    Exclamation Unnecessary ZoneAlarm Checkpoint warnings in IE8

    Hi.

    I've just completed a simple new web app - it's targeted at smartphones, but obviously usable by desktop browsers as well. When I check it in IE8 though I get a huge yellow warning banner, and also a pop-up message warning the user the my site is not to be trusted. If any less experienced web user were to encounter this, they would click away immediately and I don't blame them.

    Please can you explain what is going on.

    Thanks.

    Default Newly deployed website warning messages

    Hi.

    Seeing as original post was closed somewhat prematurely by a moderator, I have to start a new one.

    Original post:

    http://forums.zonealarm.com/showthread.php?t=75621

    It seems that any site less than 3 months old receives a large warning banner and pop-up in IE8. I'm a web developer, and if even if I saw one of these warnings, I wouldn't even bother reading why it was happening and just immediately leave the site.

    These warning messages could potentiallly damage the reputation of new websites and start-ups. Why do the notifications have to be so intrusive, and why are there two of them any way? Totally over the top, and totally unnecessary.

    I look forward to a reply from a ZoneAlarm representative explaining how this is acceptable application behaviour - that is, unless a forum moderator decides this really isn't an important issue and declares this issue "resolved".

    I am sorry but an answer was already been given to you with an explanation on how to proceed including a link to an official statement from ZA staff (moderator of this forum).

    If you assume all users are ignorant (= ignore messages) and don't read than I am afraid you should recommend users to read messages from software intalled on their systems rather than complaining here about it.

    The issue has been discussed several times and there is nothing we could add nor alternatives we could give. This is why the thread is closed.

    Hello,

    This is how the product was designed to work and how we want it to work.

    We have noted your dissatisfaction and your personal opinion on our warning.

    The product will not change and will stand as it is as far as the 3 month warning of new websites.

    Best regards,
    Forum Moderator
