How to change Brave settings to access blocked sites

I came to a site that Brave blocked indicating it is “not secure”. I went to Settings | Privacy and Security and changed the “safe browsing” from “standard” to “no protection”.

Nothing changed. Can’t access the site.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for reaching out to us.
Definitely do not turn of safe browsing – I highly recommend keeping it on as it keeps you safe from dangerous/malicious sites.

For the site in question, would you mind sharing the link so that I can take a look on my end?

Sure, here it is:

It’s a computer retail & repair store in my neighborhood lol

So I am not able to land on this site either, but I’m not being warned about it. Rather, I seem to land on what appears to be an unused domain/placeholder:

I get the same results in both Chrome and Brave. Can you share a screenshot of what you see on your end?

The place I used to work at has an unsecured site. Brave opens it up with no problem though indicates that It’s unsecure. I guess this techshield site is just screwed up.

All I get is a blank screen. It’s not really a problem. I just needed their phone number which I got from Google. No need to go further with this.

Thanks a lot Mattches. <3


This is my first post here. How do I get to settings so I can change my avatar, etc?

Alternatively, you can go to the URL directly :slight_smile:
