While browsing the web, sometimes a few websites show us error messages like ‘Your Connection is not private.’ It was not the website that shows you the error message. Your security tool or the web browser tells you about the potential security risks.

If you are using the Google Chrome web browser, you might know that the web browser also blocks downloading from malicious websites. The same thing goes for the Microsoft Edge browser as well.

The thing is that modern web browser blocks websites based on what it thinks to be unsafe. That doesn’t mean every website it blocks is unsafe to visit or download. If you think the website you are about to visit is safe but forcibly blocked by the web browser, you need to set up trusted sites in Windows.
