Getting a Cloudflare error when sharing my website on social media


My website gets a 403 responsde code on Facebook open graph debugger : Sharing Debugger - Meta for Developers

Below is a screeshot :

Any help is appreciated, thanks


You’d need to check your Firewall Rules to see if there is any that might be blocking, challenging, or JS challenging Facebook crawler. Facebook is not in the CF list of known bots, so if you have a firewall rule you’d need to whitelist Facebook IP address or ASN somehow. You can do this in the rule itself, using an Allow rule placed above it, or with an IP Access rule.

Holy moly that worked. I had some countries set as “challage with captcha”… countries i know have no use in my website. When i remove those rules, the debugger just scans it correct.
