Banking Protection activating on regular non-banking/payment sites
Recntly my FS Banking Protection has been activating when I'm on just a regular site. This just started happening the past couple/few days. This had happened before a while ago. But then stopped. But now its happening again. Yesterday I was in Open Office typing a letter and the Banking Protection all the sudden activated. That was a little weird.
Another time I was going through my email and all the sudden the Banking Protection activated. While I was in my inbox. I hadn't clicked on any links in any emails. I was in the main email inbox. But then a few minutes later I went to go into my bank account to check my activity and the Banking Protection didn't activate. But then later I was on a site that asked for banking/credit card info and it activated on that site. So it almost seems a little random as if or when it wants to activate for sites it should and shouldn't activate for.
Again, I remember something like this happening a while ago where it would activate on just regular sites but then wouldn't activate on all banking/shopping/payment sites that it normally would.
I'm on a Windows 7 desktop computer. Not sure if this has happened to anyone else. But thought I'd write about since its happened a good bit lately.
I just received a FS update earlier today and was hoping that would fix it. But apparently it didn't.
I can't say I've had that issue, but something was reported with regards BP blocking SMTP the other day here:
Have you submitted a bug report? That might be the best thing to do.
How / where does one submit a bug report?
I have the same problem
Ok, thanks Simon, I'll do that. I wasn't sure if mine was just isolated incedents(only happening to me). I guess I was going to see if it was happening to anyone else too. And, I did see that someone else say it was happening to them too. So I will go ahead an submit a bug report then. Thanks!
