Stop unprotected wi-fi warning pop-up


Recommended Posts

Every time I open the browser, I get a pop-up in the middle of the right edge, warning me that I'm connected to an unprotected wi-fi (I am at the moment), that is unsuitable for banking, etc.  The warning stays there unless I close it.  I don't need to see this every time I connect through this network.  I've been all through the Notifications, and Network Protection settings, and am unable to figure out a way to stop this.

Can anyone tell me how?

thanks,

Mike

Thanks.  I made that change earlier today, but am still getting the warning. Also doesn't matter if I use "untrusted network" or "use Windows Setting".

Refer to this posting: https://forum.eset.com/topic/27412-unprotected-wifi-notification/?do=findComment&comment=129258 . As far as I am aware of, there is no way to disable the alert. The alert won't appear if you connect to an AP that is password protected.

Thanks, I had seen that post, but skimming it, didn't see the issue of disabling the alert mentioned.  I'm on an open network at a resort facility, that requires login on a provider webpage in order to get internet access, but is otherwise open without authentication to the AP.  At least that's how my limited understanding places it.

Given the detailed configurability of ESET products, I'm surprised this one feature can't be disabled.  It's damn annoying, and superfluous past the 2nd or 3rd time.

It's an Eset security feature to warn users they are connected to a public Wi-Fi connection which is unsuitable for banking and other financial activities.

Sure, and once warned, it should be disable-able, for those who wish it so.  Just like any of a hundred other warnings and features the use has control over.
