Does Freedome protect me from this sort of hacked website?
Hi all. I'm about one week into my trial of Freedome (on OS X and iOS), and am impressed.
Hopefully this will have been fixed by the time anyone reads this post, but last night, when navigating to pasadenasymphony-pops.org (note no www prefix), I realized that Safari on my iPhone was instead redirecting me to a bogus site. Typing in the full www.pasadenasymphony-pops.org, however, worked fine. The Google Transparency Report said "Some pages on pasadenasymphony-pops.org contain deceptive content right now."
1. Should I have expected Freedome to identify the bogus site as suspicious or harmful, and prevent it from loading?
2. If no, had I then clicked on one of those links on the hijacked page, would Freedome have intercepted that click?
And for extra credit:
3. Hasn't it been years since it was necessary to type in http://www. at the front of a URL? What's different about this site that the presence or absence of the prefix would send the URL in two different directions?
