I recently filled out the Marriott survey referenced above, but at the end my computer told me (which it rarely does ) that the connection was untrusted. I allowed an exception, but I am wondering if Marriott's certificate has expired, which is what my computer later told me.
I realize my computer and I speaking would once have been unimaginable, but IPhones, which I don't own (because the coverage in my part of Maine by AT&T and Verizon is nearly nonexistent) apparently can talk to their owner/human companions.
Seriously, has anyone else gotten such a security message, or is it just my supervigilant firewall?
I got the same message at the completion of the survey and I have gotten it before. But, the last time I got it (telling me their certificate had expired) I went to an internal area and clicked on their certificate provider where we can check the validity of the certificate. It said the certificate was renewed through sometime down the road (quite a bit out in time I just can't remember how long) so I figured it was a glitch of some kind.
I encountered the same problem at the end of the survey. My guess would also be that the security certificate has expired or has not been updated. I use Firefox as my web browser and Norton as my security and trust their advice, so I dumped the survey. Heck, I even took the time to make a "heady" suggestion for improving the Insiders Community.
Yes, unless you have preloaded the pages and they pop up all the time there is a security problem with the ownership and the name and at some locations (using hotel wifi for example) I have to go through the steps you mention. Check the details and you'll see that the credentials are not trusted
I 'trusted it' both because of Marriott and because I revealed little personal info (what with me being a hermit etc), but I am uncomfortable with the idea. We should know that when we fill out a Marriott survey that it is indeed one. I admit to having stopped at several points and asked myself why is this question being asked. It was only when I felt it was a true Marriott survey based on questions that I decided to go on.
I am way wicked tired using Maine terminology, and up way wicked late, so pls excuse my typos,
