You may have noticed that each time you enter your password in the login field of a website that is not an HTTPS site, using Firefox browser, you will see a message – This connection is not secure, connections entered here could be compromised. You will notice that in such cases, Firefox also displays a grey lock icon with a red address bar. This means that the page displayed does not have a secure connection.
Sites that do not require you to log in or do not provide information may have an unencrypted HTTP connection. But websites that require sensitive data such as bank details, password, credit card details, etc. should have a secure HTTPS connection, otherwise hackers can steal the data when it is transmitted over the Internet.
When you see this warning, you have three options:
- Enter the password
- Check that the web page is secure by typing https in the address bar instead of HTTP.
- Disable the dangerous warning message if it disturbs you.
Mozilla has introduced this unsecured password login prompt in Firefox 52 – and it is an excellent security feature that warns you against unsecured connections. But there are many people who are looking for a way to disable or disable this unsecured connection prompt. If you are one of them, then this message should be able to help you.
Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter to open the configuration page.
When you have found it, double-click it to change it from True to False.
Restart Firefox and you will see that the warnings have been disabled.
Rivera adds in comments : If it doesn’t work for you, disable security.insecure_field_warning.contexttual.enabled and check if it works.
We strongly recommend that you keep this warning as it is a good safety measure. We also recommend that you use good free VPN software if you want to ensure that all data you send over the Internet is securely encrypted.
See this message if Firefox warns you that your connection is not secure.
