Why the browser cannot redirect to the Hotspot Portal page from an HTTPS website?

Published On: Apr 02, 2019 

When using the hotspot web portal feature, while the router redirect hotspot clients to the portal page form an HTTPS websites, the clients always get the warning message as below:

Please don’t be worried, that is a general warning message when a device tries to build an HTTPS connection to a website without the trusted certificate. The browser considers the connection unsafe therefore block it and show the warning message.

 If you enable the hotspot web portal feature with using the HTTPS redirection of Vigor Router, which does not have a trusted certificate, the browser will pop out with this kind of warning message when being redirected to the hotspot page. hotspot users will need to click the ADVANCED link and Proceed to www.draytek.com (unsafe) to continue to the portal page.
