Please note that FareHarbor does not support URL masking. To protect you and your customers against clickjacking attacks, we use an extra level of security called an HTTP response header (
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN), which tells web browsers to only display FareHarbor’s content in a frame that has the same origin as the page itself.
