Hi Guys

Just trying to get a new site active, it is connected to my domain name and the SSL is active, but when trying to access the site, I get the following warning. The domain name is hosted with WebCentral and the only help they can offer is that Squarespace need to request Google to "decrawl" the site. Any help greatly appreciated. This is an e-commerce site so must be secure!

I get the following warning [“Deceptive site ahead”]

When Google suspects a site of hosting dangerous or spammy downloads, engaging in practices that are bad or dangerous to the user, or of being hacked, users see this warning.

Have you verified your site with Google Search Console yet? When you’ve done this, click Security issues within Search Console to see warnings in the Security Issues report for your site.

I'm having a similar issue - Google Search Console show deceptive content error, though I do not get the warning when visiting the site. I have verfied the site in Squarespace. Any suggestions on what might cause this. Report details who N/A in sample URLs and give only generic info in description. Should I just request a reivew?  I can find nothing that is incorrect at the moment. Thanks for you help.
