NETGEAR Armor blocks Sudoku and Smartnews URLs

Starting 3 days ago, NETGEAR Armor began blocking URLs when playing Sudoku and reading Smartnews on my iPhone.  Sudoku URL blocked:  trk118.onnur.xyz.  Smartnews URL blocked:  smartnews.link.  NETGEAR Armor has also begun blocking URL:  if.singularityfds.club on my husband's iPhone.  Now, I'm getting upwards of 80 warnings within a 10 minute period when playing Sudoko or reading Smartnews.  Why is NETGEAR suddenly identifying these as bad and blocking them?  What do I do?

Re: NETGEAR Armor blocks Sudoku and Smartnews URLs

I decided to unblock the URLs that NETGEAR Armor is blocking because they are https and having looked them up on Google's Safe Browsing Transparency site, there is no indication that they are SPAM.  

 

However, NETGEAR Armor is still blocking them as SPAM even though they are clearly on the unblock list. These are being blocked on my husbands iPhone, but not on mine. They are being blocked when he plays Sudoku or is on SmartNews.

https://trk132.onnur.xyz

https://if.singularityfds.club

 

The only one that is no longer blocked on either of our iPhones (meaning the unblock feature is working) is https://smartnews.link

 

Also, I use the SmartNews app all the time and NETGEAR Armor has not blocked any URLs when I am on it (it was blocking the https://smartnews.link until I added it to the unblock list).
