This sometimes comes up when im using my mobile data but hasnt came up on my wifi (that i can remeber) so dunno , is it the website or something with my data. I dont get how going on TheMix’s link could be impersonating. Is it safe to use the site -  when this comes up?  So sorry to ask but like kinda confused & concerning as i still use the site when it says this so dont get where or what info goes. Do you know if Should not use it when it says this?

 Does anyone else get this for any site? 

 Sorry. I dont really use many other sites (expect for quick search) to know if its my phone or the link or something. 

Thanks:)

    Hey Shaunie,

    I get it sometimes when I'm using data,  bus Wi-Fi or or when my Wi-Fi has died. 
    I'm not sure of exactly why it occurs and hopefully Mike Ed or Aife can help just wanted to let you know I experience it too :)

  • Be aware that whenever one is in a public area such as a cafe using WiFi, hackers and scammers could be operating nearby. All the more reason to subscribe to a VPN! 
    I'm driven by self doubt.

    Ah yeah thanks floxy. Think might be that. 

    But keeps happening today cause am out and not using wifi and am using my data. So i tried other sites and they was fine then went back to this this site and was still saying impersonating.

    An update on this: we reckon it might be to do with using public networks (e.g. café and bus WiFi) and mobile data. We won't go into technicalities because the stuff to do with certificates gets very techy, but the boards are safe to use and there's no reason to worry. :) You can go ahead and visit the site.
