Check The Category of A URL
Check a URL for its category and safety status. Found a Miscategorization? Report It!
At zvelo, we take great pride in the accuracy of our categorization and quality assurance processes. This results in incredibly low miscategorization (miscat) rates. We strive to deliver the most accurate URL database available; however, with any system—domains and URLs can change and miscats are inevitable. We’ve designed our systems and processes to rapidly address reports of miscats—and we treat these as a high priority.
