How to Ignore Insecure Request Warnings in Python Requests

If you are working with Python requests library to send HTTP requests and you are receiving SSL certificate errors, then you might want to ignore those warnings to proceed with your task. One common warning is the InsecureRequestWarning which indicates that the HTTPS request is using an insecure protocol.

Method 1: Disabling Warnings Globally

You can disable all warnings globally using the warnings module in Python.

import warnings

Method 2: Disabling Warnings for a Specific Request

If you want to disable the warning for just a specific request, then you can use the verify parameter and set it to False.

import requests
requests.packages.urllib3.disable_warnings() # optional, to disable urllib3 warnings

response = requests.get("", verify=False)

Method 3: Configuring Requests Session

You can also configure a session object and set its verify attribute to False. This will apply to all requests made with that session.

import requests

session = requests.Session()
session.verify = False
response = session.get("")

Note: Disabling SSL verification can be dangerous as it opens up the possibility of man-in-the-middle attacks. Use these methods with caution and only when necessary.
