green or blue check mark

What is the difference between the green and the blue check mark by a website in the Google browser? Or... why do I see a blue check mark by my own website in Google (others sites are green)?

Re: green or blue check mark

Hello,

 

Sorry for my reply. I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).

 

Just as stated with first reply:

an answer, perhaps, is available there:

I think that this is common for normal solution and branded F-Secure solution. For example, my own experience is next:

-> green rating logo is about "safe" rating;

-> blue rating logo is about "allowed" rating;

 

Thus, URL (domain) that is labeled by "blue" rating logo should be visible under "Allowed and denied web sites" list:

It can be "harmful-rated" (or suspicious-rated) website which you allowed ("Enter website" anyway). Or if your experience is about Content blocker (categorization) - then it can be blocked website (certain category) but allowed by you as exception.

 

So, I do able to recommend check your "Allowed and denied web sites" list (main user interface - "Tools" tab or so - "allowed and denied websites" or so).

If your experience is not about such option or is not an explanation for "blue rating" - then it is a bit strange. Good if you will back with feedback.

 

Thanks!
