Browsing secure websites

When you use a website that handles private or financial information, make sure the website is secure.

To check security:

If QtWeb has successfully verified a certificate, webpage URL is displayed on the light-green background. If SSL errors detected while certificate verification - QtWeb displays these errors and draws URL on the pink background, advising you that this certificate is not reliable (unverified by trusted authorities). Errors could happen in different scenarios, for example certificate is expired or certificate is self-generated (for development or testing purposes) but not certified, etc... SSL errors do not mean that connection is not secure! SSL connection via "https" is 100% secure, however the host you are trying to connect to has not been registered or verified with trusted organizations.

To view the contents of a website's certificate, click the lock icon.
