Security warning

Hello. I've been using Sony readers for years primarily because of their support for public libraries. Now, after faithful service my PRS-T1 is telling me there are problems with the security certificates for both libraries that I use. The date on the Sony is accurate. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Joe

After reading your post, I tried to check out and download a library book (Brooklyn Public Library) on my T-1. I got the same security certificate warning, but pressed ignore and kept on going. I was able to get on the site, pick out a book, check it out, download it, open it, and return it with no problem. Don't know how long that will last, though.

If you get a security warning while browsing our website on an Android device, click 'Continue' to add the security certificate to your browser’s list of accepted sites.

Sometimes the Android Browser doesn’t have access to the most up-to-date security certificates, and thinks our website is a potentially dangerous page. We regularly update these certificates to ensure maximum security for you.

Please note, if you see this same warning appear for a website you are unfamiliar with or do not trust, you should tap 'Cancel' to avoid the site.

Thanks. It appears the certificate issue is in regard to epub. Adobe certificate, I suppose. Were you able to check out an epub book?

I didn't try to download a book because my library allows only 4 checkouts and I am currently at my limit.

OK, I finished and returned one of my books so I decided to see if I could check out another via the PRS-T1. When I went to sign in to the library I got the certificate warning and clicked "continue". After that, I did not see any more warnings and was able to download an epub normally.

Thanks for the response. Did you get the certificate warning. I updated the reader and while I still get the message, I am able to download ebooks,
