Configuring notifications of vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi networks

If Kaspersky Secure Connection is not installed on your computer, Kaspersky Internet Security displays a notification about the insecure transmission of your password over the Internet. You can allow or block password transmission in the notification window.

After you have installed Kaspersky Secure Connection, the settings for the display of notifications when connecting to Wi-Fi networks and transmitting an unencrypted password become inactive. You can configure the notification settings for Wi-Fi network connections in Kaspersky Secure Connection.

To configure notifications of vulnerabilities on Wi-Fi networks:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Settings 2019.png button in the lower part of the window.

    The Settings window opens.

  3. In the left part of the window, select the Protection section.
  4. In the right part of the Protection section, select the Firewall subsection.

    The window displays the settings of the Firewall component.

  5. Select the Notify of vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi networks if you want to receive notifications when you are connecting to vulnerable Wi-Fi networks. If you do not want to receive notifications, clear the check box. This check box can be accessed if Kaspersky Secure Connection is not installed on the computer.
  6. If the Notify of vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi networks check box is selected, you can edit the advanced settings for display of notifications:
    • Select the Block and warn about insecure transmission of passwords over the Internet check box to block all transmission of passwords in non-encrypted text format when you fill in the Password fields on the Internet.
    • Click the Reset hidden alerts link to roll back to the default values of settings for display of notifications about transfers of passwords in non-encrypted form. If you have previously blocked display of notifications about password transfer in non-encrypted form, display of these notifications will resume.
