How to disable website not trusted

We can include This website might not be trusted by your browser pop-up message in the most common network issues.

If you are sure that the error occurred while you try to navigate towards a trusted webpage, don’t hesitate and learn how to add that website to the browser-trusted sites list.

As already outlined, this system alert can be addressed if you include the webpage into your browser-trusted sites list.

And here is how you can do that on the most popular web browser apps available for Windows 10.

But first, did you know there is a web browser out there that automatically redirects you to the secured version of the websites you’re trying to visit?


Opera takes you straight to secure HTTPS version of websites

The core of the issue with Trusted or Untrusted websites concerns HTTP or HTTPS encryption protocols.

The former one being outdated and posing some security risks while the latter is modern and works under a secured SSL certificate.

You can avoid visiting outdated websites with Opera which automatically redirects you to secure HTTPS. Keeping you safe at all times while staying reclusive.

Add the 2048 bit RSA encryption key for SSL certificates (standard browsers have 1024 bit encryption) and you can safely roam the internet without worrying about a thing.

Or being frequently interrupted by an annoying prompt.

You can see everything firsthand, by downloading the Opera and trying it out today.

Unfortunately, on Microsoft Edge, the trusted sites facility can’t be accessed because it’s not featured within the browser.

What you can do is to add the webpage as a trusted site in Internet Explorer and re-open it afterward in Microsoft Edge. We know that this is not a real fix, but for now, that’s all you can do.

Similar steps can be followed on other web browser clients too.

The general idea remains the same: when getting This website might not be trusted by your browser security alert, you need to include the affected webpage into the trusted sites list.

Otherwise, the web browser will prevent any further access.

Now, you know how a certain webpage can be added to the trusted list. So, that’s how you can fix the annoying pop-up error.

Remember that you should always choose to set additional security settings for making sure that your files and your identity are protected.

In that matter, we recommend you to enable Firewall protection and to install an antivirus or antimalware software with browsing filtering features activated.
