How to Bypass ‘Deceptive Site Ahead’ Google Chrome Error

Fix Deceptive Site Ahead Error

Deceptive Site ahead: Google Chrome has just edged past Internet Explorer as the most preferred browser and this is one of the many cases where Google has proven their top position. For Apple they have Safari browser but that isn’t that popular. One of the main feature why people prefer Google Chrome is that they have adapted to technology changes. One major reason why I like Chrome browser is the ability to sync bookmarks, logins and other data effectively on different devices, it has given me freedom to work from anywhere, just enter your email ID and all the relevant data will be available, quick and fast.

Why This Notification

One of the latest features that Google Chrome has added to their web browser is the Safe Browsing technology. It’s also known by other names as ‘Deceptive site ahead warning‘ notification. It can be detected on Safari, Mozilla Firefox, UC and other browsers. It is designed to flag deceptive sites which might install unknown software or reveal your personal information.

The error look like this –

Deceptive Site AheadWhile all things are good and we respect this wonderful move by Google, but this latest addition to Google Chrome security, it’s showing up wrong notifications for many sites. For instances, our site did show up this error which we don’t use any other JavaScript or code apart from Google AdSense. Sad! 🙁 Many bloggers in the past have even complained of it and once you are caught in this error, it’s painful to remove it. Alternatively, the site works perfectly on other browsers like Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

Last Resort

Your last chance to bypass deceptive site error

If your site issue isn’t fixed in the second attempt, then consider this as a final option to get back your site. Follow it very carefully –

  • First take a backup of your website with all the posts, pages, and media and then delete the account. There are a number of ways to do it, the best that I can recommend is through cPanel. Login to your cPanel and head to Backup & Restore. Download ‘MySQL Database‘ and ‘Email forwarders‘ backup. For safe protection I would recommend you to take ‘Home directory‘ backup. You can refer official cPanel documentation.
  • Delete your WordPress install through your cPanel or ask hosting provider to reset account to default.
  • Now start freshly, with WordPress installed and no article on your site.
  • Submit a detection report for the final time.

Your website will be now fresh and definitely it has no harmful links or content and Google will definitely accept your request.

Afterwards, when your site gets back online, you can restore the backup. Ideally wouldn’t recommend you to restore the backup but you can do it at your own risk by scanning each post of your site carefully. But again let me remind you that you should scan your site completely so that it doesn’t have any malicious or deceptive code or link.

    Someone suggested, go for Mazilla Firefox browser: I am using a Linx 7 windows 8.1 TABLET, with Google chrome and 3 installments of AddBlocker to stop bad popups.
    Should I download Mazilla Firefox and all should work again, not forgetting to install Addon AddBlocker first? Will this solve the problem, please?
    I am new to all of this, so please give full details and guide me step by step. Thank you.
