Every time I log in here on my phone (which is most of the time) I get a pop up message telling me there's a problem with the site's security.certificate, and asking me if I want to continue.

I'm on a Samsung galaxy s2. Is it just my phone or are others experiencing this too?

I get the same on my desktop computer. I remember a thread not too long ago where a few other people were saying the same thing. I never saw if it was actually resolved though shrug.gif

Happens every time I open EB on my Samsung phone, but never on my PC.

Well I'm glad it's not just me!

My phone internet has started playing up since I started accessing EB from my phone so I was wondering if the security issue was linked - it might not be though.

If you've experienced this error, could you please tell me what internet service provider or telecommunications network you use?

Thanks

yyes.gif I blame Optus for everything that goes wrong, stupid slow constantly dropping out Internet.

Yes my HTC phone does the same thing, and yes it is Optus. It doesn't happen on my ipad or computer even if I am using my phone as a hotspot though.

As I said, I'm in a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I'm with Virgin.

However looking at responses so far they seem pretty divided. And I've never experienced this issue on any other site - and I use my phone's internet a LOT.

This happens to me only on my Samsung Galaxy phone (I was with Optus, now TPG, still have it come up) I don't have the issue on my laptop (dodo internet).

Thanks everyone for reporting your providers/carriers and machines/devices.

We're investigating this issue right now, but need a bit more information.

Please could you help us get to the bottom of this?

(for the mobile users)
- Your operating system (Android, iPhone, etc)
- Your browser (Standard, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc)

(for the desktop users)
- The version of your operating system (Windows XP, Vista, 7, MacOs, etc)
- The version and name of your web browser (eg IE 7).

And any further details regarding the error, such as specific messages about the SSL certificate. (Screenshots welcome!)

Thanks very much for your help.

Desktop: Windows vista & IE 9

The error message I get is:

Internet explorer blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors.

Hope that helps!

Hi all,

our tech have determined that the error is due to old Facebook code on our pages. This will be fixed when the new version of the forum launches in the next few weeks.

Regards,
Amber
