How to Overcome the Browser Connections error is not secure – Some time ago I had a confusing problem that happened to my browser, because I had never experienced this before. When I want to start blogging as usual I immediately open the browser and access verandalounge.co.uk and it works, but the google adsense ad appears an error saying that my connection is not secure or “Your Connections is not secure”, then I try browsing and opening Google but also can’t. After I investigated it turned out that I couldn’t access all websites that used https and raised a warning that read “Your connections is not secure“.
Next I tried to access it with another browser, I am used to using the Mozilla Firefox browser and want to try whether it can with other browsers, and when I try to use Google Chrome it turns out that it has the same problem.
And if you experience the same thing that I experienced, then in this article I will provide a solution to overcome the error in the browser that cannot access the site with https and a warning appears like “Your Connections is not secure”.
Overcoming Error Browser Cannot Access Https
In solving this problem I have two ways, you can try only one of them. But if you still can’t access https web, you can use the second method. Indeed, there are many ways that you can find on other blogs such as disabling firewalls and antivirus, but these methods don’t work in my browser.
1. Delete the Cert8.db file
This is for mozilla firefox users. To delete the cert8.db file, please click the “Open menu” icon or the icon with 3 lines on the top right. Once open, look for the question mark (?) Icon or the Open help menu at the bottom.
Click the link that says “Troubleshooting Information”. Then look for the “Show in Finder” or “Show Folder” button, the button is located in the column parallel to the “Profile Folder”.
After the folder opens, you will find lots of files and folders, you can look for a file named “Cert8.db”, please delete the file. But before deleting please close your browser first. Because if you don’t have your browser close the file cannot be deleted.
If it has been deleted, please reopen your firefox browser and also don’t forget to do “Clear Cache and History” and select “Everything”. And see if it works by accessing Google. If Google opens successfully, the error browser certificate problem has been resolved. Read: How To Clear Cache On All Popular Browsers
* Google Chrome: For Google Chrome you just have to clear cache and history by checking all options and also select everything then the problem is resolved.
2. Computer Time Settings
You can apply this second method if the above method doesn’t work, and this method is of course easier than the first method. When you experience an access failure, you can view information about what happened to your browser by clicking the “Advanced” menu.
After that, read the meaning of the problem, you will see instructions for changing the time on your computer as shown below.
In the picture above, it can be seen that I have to change the time on my computer on the date and month according to my underline. To do so, click the timer on your computer, if you are a Windows user then you can click the time at the bottom right. Once open you will see the date and time. Please change the time and date according to the information on your browser.
After you change the time and date, please click Apply and OK. Then re-open your browser and access google.com. Then you can now access and continue surfing the internet again. At some time later feel free to restore your time settings to normal.
Above are the two ways you can use when you cannot access the https web on your browser and “Your Connections is not secure” appears due to an expired certificate problem. Hopefully this article is useful for you. And good luck. 🙂
