Whitelisted (permanently)

This page is permanently whitelisted, meaning the domain is on the Allowed Sites list at http://my.winstonprivacy.com/allowed. Winston is not blocking anything on this page.

 mceclip3.png

Whitelisted (temporarily)

This page is temporarily whitelisted, meaning the domain is on the Allowed Sites list at http://my.winstonprivacy.com/allowed. Winston is not blocking anything on this page.

 mceclip4.png

Blocked

The page is blocked, meaning the domain is on the Blocked Sites list at http://my.winstonprivacy.com/blocked.

 mceclip5.png

Revealed (permanently)

The page itself is not blocked, but the Block Location permanently option was selected and internet traffic involving this domain is not routed over the Distributed Privacy Mesh Network, therefore the IP address is not cloaked.

 mceclip6.png

Revealed (temporarily)

The page itself is not blocked, but the Block Location temporarily option was selected (vial the option to right click on a page where the extension is enabled) and internet traffic involving this domain is not routed over the Distributed Privacy Mesh Network, therefore the IP address is not cloaked.

Placeholder

Winston is determining the status of a domain. This icon appears briefly when a page is loaded, but when the status of a domain is retrieved this icon is replaced with the correct one.
