Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Literally, is the message "no internet secured" and no more than that?

If so, then where, and when / in response to what, does it appear?

I have to ask - error messages, esp. when they sound peculiar or unfamiliar, are exact info for telling what is wrong.
