SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is an encryption-related Internet security protocol that can provide you enhanced security for the transmitted data. It reassures your privacy. When enabling the SSL filter, some of the HTTPS websites fail to load. You may also receive error messages like “Connection is Untrusted,” and you cannot access the websites with SSL certificates. Disabling the SSL filter can make you access these websites easily. Despite all these features, disabling the SSL filter will remove the security layer provided by ESET and your system will be exposed to security threats.
You can access the web pages that use SSL certificates without any interference. You can also temporarily disable the SSL Protocol Filtering to continue browsing without any interruption. It is only advised to disable the SSL protocol temporarily. Because disabling the SSL protocol permanently can expose your system to security risks.
