Please contact your server administrator or server hosting provider and ask them to configure the server so that it supports FTP over TLS. It's a most trivial task for any decent server administrator.

You cannot "fix" this, it must be done by the server Administrator.


Important to know is, that technically, nothing has changed. The server you connect to has always been insecure (by not providing FTP over TLS). The only thing new is that FileZilla now makes you aware of this fact. If you are OK with this, simply click OK and continue. Again: The server is no more insecure than before, but now you know that it is.
