Security Alert in IE

Hello,

We are testing an automatic redirect on our website from a http login page to it's https equivalent.

For some users, it works fine without a warning. For other users, they receive a "Security Alert" dialog box that reads "You are about to view pages over a secure connection. Any information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed by anyone else on the Web." Then it has a checkbox and "In the future, do not show this warning"

Are these users getting this warning because it is standard/default and they've never checked the box to stop showing the warning?

Or does it have to do with some IE or PC configuration?

Thanks,

Steve

This is the case, yes. IE's default setting is to warn about switches between http and https
