I use the web and mobile versions of Facebook's Messenger. This morning I opened the Messenger app on my tablet without any problems and Emsisoft Mobile Security did not even blink. A few minutes later I powered down the tablet and opened Google Chrome which starts with a pinned page - www.messenger.com and which automatically signs me in. But, the site was blocked - please see the attachment. I've done a web search but cannot see any articles about the site being compromised. Is this a mis-categorised site?

It was more than likely blocked by a mistake on a blacklist. We import rules from certain blacklists that are usually trustworthy, however sometimes a legitimate website will end up on one of them by mistake.
