I know it's a very small thing but it's infuriating to have to acknowledge the "danger" of leaving upwork everytime you follow a client link to references (plus 99% of the time it's either vimeo, imgur, pinterest, or youtube).
With the amount of people who are scammed on Upwork on a regular basis, I don't see this reminder going away anytime soon. It serves as a reminder to think twice before browsing to an external link, and I find it helpful.
If desired, you can copy and paste the URL from the Upwork messaging app and paste it into your browser. You should do this at your own risk.
Thank you for your suggestion. The team has considered and tested an option to skip the warning for 30 days, however, for security reasons weren't able to proceed with it.
