"Your connection is not private"

If you see the error "Your connection is not private" in Chrome, try the following tips:

On a computer

  • If you are using Windows XP 32-bit, make sure you have Service Pack 3 installed.
  • If you are using Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP 64-bit, make sure you have Service Pack 2 installed and also the SHA-256 support hotfix.
  • If you’re trying to log in to a WiFi portal, try visiting a website in HTTP to get to the Wi-Fi login page.

On a computer or mobile device

  • Try opening the page in Incognito mode. If it works there, it means one of your extensions is causing the security problem and you should remove it. Learn how to turn off an extension
  • If you have any anti-virus software that provides "HTTPS protection" or “HTTPS scanning,” it might be interfering with the browser's ability to provide security and should be disabled.
