Cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain to which encrypted connection is established

If your Kaspersky security software frequently displays a warning Cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain to which encrypted connection is established, then this post will explain what this means and how you may disable this warning, if you wish to, on your Windows PC.

Cannot guarantee authenticity of the domain to which encrypted connection is established

When you see this warning, it means that there is something wrong with the Certificate of the website. The certificate could have been revoked, or it could have been acquired illegally, or the certificate chain is broken – and so on.

The site may or may not be fraudulent or vulnerable to data interception. While it is recommended that you click on Disconnect, if you are sure that the webpage is safe, you may click Continue to proceed.

While such warnings are meant for your safety, if you find yourself receiving this Kaspersky warning often – especially on websites you trust, you may want to consider turning it off.

If you wish to disable this warning, open your Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky Total Security and click on the Settings icon.

In the left pane, you will see Additional settings. Click on it and then select Network to open the Network Settings.

Now under Encrypted connections scanning, check the Do not scan encrypted connections box.

That’s it! You will now no longer see these warning boxes.
