It seems that my security software has recently decided that BYC is unsafe. When I try to go the the website I get an error like this (if on Chrome)

Or this (if on Safari).

It only happens when I use my laptop (Macbook Air running OS X El Capitan). And the issue only started recently. Oh and I use Bitdefender.
I guess my question is, did something change recently that would explain why my laptop is in a snit? I can force my laptop to visit the page anyway but having to do that every few minutes is a real pain.

What in the world is bit defender? I'd bet it is your problem.
Bit defender is my security software. I have used it for years. It is good stuff. Plus now that I have dug a little deeper, it seems like maybe the warning is coming from the web browsers themselves and not through bit defender.

Is this similar to an ad blocker thing?

No. Not at all. It has nothing to do with ads and doesn't interfere with content unless there is a legitimate threat. It is just a security system for your computer. It protects you from hackers, malware etc.

If it helps, I just checked the browser extension I use from Bitdefender and it has no issue with BYC 🥳 So the warnings about security seem to be coming from my web browsers not from my antiviral software.
