Question about malwarebytes website blocking

As the title says I have a question about malwarebytes website blocking, I didn't find anything on the website about it. Does anyone know anything about it?

All I know is that it locks me out of certain websites. They simply won't load.

As I understand it, they use a database of supposed "attack" websites that is constantly revised. I can't say how valid that information is.

I'm not sure if you can "whitelist" a website so it will load regardless.

My preferred method of dong so is to use OpenDNS.

You can whitelist individual IP addresses that are blocked.

After an IP block popup message,
right-click on the Malwarebytes system-tray icon, and choose Add to Ignore List.

Here is the link to the MBAM forum documentation for this:
