How can you set Safari to warn you each time you access an insecure wireless connection?
RomanZ 2 years ago
The first time you access an insecure internet connection, Safari warns you, but I can't figure out how to set up a warning for subsequent time. I travel to Chicago pretty often, and there are a networks that I use with my iPad (sometimes at Starbucks, I hang my head and admit). I have had a couple of times when "Free Wi-Fi" popped up at places I know good and darn well there is no free Wi-Fi, so my assumption is that someone is trolling for a connection to hijack. A little later, I came back to the same location, and there was no warning even though the same "Free Wi-Fi" was still there. I'm usually pretty careful, but I worry about not noticing sometime when I've got something on my mind. I can't figure out how to change settings so that the same unsecured connection generates a security certificate warning on subsequent occasions. Is there a way to change this?
