Security Alert

website name Information you exchange...


The security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site. Carefully verify the URL you are using is correct and not some subtle variation that is directed to a potentially harmful site.  If your are absolutely sure the URL is valid, you may go into the site anyway, but please be cautious, especially if asked for any passwords or personal information.

Certificates are a major pain (and cost) for website owners, but it does help authenticate that the site is from the company listed in the certificate. It's easy for a valid company to go afoul of the certificate security system, so it is possible the site is legitimate.

Use the Correct URL
    Add    Flag

Check that the website URL address for the website is spelled correctly and matches what you have used successfully in the past.

If you had previously bookmarked the valid site, you may want to launch it from the bookmark instead.

In some cases the URL is wrong and misspelled in a subtle way, such as swapping the digit zero and the letter 'O', switching a lower case "L" and the digit one, or perhaps adding or removing symbols such as underlines or dashes.
