plugin or extension) that work for non-contentious subjects but tend to be 'gamed' by followers of particular groups. i.e. believing JWs will mark us as "just so very wrong!" because they cannot be objective.

    The irony too is that many of these "trust" websites make money by harvesting and selling your browsing data. Yeah, you need to be careful with who you trust (same with the ad-blockers - turns out it's less of a risk to just allow the ads from trustworthy companies).

    Think about it - when you install a browser extension you allow that to look at and possibly change EVERY SITE YOU VISIT. Is that extension from someone you trust? If it's free and would need infrastructure to support, how do you think they make money?

    This site is secure (uses HTTPS secure connections) and Google provide reports for me if there is any malware detected on it (all clear).
