I don't have an iPhone I only have an iMac and no other Apple products. I also have never had a Facebook account.
I have stopped getting the prompt . Facebook is known for collecting people's personal information . I hope they did not figure out how to piggy back on Apple products to collect our information even though many of us do not have Facebook accounts

OK, so now I AM getting paranoid lol! A strange sound just came from my computer. 2 dings, a low tone followed by a higher tone. I checked the cnn.com web page I still had open from testing this, but there were no ad videos or any pop ups active. REALLY weird. Ive been using Macs for 20 years and never had an unexplained sound like this come up before.
Sure it may be unrelated, but In not feeling very secure about this Facebook certificate. I never trusted that site.

Since so many of us had the same issue we know it is not our computers or equipment.
When the forum lit up with so many identical messages I'll bet it got someone's attention at Apple Support.
I don't think Apple would take kindly to anyone including Facebook collecting information on their customers. So I feel safe for now .
I had something strange happen earlier this evening. Suddenly I had something "downloading" that said from "Unknown" I had not initiated any download so I immediately hit cancel download and then dragged it to the trash . I have never had a download start when I did not initiate it . A while after this incident the Safari can verify certification started Hum-m-m

What makes you feel safe for now? Maybe the certificate is back up and running under the hood the way it was before this error exposed them. I dont know enough to say something is foul, but I am very suspicious and would really like some answers.

Go to app store abd pick "SSL Detective". Run and insert ie: "static.ak.facebook.com" or "smtp.gmail.com" or "www.google.com" and send by email. Open email and install the certificates.
works for me.

I missed the first episode of "can't ID server identity". However, last night, 8/27/13 I experienced a similar situation: can't ID server identity was followed by a strange address which included an arrangement of letters that included (but not consecutively) "vznwi." I was using iPhone V running of of Wi Fi from Time Warner Cable. Turns out cable was down and iPhone was trying to run off My Verizon data plan. But, apparently my iPhone wasn't ammeneable to what looked like a Verizon address. I am a novice at this and would love to learn more. Was visiting parents when this occurred so could not verify on my MBP, iPad IV etc.
P S Everything works as it should today

i have this "cannot verify identity" problem now. for almost every page that i open. whether i press Cancel or Continue - nothing helps. i cant use internet anymore. Is there something else than Safari? this is too bad!
