Once you properly install the certificate chain on your web server, AffirmTrust will be trusted across more than 99% of browsers being used today. Most users will have the AffirmTrust root certificate installed. However, if you do not have it installed and you visit a site secured with an AffirmTrust certificate, the browser will ask you whether you want to trust certificates issued by AffirmTrust. If they answer yes, the AffirmTrust root certificates will be installed automatically. If they answer no, you can still opt to work within the secure session, but will be prompted again the next time you visit the site.


If you have any questions or concerns please contact the AffirmTrust support department for further assistance:
