Why is Safari suddenly blocking websites?
My sister had some trouble getting into the local branch of her bank, and she called their technical support.
Their tech support was really helpful, but they told her that it seemed like Safari had been updated to block a particular web domain she used. My sister went back and forth with them and tried different versions of Safari on two of our Macs, but neither of us could get into that site. I am hoping that I can figure out what site she was trying to go to, or even how she was able to get into that site in the first place, but I cannot find any information about this specific site on the web or any other kind of information that might help me. Any suggestions?
Safari blocks websites because you have added sites to the "block list" in the "Safety" section of Preferences. To do this on your iOS device, scroll down to the bottom and tap on "Edit". Next tap on "Add Blocked Website." from the popup list. Type in the URL for the site you want blocked. You can even add a simple name for the site instead of a URL. After you enter the URL or name for the site you want to block, scroll to the bottom of the list and tap on "Add". The site will now be blocked. When you tap on a link in safari the message "This page isn't responding", should show instead. (This is assuming that the web server has been properly configured to redirect users to the login page for the domain you are wanting to block).
If you'd rather not mess with Safety, you can also use the built-in browser "Open in.", to change the homepage back to "safari.com" and change the Safari home page from "" to whatever you like. However, if your computer doesn't have internet access, this option is not available to you.
I've had the same issue, and as far as I can tell the only way to resolve it is to delete the offending websites from the Safari settings under safety > add blocked website.
Why is my iPhone suddenly blocking websites?
Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is interfering with your web browsing.
No, not like that! We're talking about Safari blocking websites. Sometimes you'll see a page that loads for a few seconds, then disappears. When you click open in browser, the page reappears.
If you have a Wi-Fi-only iPad 3, try plugging it into a Wi-Fi network, and see if the problem goes away. If you get pages that load fine and then freeze, try updating Safari on your iPhone or iPad. There is one final option to try if you haven't already: reset your network settings. When you reset your network settings, you might see an additional item in your WiFi settings, but just click Reset Network Settings. That's all there is to it.
The Fix: Reset your network settings. If you try all of these options, and none of them work, try resetting your network settings. Open the Settings app, then go to General > Reset Network Settings. This will clear your network settings for all devices on your network, so you'll need to connect your iPad to Wi-Fi first.

How do I stop Safari from blocking websites on my iPhone?
I use my iPhone for work all day and every day and on top of that I use it for my personal life as well.
It's a lot of work, especially if I want to work with any kind of software or just be productive at all. So when it's time for me to take a break from work I want to be able to easily disconnect from the world and go home and enjoy my family. The problem is my iPhone is blocking websites that it's not supposed to block. Is there any way to stop Safari from blocking websites that I'm not using?
Here is what I do. Disable Safari's automatic blocking. Change the default website in Safari.e. Add sites that are allowed. When I need to go to a blocked site I either: a) Open the app I need to use (if it's not already open). B) Launch Safari from the app I need to use (If I'm using an app like Twitter or Tumblr). Some websites/apps, like YouTube and Netflix are constantly changing their content so there's no way for me to know what is blocked and what isn't. I also want to mention that when I am using my iPhone in this fashion (when I'm on my break from work) it's actually very frustrating because I can't access all of the sites I use on a daily basis. I've tried disabling and enabling iPhone notifications but that didn't work. Any ideas on how I can stop Safari from blocking websites on my iPhone? Thanks! I don't think the issue is you having sites blocked on your iPhone, but rather that it appears to be blocking them for you in Safari.e. You can use the steps described above to correct this.
I have used the following options and none of them worked for me. It's like I can't make any websites I want to access work unless I use the iPhone in a certain way. When I use the method that you describe above, I can get to the website I want to go to.
I use the same steps that you describe in your first reply. I went into the Safari settings and disabled "Block Automatically Open Safe Browsing URL". Then I also disabled "Block Automatically Open Safari when browsing".
