As you known, most websites switched to use HTTPS, an encryption information with SSL certificates, to make users’ information and data to be more safe than ever. Instead of sending directly from the browser to the server, all the collected information will automatically encrypted and then transmitted. Those data could be personal information, email, username, password, or even financial details.
That is the primary reason why most websites have switched to HTTPS. Besides, Google also recommened to use HTTPS as it will help you improve the rank of websites in some aspects.
Last year, Google started to warn users about insecure connection when loading a website with bad or self-signed SSL certificates. That said, these types of SSL certificates will lead to an annoying errors, called Your connection is not private in Chrome. Basically, this error will not damage your computer, but will hurt your user experience. The result of getting this error is that you will not be able to access the requested website properly.
How To Get Rid Of Your Connection Is Not Private Error In Google Chrome
The simplest method to get rid of the “Your connection is not private” error in Google Chrome is to bypass it. There would be a link that you can click whenever you confront this type of error on your Google Chrome. All you need to do is to click on it and go to the website immediately.
However, this method will harm to user experience somehow as users might feel irritating. There’s nothing fun or good when you always need to click on a link to access your favorite websites every time you need.
Fortunately, this SSL warning error sometimes can be caused by invalid cookies as well. Before reinstall your Google Chrome browser, why don’t you try to clean up all cookies and cached files? There’s nothing to lose as anyway, you will try to reinstall the Chrome browser, right?
Besides, I would recommend focusing on the date and time of your computer. This could be the most common problem that lead to “Your connection is not private” error on your Chrome browser. Technically, before encrypting users’ information and data, SSL certificate needs to verify the date and time between your computer and the server in order to start the encrypt process. If the time doesn’t match, the process can’t be started and then, you see this annoying error message.
