CertCheck.Me helps you understand security warnings and evaluate the risks involved if you choose to override them.

Ever been browsing the internet and seen one of those screens that say, "This Connection is Untrusted" or "Your connection is not private?"

And then you're faced with different options: "Get me out of here!" or "Back to safety" on the one hand, or "I Understand the Risks...add Exception" or "Advanced...proceed to site (unsafe)" on the other.

What to do?

Should you leave? Or is it ok to ignore the warning and go on to the site? What are you risking if you do? What does it mean when your browser tells you that a site's certificate is invalid, or that its identity can't be verified?

CertCheck.me is designed to help you better understand these security warnings and evaluate the risks involved if you choose to override them.

It's called Certcheck because it focuses on a crucial component of secure Web browsing: the certificate. It also lets you play around a bit so you can safely explore how your browser responds when presented with different types of certificates
