Since the new changes I'm getting an average of 2 of these messages pop up per day (I'm on here a lot so it's not constant!). Always the same message

Cannot verify server identity
The identity of "" cannot be verified by safari. Review the certificate details to continue.

Then I can either choose to cancel, view details or continue

I've been choosing cancel and the MN page has loaded as normal.
I'm using the latest version of safari on an iPad, not using the app.

Wondering if tech have got their wires crossed a little bit somewhere (or someone at MNHQ has their eye on a new car!)

Hi HypodeemicNerdle - thanks for flagging this. It sounds like it may have been an issue with an ad.

If it happens again, would you be able to take a screenshot for us?
Then we can sent it over to the Ads team to look into.

I have a screenshot but can't work out how to post it, can I email it?

Yes of course. Just drop us a line at and we'll take a look.

Many thanks.

I keep getting this too, but only on my phone not on laptop

Ahh, I just had it again and it IS an Alfa Romeo advert that comes up in the right hand sidebar once I click cancel.
Hopefully it's an easy fix for the techs

This happened to me (again) just now- safari on an iPhone, but using the desktop site.
