You are being redirected

The message "You are being redirected" means that your page or website has a bot protection enabled. On login/admin pages, such as wp-login.php, this message will always be displayed, unless the IP address of the visitor is whitelisted.

In case you are seeing this message when sharing a post at Facebook or Google, it means that you left the "Emergency DDoS Protection" enabled in the Security options.

WAF Emergency DDoS Option

If you keep this filter activated all the time, it’ll do more harm than good. It’s only necessary during some rare types of DDoS attack, for which the Sucuri Firewall team will instruct you to activate it if you don’t have a good cache configuration.

The solution is to disable the "Emergency DDoS Protection" in the Security tab of the Firewall dashboard and wait a couple minutes.
