SOLVED! Internet Explorer - This page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Do you want to continue?

For many days, this error message annoys me and a number of others. Once the page goes for a HTTPS access, this happens:

  • "Internet Explorer - This page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Do you want to continue?"
In my case, this helps: Disabling the “Compatibility View” of the IE browser. Please follow these steps:


  1. In Internet Explorer, press Alt key
  2. Choose “Tools”, “Compatibility View Settings”
  3. Uncheck the two boxes “Display intranet sites in Compatibility View” and “Display all websites in Compatibility View”
  4. Press “Close” button, F5 to refresh your page or restart IE.
Hope this helps in your case.

  1. You can also choose Tools -> Internet options -> Security, then click 'Custom level...'. Scroll down to Miscellaneous, then disable "Access data sources across domains".

    This message seems to be caused by XSS, so be aware that if the website is using AJAX or a CDN (content delivery network), it won't work properly.
