"Deceptive Site Ahead"
CubeyTheCube (24)

I was coding when randomly chrome said this:

Deceptive site ahead
Attackers on may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards). Learn more

Why did this happen and what can I do to fix it?

(I had to remove the link to the repl because it wouldn't let me go to this webpage if I didn't)

Yeah, replit recently changed how they hosted their websites.


  • [replname]--[username] changed to [id]

obviously this is an easy pattern for phishing, so that's why chrome blocked it.

What can you do? Use a different browser, clear your cookies, click on advanced > accept risks and enter

@Coder100 Really?? (it's probably because you have hacker) but for me it's still [replname].[username]

Coder100 (18178)

no, previously that embedded website in the editor was with the --. It can be opened into . @codingjlu

codingjlu (216)

@Coder100 I tried replacing . with -- but it didn't work?

Coder100 (18178)

yeah, my comment literally stated, they moved -- to [id] @codingjlu

codingjlu (216)

@Coder100 Yeah but I just created a new html repl and it still is [replname].[replusername]

@GatewayDuckYT I can view it there, but I can't code.

CubeyTheCube (24)

@GatewayDuckYT I replaced it with an empty repl.

@GatewayDuckYT sorry but you can't ask people to mark it as the answer.


Try looking at @SudhanshuMishra's post: Attackers are trying to attack me 😥😥. You might find some good awnsers

Not sure if this works for every safety error, but on chrome you can type THISISUNSAFE and it might fix your problem...

It worked for me just fine on chrome android

I had the same issue, but I solved it.
Have you embedded/linked gmail or any google service in one of your sites?

I had to appeal to Google, because they banned my subdomain.

I'm pretty sure it does this due to the large combination of text and numbers at the beginning. There is no way really to fix this other than to send it to google. not saying that you should do this to report it as a malicious site, I'm saying to report it to show Google that they need to fix their algorithm.
