I keep getting a security warning flashing up when on mumsnet on my phone.
No other websites are affected. It is a black box which says the name on the security cirtificate Is different from on the site.
Can you advise please.

Doesnt it mean that mumsnet is not a secure site?

MatildaWhispers Sun 01-Jun-14 23:01:27

I have had this over the last few days too, never seen it on mumsnet before that.. Did wonder what has changed.

Hi there,

Could you please let us know what mobiles you're using - iPhone/android/Windows?

We'll get our Tech folk to take a look and post back on here.

Thanks.

I have this- on android, says security certificate expired.
Had it for months, and months though... perhaps 18mo...

Oo was going to post this too! Been happening for at least a couple of weeks on phone. Using a Samsung galaxy android system. Sorry clueless as to what operating system it is.

I get it too. Android phone on mobile site.
I got the option to look at the certificate so did but can't remember what it said!!
Will let you know what if it happens again!!

I am also getting some pop up ads at the top for Postman Pat film. Don't know if they are connected

I get that too. It says that I am on a untrusted site I can view certificate or continue.

I am on a Samsung galaxy too.

starfishmummy Mon 02-Jun-14 08:49:14

Have just got it again. The certificate says it is issued to

Aggregate Knowledge Inc

I am on Samsung galaxy android and had several tabs open. Threads I am on and two chat threads. But have also got it on active threads

starfishmummy Mon 02-Jun-14 08:50:05

Me too. I don't use the app, but I think I use the mobile site.

TheSarcasticFringehead Mon 02-Jun-14 08:56:48

ancientbuchanan Mon 02-Jun-14 15:25:28

Me too, HTC. For some weeks now. Pops up frequently.

I've been getting this for the last couple of weeks. I'm on a samsung galaxy android phone. I've screencapped the warning and the certificate if it is any help.

Thanks for that info, we'll have a dig and see what's occurring.

Please make sure the date and time on your device is correct. This is a known problem on android devices if their date time is not correct. If you still have problems please do post again.
