Question

Firefox warning message?

"Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party."

Came up while I was buying something online. The website I had to click the button below in order to complete my purchase..then this message came up. I've already been charged for it so I don't know if I should just click CONTINUE..

What should I do?

Thanks!

Click continue. It just means that the webpage is encrypted and your information is encrypted, but your actual internet connection is NOT encrypted, so it is possible for someone to get your encrypted info. However, it is extremely difficult to crack the encryption, so don't worry about it.

Short answer, don't worry about it. Your info is encrypted so it is secure and you are protected. Go ahead and click Continue.

The webpage has assets that originate from a 3rd party, which are not encrypted.

This is a normal condition, and USUALLY not a big deal, but there are potential risks.

It helps to turn off 3rd party cookies. Look in browser> Tools> Options> Privacy.
