What happens to dangerous sites?

Hi All

Just noticed that siteadvisor is available through our grant no so am testing it now.

I was wondering what does siteadvisor do when a site is reported as linking/ containing dangerous content? Does it just warn the user and still let them through or does it block them?

Any test site to try?

Unless you have the "Plus" (paid) version it will only warn you. In the paid version one can enable protected mode and then it will actively prevent you from going directly to such a website.
