Security Warnings & Signed Java Applets
When you use fileai.com to transfer files, chances are you’re going to see a security warning that looks something like this if you’re running Windows:
Or like this if you’re on a Mac:
The reason you see this is because fileai.com uses a small application called an “applet” to transfer files to and from your computer. Applets aren’t installed, but instead run from within a web page similar to a YouTube video.
It is the applet that makes transferring files between computers possible without uploading them to a server or installing something on your computer.
For security reasons, web sites cannot transfer files on your computer without first being given permission, and that is what you are doing when you click “Run” or “Trust”.
If you don’t want to have to click “Run” or “Trust” every time you use fileai.com, simply check the “Always trust content from this publisher” box and click “Run” in Windows:
Or click the “Show Certificate” button and check the “Always trust fileai.com” box and click “Trust” in OS X:
