How to disable sitecheck2.opera.com

  • I want to disable the fraud protection and I cant find any option in flags to disable it.

  • Block the domain in the firewall or hosts file.

  • Opera is sending every url to sitecheck, even zooming in and out in google maps. Just seen it in TCPView from sysinternals.

  • That's how its phishing / scam protection works.

  • [Sarcasm]But my anti-virus software scans everything I download or copy onto my computer ?.[/sarcasm]

  • Opera has nothing to do with users url being sent to Opera servers without their permission, this needs to stop.

  • Yes, this sitecheck feature should have the ability to be disabled! For privacy issues.

  • Are you guys talking about opera://flags/#disable-hyperlink-auditing ?!

    I disabled it and Opera is still sending all the urls to sitecheck2.opera.com

    I already told you how to disable it. 🙂

    url being sent to Opera servers without their permission

    You agreed to use Opera then you agreed to use its anti-pishing protection.

  • It's very simple to stop opera site-check from accessing your private information.

    1. Get a new browser
    2. Get a network filter eg. Little Snitch (mac) or Antivirus eg. (AVG) or directly edit your firewall settings and add http://sitecheck2.opera.com to deny connections, that way everytime sitecheck attempts to access your browsing, privacy... It fails.

    Not when neither Opera's EULA nor the privacy policy makes any mention of this feature. Please correct me if I am mistaken, but users would not even know it existed without reading topics like this, monitoring their network traffic, or in rare cases being presented with an actual warning message.

    Blocking certain domains is not a real solution, for they could change without notice. If sitecheck2 is used today, there was presumably once a first version and there might be a third one in the future. Also, waiting for these connections to fail might even slow down browsing. Therefore, please add a proper option to disable it.

  • it's very easy to disable sitecheck2. start opera permanent in privacy mode with commandline switch -private
    "opera.exe -private"

    wow, the normal dumb sheeple comment, not worth to argue anymore....

    YES, absolutely correct!

    NO it's not like as easy.
    if you block the fucking sitecheck domain in little snitch, opera isn't really useable anymore!!!!!!
    it's unbelievable and without words......

    there's really NO single browser out there (for os x), who is not overload with tons of plugin shit, animation shit, extension shit etc. plus every developer thoughts, every chimpanzees needs the option to work with their software.

    if the user isn't able to understand a pc, internet and the traffic, then it's their pitch!
    or why do the fuck we need a driving test???????
    if not, there'll be millions of killed people on the streets EVERY day, cause the mass is dumb and will be dumb if they doesn't want to learn!!!
    that's what life is for, among other things off course
