    Every time I use Hubpages, I always receive warning alert from AVG. I often ignore it but constant warnings just made me post this. Is Hubpages really safe to share personal information.

      Depending on what the personal information is, not sure what the AVG is

        Anti Virus Guard. Am I right? You are the first person I have ever known of to get an alert from AVG. I have been with HP for now going on four years and I have yet to get an alert from AVG.
        It is worth inspection.

      I think it was because I also had AVG Secure toolguard extension for web browser installed. but when I clicked on the Learn more link of the warning. I was taken to this website.

      This is a false positive related to Heartbleed, an issue that never affected HubPages.
      The AVG warning is in error.

    According to HubPages, this is an error on AVG's part.

    I posted a comment on AVG's blog, but haven't heard back.

    I've heard, deep down, it thinks it's not as pretty as other sites.

    I get this warning message too on every single HubPages page that I visit.  According to Matt, HubPages is secure and AVG is delivering a false positive.
