To use this guide make sure that you’re running native version of Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 10. Microsoft Edge version of Microsoft Internet Explorer doesn’t allow user to view certificate details.

  1. Launch native Internet Explorer for Windows 10. In order to launch native Internet Explorer on Windows 10, you need to type “internet explorer” in Windows search bar. You should see “Internet Explorer” item appear in a list above. Click on it.

  2. Enter website address into browser address bar.

  3. Find a lock icon on the right side of the Internet Explorer taskbar. If you don’t see lock icon, it means that website is not using SSL encryption and it is not safe to use it for anything other than reading content from it.
  4. Click on lock icon. You will see a popup window with basic certificate information.
  5. To get detailed information about the certificate click on “View certificates” link at the bottom of this popup window

Typically it will be Verisign, Symantec, GeoTrust, Comodo or Thawte

If the website is not SSL encrypted (you cannot see its SSL certificate) or some information in SSL certificate doesn’t seem right, avoid using this website until you can verify its identity. Also make sure that website name was spelled correctly.
