      Don't worry about the message you are seeing, it normally means something along the lines of you are moving from a secure https site to a standard http site. If you get it when moving off a site like MySky then its perfectly normal behaviour.

      I think the message usually has a tick box saying "dont show me this message again" just tick the box. Its just alerting you that you are moving from a sercure site like say a bank to a non sercure site.
