Security certificates are credentials that prove that the site you have reached is the site you wanted to reach. However, sometimes something goes wrong. We regularly see security certificate errors when logging into some databases and EndNote Web. If you see a "Security certificate error" message and you are confident that it's safe to do so, you can tell your browser that you want to continue on to the page. Each browser looks a little different, but you'll generally have to click a button that Accepts the security exception or Continues on to the page. Below is a link that shows what it looks like in the Firefox and Chrome browsers.
