Message about a certificate issue when opening a website

Back to "Troubleshooting"
2019 Jan 24 ID: 14584

If a message appears about a certificate issue when you open a website, it means the website might not be secure. Should this be the case, your account details and other personal information could be stolen by criminals. We therefore recommend that you don’t open websites with certificate issues. 

A certificate is a digital signature which ensures that the user’s connection to the website is encrypted. It also confirms that the website is genuine.  

If you are certain that the website is safe, click Continue or I understand the risks and wish to continue.

“Cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain to which encrypted connection is established” message

If you want to exclude the website from encrypted connections scanning, install a Kaspersky Lab application with extended features, such as Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky Total Security.
