    Hello @surba

    Welcome to the F-Secure Community page. Thank you for your post.

    The Binance website is categorized as banking, hence why the banking protection is activated when you visited the website.

    Banking Protection adds another layer of security when banking online and/or carrying out online money transactions.

    When using Banking Protection, every website you enter is checked by querying our Security Cloud. By carrying out this check, Banking Protection gets the information on whether the site is listed as one of our trusted banking sites or not. If it is, a notification is shown indicating that you are entering an online banking site secured with https and that Banking Protection deems the site safe for you to use.

    When you start your next online banking session, Banking Protection automatically gets activated again.

    Note: On the PC, Banking Protection offers an elevated level of security. Once you have started an online banking session and the Banking Protection mode has been activated, Banking Protection disconnects all untrusted applications from the Internet and prevents them from reconnecting while on a trusted banking site. Blocking connections prevents hijacking of your banking sessions keeping your money safe. You can also only access websites that are considered safe during a banking session, otherwise, they get blocked.

    However, if you want to turn off the banking protection, you may do that from the settings as described in this article https://community.f-secure.com/safe-en/kb/articles/5201-how-do-i-turn-banking-protection-on-or-off-windows, anyhow, it is not possible to exclude a single website for the banking protection.

    Please be reminded, if you turn off the banking protection, it will not be triggered even if you visit a banking website unless you turn it back on from the settings.

    Kindly let me know if this helps.

    Thank you and have a heavenly day.
