    Just hit continue, likely the security certificate has expired...

    No no no bad idea!

    Certificate warnings can indicate a man in the middle attack. If you're on a public wifi and see one of these warnings, someone could be impersonating the server, trying to steal your login information!

    Never blindly hit continue when you see a certificate warning. The best thing is is to hit cancel and try again on a different network.

    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. Don't worry about it. It has to do with Verizon.

    This shows up on the phone when it's turned off and then back on. It happens while the phone is on our home wifi network.

    What did you hit for the options on the message?

    The chances of that being the case is about 1:100,000

    No, it's considerably greater than that.

    And if you take that attitude, we might as well not use SSL at all.

    I'm waiting for a number, such as the odds you think it might be...

    Haven't seen a .bmp in a long time. Is this the 90s again?

    Do you have the My Verizon app on your phone? If yes, delete it. Verizon admitted when the 5 (not 5s or 5c) came out, it did not work properly. I had the same issue and deleted app, and it never returned.
