Receiving Your Connection is Not Private

Issue/Question

I am receiving the following message when browsing the Internet:

Your connection is not private. 

Environment

  • Web Browser

Cause

Your browser cannot verify whether a website is safe to visit. Your browser issues this warning message to prevent you from visiting the site, because visiting an unsafe or unsecure site may put your personal information at risk.

Resolution

Proceed with caution to the website that you are trying to visit. If you trust the site, you may continue to use and/or browse the site. It is highly advised to not input any sensitive information (name, date of birth, credit card numbers, etc...) into any fields of websites that state that your connection is not private. To ensure that you have a private connection make sure that your web browsers are fully updated as well as your computer's Operating System. It may be necessary to restart your networking equipment or contact the website owner / webmaster in cases where the problem cannot be resolved on your personal computer. This can be an indicator that there is something wrong with the website itself.
