Usually, whenever there is an issue with certificate on website, most of web browsers will notify the error and do not recommend you to go ahead. Same policy is followed by Microsoft Edge as well.
However in Microsoft Edge, by default, whenever you gets to website with certificate error, you can bypass the page/message by clicking Go on to the webpage (Not recommended) link.
To further safeguard users, Microsoft has introduced a new setting to Edge browser which prevents users to bypass the above shown certificate error page. The newer setting is available for Microsoft Edge on build 17723 or later.
Here’s how you can deploy this setting on your Windows 10 machines.
