Google Chrome has security measures in place to help protect you as you browse the web. Many websites securely transmit information using SSL to guarantee their website identity and prevent anyone else from tampering with what you see or the information you pass along. Google Chrome alerts you when errors prevent websites from establishing a fully secure connection. It analyzes three aspects to determine the security of a webpage:

Identity: When you connect to a secure website, the server hosting that website presents Google Chrome and other browsers with a certificate to verify its identity. This certificate contains information like the address of the website, which is confirmed by a third party organization. By verifying that the address in the certificate matches the address of the website, ensuring that the certificate is not yet expired, and checking that its third-party verifier is trusted, Google Chrome confirms that you're securely communicating with the website named on the certificate and not someone pretending to be that website.
Connection: An encrypted connection is required in order to prevent others from seeing your data while it's transmitting.
Visit history: If the website layout looks familiar, but records indicate that you've never visited it before, this may be a sign that the website is a forgery of another site that you may trust. Learn more about phishing.
Website security status

Several features of the address bar help keep you aware of the security status for a website. If Google Chrome detects that the website you're trying to access securely transmits data in encrypted form using SSL, you see the following:

The background color of the address bar changes to gold.
The 'https' in the URL appears in green for websites with secure connections established.
A lock icon  appears at the end of the address bar. Click the icon to get specific details about the website's identity, connection, and your visit history.
The domain of the website you're on is called out in black text, while the rest of the URL appears in gray text. Phishing websites often trick users by using very similar domains to the website they're forging.

Warning signs

The following signs warn you of possible web dangers:

The warning 'This is probably not the site you are looking for!' appears before Google Chrome loads the webpage if the address in the certificate doesn't match the website's actual address. Learn more.
The warning 'The site's security certificate is not trusted!' appears if a website's certificate isn't from a trusted third-party organization. Learn more.
The warnings 'The site's security certificate has expired!' or 'The server's security certificate is not yet valid!' appear if Google Chrome lacks up-to-date information about a website's identity.
The warning 'The server's security certificate is revoked!' appears if the certificate's third-party verifier marks the certificate as invalid. Learn more.
If mixed content is detected on a secure webpage, an alert icon  appears at the end of the address bar. You can click the icon to open the 'Security information' dialog box and see more information. To obtain details about the certificate presented by the website, click the Certificate information button. Learn more about controlling the display of mixed content.
Phishing and malware detection is enabled by default.
If Google Chrome detects that you're accessing a website that appears to be operating under false pretenses, you'll see the warning 'Phishing Detected!'
If it detects that your web destination contains deceptive software that attempts to steal your personal information or use your computer to do things that you do not intend, you'll see the alert 'Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer!'

Question was: "How to add site to list of trusted sites?", not "How Chrome treat non-trusted sites?". So, there is no answer!
I need to use some third party just to remotely connect to my work PC from home and I do not like to see warning message at each connection.
The same connection through IE and Firefox lets me to add this site as trusted and works properly, but I prefer Chrome and would like to use Chrome.
So, question still open: "How to add trusted site in Chrome ?"
    Thank you,

I guess the brick-wall answer is that you don't. I like how lightweight Chrome is, but a frigging browser denying me access to sites because it thinks it knows better? What is this - China??. I tried to access something on a Ciscolearning website and it told me it won't let me basically.

Not sure if this is googles doing though, i'm running the Chromium browser in Ubuntu and same issue. I think Firefox is the way forward here. Literally.

You must add it via Windows certificate install as I believe Chrome uses that.

If you have a copy of the certificate go to Internet Options, Content, Certificates and Import, otherwise:

Visit the page in IE, when you are prompted with the Security Alert, click View Certificate, Install Certificate and follow the wizard.

After that IE and Chrome will not bother you about that certificate.

Worked fine for me, of course, this will not help Ubuntu users.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? bamzero 1/20/10 4:54 PM
However, since you mention you have already added the site as trusted in IE, I don't know if this will help you. It should already be trusted in Chrome in this case.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? bitmanic 3/23/10 4:30 PM
MAC SOLUTION: The best way that I've found for manually trusting specific site certificates is to use Safari.  See, when you manually trust a certificate in Safari, it requires you to enter your OS X account password.  Safari does this because it stores the certificate details in Keychain Access, a system application that manages all vital data you store on your computer.

This is significant because Chrome also communicates with Keychain Access.  Once the program has a record of the certificate being trusted by Safari, Chrome will also trust the certificate.  You may have to restart the Chrome browser after activating the certificate in Safari to get this to work correctly.

Happy browsing!

Windows solution:

For the site in question, click the orange exclamation mark on the right of the address bar. Then go Certificate Information > Details tab > Copy to File... Save the certificate (as a DER encoded binary). Next go to the Wrench > Options >  Under the Hood tab > Manage certificates. In the Trusted Root Certification Authorities, Import the newly created file and add to the Trusted Root Certification Authorities list.

While Bitmanic and CoreyPlover's answers resolved the problem, I shouldn't have to use another browser to fixed a short-coming in Chrome.  Period.

All other browsers all this and therefore Chrome should as well.  Besides, you can use the Apple stance on it and just say that "all other browsers do this and that's what our users expect".

My Gmail and banking site could not open securely. The security certificate stated that mixed content was detected. A yellow triangle was on the far right of the omni box. By disabling the extension WOT, I was able to get full security back for Gmail, ie. a gold lock at the far right of the omni box. My banking site was returned to full security when I disabled the extension Flash Blocker.The other flash blockers I tried also prevented full security. I uninstalled both extensions.Both sites have remained secure,ie. gold lock.

FWIW: I also notice that under options, under the hood, content settings you can set certain domains as safe for pop-ups.

CoreyPlover's solution worked perfectly for me in XP and Chrome5, without requiring me to load/run IE as Hummdis suggests.  It uses Chrome (and only Chrome) to save and then import a root certificate to be trusted.  Very simple, and CoreyPlover's solution is all but a paint-by-numbers.  Very cool.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? 76Pinto 6/29/10 4:36 AM
I love Chrome but I find it absurd that it doesn't provide certificate management functionality. You can't even save a certificate file. It's the only browser I know of whose instructions for performing a particular task begin with, "Open IE..." or "Open Safari...." Bizarre.

(Btw, I'm on OS X with Chrome 6.0.437.3 dev.)
Re: how do i add trusted sites? wallewek 12/4/10 11:41 AM
Waitaminute!   The original question said absolutely NOTHING about SSL and certificates!

Internet Explorer has the ability to add IP addresses and domains as trusted sites.   It has nothing to do with SSL certs.  I see no way to do that in Chrome.  I have a site that wants to download executables dynamically -- it's my own site.   How do I tell Chrome that site is OK?

Re: how do i add trusted sites? Michael_Jan 12/19/10 4:48 AM
I wish to add a particular IP number or URL to Chrome's trusted sites. Can't figure out how to do it. This is one of my most popular sites, so failing that, Chrome would just be a pain for me to use. Is there no solution to this yet?
Re: how do i add trusted sites? vasa1 12/19/10 4:52 AM
Chrome doesn't do "trusted sites" AFAIK. One can try other browsers such as IE.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? Vithoba 1/10/11 8:42 PM
Weird that there is no straight forward option in chrome to add trusted site/certificate.
That why firefosx seems to be still better than most browsers. Expect chrome to be better being a google product
Re: how do i add trusted sites? macdoc 3/2/11 12:26 PM
One easy Mac solution (Chrome 9.0.597.107) - No second browser required: Click on the lock symbol in the address bar. A pop-up will appear with an option to view the certificate. Once the certificate is showing, select and drag the certificate image/icon to the desktop. Open Keychain Access. Select Root Keychain and Certificate Category. Select File -> Import Items. Navigate to the Desktop folder. Find the certificate (chances are it will be named the same as the web site you copied it from) and select it. Select Open. You are done. You should no longer have issues with that web site.

Chrome won't do it live you need to relaunch the app once you added in Safari "Always trust" this thing is really annoying for private network and private services for an app... why should I pay a third party company to declare my certificate? my should I pay a third company to get a DNS and emails ... Internet became a mob, when you know what it costs (infrastructure and simplicity) ... to declare and propagate DNS you can ask this question? we create a world of "legal" thieves and we covered that under the name business what a fat lie!, Chrome is cool except you cannot have a blank tab... and you cannot trust your own certificate except by using another web browser to do so, or ssh your server and download locally the cert, just ridiculous and so user friendly... hey dear user here the way and the procedure: you live in Tokyo, then you have to go to Paris, the travel to Bamako visit a museum and back to Tokyo, you have the cert... as I often nerds are good to find solutions but never trust them regarding the common sense.

By the Way, it's an implemented feature into the WebKit, we did it for you just use it, it's so simple.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? th1rtyf0ur 7/13/11 4:03 AM
Since many of the Mac instructions were missing the full details on the Keychain section, here's a complete run-through of everything you need to do (no other browser needed).


- click on the padlock icon in the address bar
- click on "Certificate Information"
- there should be a blue-framed "Certificate" icon w/ a gold seal. Drag this to your desktop (or anywhere else)
- double-click on the certificate file (should be named hostname + '.cer'), and it will open in Keychain
- go to your login chain & category "Certificates". the certificate should be in there w/ a white-on-red X icon
- double click the certificate to open the details
- click the triangle next to "Trust" to expand the tree
- next to "When using this certificate:" select "Always Trust" from the pulldown. The red 'x' should turn into a blue '+'
- close the details window & enter your password (if necessary) to make the change to your keychain
- restart Chrome & you should no longer get a non-trusted site error!

help me please..SSL facebook error  ( Sorry, we are experiencing temporary technical problem, please check back later. )..please.
Re: how do i add trusted sites? karant 7/27/11 5:49 PM
Basically Chrome is using the Windows Internet Options. Therefore you can go straight away to Control Panel in Windows - > Internet Option

Internet Options -> Privacy -> Sites - > Allow  or Deny the sites.
