Disable certificate checking in IE9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to disable certificate checking in IE9? I have tons of internal applications that keep giving me the typical cert warning, it's annoying and I don't need that.  And no, it's not a time sync issue, and I'm not asking how to install a cert, and changing the Advanced options don't work.

    I just want to completely and permanently disable cert checking.

  • Please read my post before throwing me generic canned answers.  I am not looking to fix an issue with general browsing.  I am asking how to disable Internet Explorer's behavior of warning and blocking SSL sites with any type of cert error.

  • As we all know the certificate checking could not be changed:

    About certificate errors

    “Can I turn off certificate checking?
    No, you can't turn off certificate checking in Internet Explorer. If you're receiving certificate errors, it means the website you're visiting is having certificate problems and it doesn't indicate a problem with Internet Explorer.”

    Therefore, I think we need to check the server or certificate side. As you mentioned the "internal applications", please check them on design and see if this will be helpful on the issue.

  • I get the certificate error on this web page. Asking Nicholas Li to answer the original question, how do you disable the message.

  • To disable all of the potential certification errors, open Internet Explorer 9 and click on 'tools' > ‘Internet Options’ > ‘Advanced’ button. Uncheck the boxes ‘warn about certificate mismatch,’ ‘warn about invalid site certificates’ and ‘Enable SmartScreen Filter.’

    This will stop any certificate verification issues you have. HOWEVER, it will make IE9 more vulnerable to viruses and attacks.

    Proceed with caution and good luck.
