I'm using IE 11 on Windows 8.1 through private browsing. I think the screenshot is self-explanatory but if it not let me know and I'll provide more information to the best of my ability.

Did you try to surf DDG through different browsers? Let me know if you have same issue on other platforms.

I only utilized one browser and that is IE 11 (though I am looking for a second one). That pop-up warning doesn't appear all the time when viewing videos on DDG, just sporadically on few occasions.

Hi there,

Is this still happening to you? I just tried that same search and some others with IE 11 but couldn't get that to happen.

If it appears again please let me know. Is it complaining about DuckDuckGo's certificate?

It happened again last night while I was viewing the 'Huron Carol Tenor' on DDG videos. I managed to take a screenshot of it, though it doesn't seem to offer anything of value. If you need certain info from the ‘details’ tab let me know and I'll get it next time.

As for 'is it complaining about DDG's certificate', it doesn’t seem to be despite these sporadic pop-ups.


P.S - this forums really needs an edit button.
