How to Disable Invalid SSL Certificate Warning

Overview

A SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the standard security technology to establish a secure connection between two systems. It safeguards sensitive data that is being transmitted from your web browser to the webserver or vice versa. This technology encrypts potentially sensitive personal and financial information, making it invisible to criminals' eyes during transmission.

If your web browser cannot validate the SSL certificate, it will issue a warning about an unsafe website or insecure connection. When connecting to your remote.it Instances you don't have to worry about insecure connections like this, and can disable the SSL warnings. 

Find your browser below and follow the steps to disable the Invalid SSL Certificate Warning.

Safari

With Safari, there is no way to completely disable the invalid SSL Certificate Warning. However, if you are getting a "Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server" error, try removing all Website Data from Safari's Privacy Preferences.
