Hi all,

I have a website with an SSL certificate that works on all browser except Safari.  I get the attached dialog.  What doesn't make sense is it identifies the cert as Apple iPhone Device CA and the date are from last year.  Also, the cert works fine on my iPad2.

Please help.

Thanks,

Rick

On my MacBook Pro, that cert is identified as a GeoTrust cert in Safari and Firefox.  On my PC, it appears that since Apple has abandoned Safari for Windows, your cert is maybe too new for it and it isn't recognized.  There isn't anything you can do about it since Apple will not update Safari for Windows anymore.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

Yes.  If I have to support Windows Safari your way it will be a support nightmare.  The best way to do this is to tell people Safari on Windows is not supported.
