Hi guys! Can anybody explain to me why I sometimes get this Security Warning dialogue box saying "You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could be read by a third party." I usually get this message whenever I am browsing through the internet.
I don't get it a lot, but it kind of makes me feel uncomfortable whenever I click on OK because as it says on the error message, there might be some information that I am entering on the website which could be ready by a third party.
You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information
that you see or enter on this page could be read by a third party
This is a warning from the computer that you are entering a site that contains some elements that are not encrypted. Since HTML pages come from a lot of sources, if one or two of those elements have http urls instead of https, you will get this message. You can disable this message by arranging the settings of your browser. If you are using IE: Tools>Internet Options>Advanced, then: Override Automatic…>Allow Session Cookies, Allow 1st Party Cookies, Block 3rd Party Cookies. If you are using Firefox: Tools>Options>Privacy then set it to Firefox will custom setting, then check Accept Cookies from Sites and uncheck Accept 3rd Party Cookies. For other browsers, just get to the page where you can set the Cookies.
This alert comes when we want to go in website that contains content which unencrypted or contains non secure content, e.g. images, advertising, that comes from third party website. Sometimes some website contains script which can spread malware or worm. That's the function of this alert. To remind us to be more careful while surfing on the net.
But if you feel bothered with this alert box, you can disable this from Tools> Options> Security> Warning Messages heading> Settings button: uncheck the part about showing both encrypted and non-encrypted> OK (Firefox Setting)
For other browser you can search this warning setting in the Edit > Preferences or Options > Setting by yourself.
After that, setting Allow session cookies; Allow cookies from first parties, and block cookies from third parties.
