Hi,
I have the paid for version of kaspersky secure connection, and turned off my VPN and when I turned it back on it said in the bottom right screen that my network is insecure. I run win

ows 8.1 and I am the only user. For further information, please see screenshot. I blacked out the name of my isp but it is a reputable well used safe one, why is kaspersky saying it is insecure? Sorry I put the same screenshot in twice by mistake.
All help appreciated thanks.

Hello @RightProgress,
Welcome!
Thank you for posting, the detailed information, defining the issue and the images👏🏽, also, two is better than none👌🏽☺️
I tried to reply last night, however, I kept falling over my words, it's sort of difficult to describe, bc, there's potentially, different reasons for the notification.
& my "fake" Win8 console kept crashing, making it impossible for me to create/document everything as a Win8 user would see this, so, I've created an image libray to step you thru some checks. Your Win 8 may have screens slightly different, but, I think you'll be able to follow the guide:
  • (1)
Windows, Settings, Control Panel, Network & Sharing Centre, View your active networks, click or double click (your device) "network", note, it may be defined as Public, Private or Work


  • (2)
(a) Check Select a location for "X" network (X = your nw name)
(b) Check the setting for [ ] Treat all future networks that I connect to as public and don't ask me again - is it ticked or unticked ?



  • (3)
Open Kaspersky Secure Connection/VPN, 3 horizontal bars, from the dropdown menu, select Settings


  • (4)
(a) KSC/VPN, Settings window, is Apply general rules on connection to WiFi networks ticked or unticked ?
(b) KSC/VPN, Settings window, select/open Settings


  • (5)
General rules for connecting to WiFi networks window
(a) Is Notify if secure connection to a WiFi network cannot be established checked or unchecked ?
(b) Which setting is selected for On connection to insecure WiFi networks ?


Open Manage known WiFi networks window
(c) Check your network name - how is Action on connection set ?


(d) Select/click.double click your network name > opens Settings for "X" (your network name)
(e) Action on connection to Wifi network "X" -what is selected ?
(f) Notify when enabled checked or unchecked ?


  • (6)
Return to Manage know WiFi networks screen
(a) Select your network name, select Edit


Opens Settings for X window
(b) Action on connection to WiFi network "X" what is set ?

Hello, hope you enjoyed your lunch, sorry this reply is late, The problem did not come up yesterday but it came up today.
I appreciate all the screenshots you gave me.
I am the only user and worried that my network is public.
When I tried to follow the steps Windows, Settings, Control Panel, Network & Sharing Centre,
This is the screenshhot I get. I blacked out the name and ref number of my ISP as I don't know if it I am supposed to keep it private.



I didnt quite understand what you meant by " View your active networks, click or double click (your device) "network", "so I clicked my private network I clicked the ISP name and reference number and got the following screenshot, and this is where I got stuck
I don't want to treat all future networks as public and I am really confused.
While I apprpeciate your help, your screen isnt like mine.
There are no check boxes as described in your descriptive post.
I rang Kaspersky and they told me to ring my ISP who cannot help, so I am stuck.
Thanks

Hello @RightProgress,
Thank you for posting back🙏🏽
Absolute bottom line, your network isn't "public", please don't panic or be stressed.
  • The "alert" is a poorly worded, misleading and confusing to many.
I'll go thru everything with your new information & try to create better guidelines.
I need 24 hours to do the work, it's not hard, just "hard to explain."
In the meantime, can you please go to: Kaspersky Secure Connection application, capture images of ALL screens, censor any defined network names and post back please OR .zip the images in a folder, upload the folder to cloud and pm the link to me please?
Thank you.

Note: The TS "response" is completely unacceptable and incompetent.

Hi Thanks for getting back to me. The error message in the bottom right hand screen is the only error message I was getting. I am not sure what you mean by "Kaspersky Secure Connection application, capture images of ALL screens, censor any defined network names and post back please" I don't know how to do this, the only other screen is this, server location blanked out for security reasons.

Pls see below. thanks for all your help. Theyve come onto the screen the wrong way up, ie, last in menu is the first picture if that makes sense.
EDIT, I think Ive put the 4 picitures in the right order now.

Hi Floood Im having problems with windows and am waiting for windows tech to contact me tomorrow, as I have to do a clean installl (nothing to do with kaspersky) but they told me not to do anything with my computer in the meanttime.
I really appreciate the effort you put in. I also rang kaspersky and told them the problem but they didn't seem to think it was a problem, I will get back to you after speaking to windows and kaspersky.
