    I went to try to use the new DECRYPT HTTPS TRAFFIC option.

    The Fiddler warning box said "This is generally safe."

    But the Windows Security Warning box said the certificate is from "DO_NOT_TRUST_FiddlerRoot"

    What is the deal?  I find it hard to trust a certificate named "DO_NOT_TRUST."

    It is generally safe to trust this certificate when using Fiddler. It is named this way so that a system admin can easily see this is not a regular root certificate. It is also supposed to alarm the end user in case Fiddler is not running and some websites use certificates generated with this root certificate.
