    Which exact site are you trying to look at when you get the warning? We need the URL starting with http.

    WordPress.com does not have www in any of their URLs, either the site URLs or in the user’s blog URLs.

    Have you tried logging in at http://wordpress.com directly instead of including the www?

    Ok . So godaddy.com ssl certificate encryption might also be of wordpress itself? right .
    and why these message “”we can’t verify the identity of this website ” previously appears?is any thing ssl certificate issue for wordpress

    The original SSL certificates for wordpress.COM (so you can have secure login (https://) is I think provided through godaddy. There have been some instances in the past where there were some issues with settings related to the certificate or something and some people were getting that warning. It seems to mostly be an IE and Windows issue as I have never gotten that with Firefox, Safari, Chrome or Opera on my Mac.

    Have you got your account set up to “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages” at users > personal settings?

    can any one create any such mocking url’s or website under a specific ISP or geolocation? so that is why getting such messages?

    One suggestion is to take it off of https setting, log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies and the log back in NOT using the https. For wordpress, I find it far more of a pain than it is worth since it can slow the dashboard down considerably.

    I’ve again tried with Safari and with Firefox using https and have no issues.

    What browser and browser version are you using?
