Protected browsing

If I turn off protected browsing, will my network be in danger? Apparently there are gaming websites that cannot be accessed with it on.

Re: Protected browsing

Although there are instances where false positives come into play and websites are blocked by mistake, most are blocked for a legitimate reason. If you bypass that protection, you could indeed be putting your devices in harm's way. Some research on your part should help you decide whether or not the risks outweigh the rewards.
