"Deceptive Site Ahead"
h
CubeyTheCube

I was coding when randomly chrome said this:

Deceptive site ahead
Attackers on 8ceb347a-67da-460d-8570-83b5047f526d.id.replitusercontent.com 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.

updates:

  • [replname]--[username].repl.co changed to [id].id.replitusercontent.com

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].repl.co

Coder100

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

codingjlu

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

Coder100

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

codingjlu

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

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

Google Safe Browsing services has created this warning message in order to protect its users from browsing unsafe online content. This message usually means that your website is hacked and Google has marked it insecure. These sites are often called phishing or malware sites.

You can visit a page or access a downloaded file that shows a warning. This isn't recommended.

Visit an unsafe page
On your computer, open Chrome.
On the page where you see a warning, click Details.
Click Visit this unsafe site.
The page will load.

When you visit an unsafe site, Chrome will try to remove the unsafe content from the page.

The adware behind the fake Deceptive Site Ahead alerts is not an ingenious virus. It cannot install itself. No, it needs your approval to enter. So, it uses a lot of trickery to gain your permission. It usually hitches a ride with other software. So, pay close attention when browsing the Internet, and when downloading/installing software.

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...

McJoe21

It worked for me just fine on chrome android

NotMrMan

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.

Just stop being deceptive lol

@Ganesha1 Damn thanks. I'm sory for ddosing repl.it /s

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.
