Hi @nicedev,

It seems Google has detected your website as potentially dangerous. This behavior is usually experienced when your website is or has been recently hacked.

One other thing is you need an SSL for your website. If you don’t have an SSL, you’ll need to install one. DigitalOcean has a really good article on how you can do so. You can check it here :

As for the first, if after installing the SSL, you can check that with Google and see what are they picking up as dangerous.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Let's Encrypt to obtain a free SSL certificate and use it with Nginx on Ubuntu 18.04. We will also show you how to automatically renew your SSL certificate. If you're running a different web server, simply follow your web server's documentation to learn how to use the certificate with your setup.
