Certain domains or the entire HTTPS protocol are blocked at once when an SSL certificate is connected. Why the site stops functioning, how to fix it quickly?


In order to fix SSL errors, check if the system date and time settings have gone wrong. Check your computer for viruses, a malicious script may be triggered. Antivirus can block traffic over HTTPS.


Fix the date and time in your system:
Date and time mismatch is one of the most common causes of SSL connection error in Chrome. Every time you try to open a site, it starts tracking the location, date and time of your system.
And if there is a discrepancy in the information, the web site blocks certification from your system. So, you just need to check and fix the date and time of your system and restart the Google Chrome browser.

Cleaning the system from viruses:
Usually viruses are involved here, which cause additional banner ads in your browser. Now the problem is widespread and gaining momentum, so you should pay attention to it. The error is caused due to an attempt by a virus to scan the web site and add additional advertising.

The problem is solved easily with the help of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware application, which will automatically fix everything. There are also more complex situations, the solution of which is described here.

It should also be noted that the SSL error is not a verdict on the web site at all, you can successfully log in to it, only at your own risk.
If you fully trust the resource, you can do that by clicking on the "Advanced" link after the error text and selecting "Go to the site anyway". In order to avoid such a problem on the current web site in the future, you can add the certificate to the trusted list in the browser.

In addition to everything else, the cause of the error may simply be an incorrect link to web site, some resources use a secure connection for registered users and the usual one for guests. In that case, you should simply replace https with http in the site address.
