This site is not secure.... How to bypass?

I visit a lot of company websites that require logging in with a common access card. These websites do not provide any type of certificate information for security reasons so the browser always thinks the website is not secure. IE10 used to allow me to bypass the message by clicking "continue to this website anyway" but that's not an option in IE11. How do I bypass this error? The websites are secure. I get this same error on all the company websites, all 20+ of them. I am able to access them on a different computer which runs IE11 though.



When you receive the error message "The site is not secure. This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately.", it is possible that this means the certificate is not installed correctly or is expired and the site has not renewed it. It is also possible that the website has been compromised and there is a malicious redirection.

For troubleshooting steps to help resolve this error message in Internet Explorer 11, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Open your Internet Explorer and click the gear icon on the upper right side of the page.
  2. Select Internet Options and click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Settings, look for Security.
  4. Remove the check marks on Check for publisher's certificate revocation, Check for server certificate revocation and Check for signatures on downloaded programs.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click OK.
