Hubpage Certificate Problem

    When I get logged out because of 48 hours expiration on my Android tablet (Asus Transformer), I get a Certificate problem showing, which I have to say I accept. I don't get this problem on any other browser, so it's possible the Hubpages team aren't aware of this.

    Not sure why there's even a question on certifcates as it's http, not https. Nontheless, the error message always appears and might freak people out, so is probably worth fixing.

      The main reasons for such errors are:

      Your Computer’s date is set to a wrong value (may be possible)
      The Security Certificate has really expired (not possible)
      The web-site is not trustable (may be showing because of your browser).

      I would suggest to check your browser setting once.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The date is set automatically by synching, so I don't think it's that.
    As I say, I can't see why there is a certificate there even.
    So I suspect that it is specific to the OS/browser in the way that the Hubpages server sends that page. I only ever get this error on Hubpages, so it is either in the code of the page (don't think so) or in the method of serving that is getting caught by the browser.

    Hopefully the Hubpages engineers occasionally read these forums? It doesn't bother me because I know it's not important for what I'm doing, but if others see it a security certificate warning is likely to scare them off, or worse write some damaging stuff on a forum.

    As Android is pretty popular, I don't know if anyone else has seen this exhibited?
