SafeDNS Root Certificate For HTTPS Pages

About the certificate

Root certificate or SSL certificate is the main part of the website security. SSL certificate is required for the correct operation of sites with a secure (HTTPS) connection. If you have issues with displaying the SafeDNS block page (your internet browser shows a message "Unable to access the site"), you need to download a SafeDNS certificate and configure it to use in your browser.

Please note that the certificate should be installed on each end device where you want HTTPS pages to display correctly.
