FRITZ! Box 7490 service - knowledge database

If the internet browser displays a certificate warning instead of the FRITZ! Box user interface (see fig.):

When an encrypted HTTPS connection is established, the Internet browser checks the website's security certificate. Since the individual security certificate of the FRITZ! Box is unknown to third-party providers who issue such certificates, the Internet browser marks the HTTPS connection to the FRITZ! Box as unsecure.

Fig .: Chrome message "This is not a secure connection"


For access to the FRITZ! Box via the internet, we recommend access via MyFRITZ !. By using a certificate from letsencrypt.org, the internet browser does not display a certificate warning.

When accessing from the home network or using other dynamic DNS providers, confirm the certificate warning of the Internet browser. This does not result in a security risk.
