Security Certificate error LeTravino 12/31/11 12:04 PM
Google Chrome version (type about:version into the address bar):Operating System:Error Message:Extensions installed:
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):

Okay, so I'm in an absolute state of confusion right now.

So, I'm just online, doing my thing, and I decide to check twitter. I have Speed Dial installed, so I just open a tab and click the icon. I get this message saying that that the site's certificate isn't trust. I go to click on 'Proceed Anyway', as I've had to do before, but the button isn't there anymore - it just shows [back'].

Odd, right? So, I think maybe SpeedDial had the issue, so I closed the tab, opened a new one, and manually typed in twitter.com. Same screen.

So, after a little bit of forum browsing, I find out that I can turn off Google Chrome's ability to check the certificates, and that it's worked 100% of the time. I understand it's not recommended because of the number of malicious attacks that happen without the certificate checking, but, I'm getting real sick of seeing this message pop up every couple of days or so. So, I reluctantly turn it off, and restart Google Chrome.

The error still pops up. So much for 100% effectiveness.

I restart my computer. Still nothing.

More forum browsing, and I find out that I can find the certificate and install it. I go to look at said information, and it tells me that the certificate is good to go, meaning the site should be available to me, yet it isn't. I've even compiled proof of this in the form of an extensive screen cap.

So, the certificate is good to go, and Chrome is set to NOT check certificates anyways, yet for some reason, I still can't access Twitter, of all sites, and I can't bypass the security error screen anyways, because the 'Proceed Anyways' button isn't even there.

I'm at a total loss of what to do, and it only does this to Twitter. I've also tried manually setting the date and time, and re-configuring it to the internet's time, with no effect. I even asked other Chrome-using friends of mine to see if it works, and it works fine for them.

Any ideas, techs of the world?

Here's the screen cap I mentioned earlier. It's the best thing I've got to show the situation with.

.. and sorry for the typos. I was in a bit of a rush, asking this before work and all.

Re: Security Certificate error airjordan11321 1/2/12 5:16 PM
I have the exact same problem. it just started like 4 days ago for me.  no clue whats going on.
Re: Security Certificate error genuval 1/4/12 7:30 PM
The same thing happened to me a few days ago. I dunno if this would work for you but I cleared my browsing history and after that I can access Twitter again.
Re: Security Certificate error rick_b 1/10/12 6:49 AM
I can't access twitter.com on Chrome either.  17.0.963.26 version.
Re: Security Certificate error Matt Stratton 1/11/12 7:14 PM
Started happening for me around the first of the year as well. Cleared out all Chrome temporary files to no avail.
Re: Security Certificate error WayneyP 1/24/12 6:43 AM
I've tried other fixes such as using FF to log on to Twitter and going to my profile and removing the check on Always Use HTTPS. Under the option it says "Use a secure connection where possible to encrypt your account information."  I have unchecked that and tried to get into Twitter on Chrome and it did not work.

Re: Security Certificate error Y2Jesse 1/27/12 11:50 AM
I have been have the same issue too. What I now do is click the IE (Internet Explorer) App button before going to Twitter. Then it works fine, but I would really like not to have to do that. It is annoying.
Re: Security Certificate error Huntress 2/5/12 8:01 AM
I can no longer log into twitter using chrome either.  I get the following message with no 'proceed' option--only the 'back' option.:

The site's security certificate is not trusted!

You attempted to reach twitter.com, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications.

You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain.

I tried the method of using another browser (Mozilla FF) to log in and changing my account settings to not use https, but that still doesn't help.  I still cannot log in using chrome.
Re: Security Certificate error N_Greenheart 2/11/12 4:32 AM
Yes, how annoying! In some days whenever I have something else opened up, like I have Facebook then I'll open a new tab to open Twitter, it would allow me. But most of the time, there's just that security error so I have no other choice but to use Firefox because it works just fine, but it's slow sometimes. Just moments ago I tried emptying my caches on chrome and I tried opening Twitter again and it gave me the 'proceed anyway' option instead of just the 'back' option, but I don't know if this would last for long :/
Re: Security Certificate error alexa137 2/12/12 6:28 AM
so did anyone figure this out yet/ ive been getting the same thing for weeks now
icannot load twitter for nothing!!! ugh!
Re: Security Certificate error WayneyP 2/13/12 9:11 AM
MY solution was to go back to using Firefox. For EVERYTHING.
Re: Security Certificate error alexa137 2/16/12 11:46 AM
i cant load any new programs on my computer and IE is way too slow! , i dont ahve the patience!
chrome needs to fix this
can someone post the step by step process to by pass the security error? i only get the "back" choice
need the proceed option!
Re: Security Certificate error Craig Long 2/16/12 11:33 PM
Check your computer Date and Time.
Re: Security Certificate error alexa137 2/19/12 2:23 PM
date and time is right
what else?!
someone please figure this out
Re: Security Certificate error Lockolegs 2/20/12 1:57 PM
I have had the same problem: The site's security certificate is not trusted! My word it's frustrating, it seems to manifest itself as and when it likes. I have been unable to access Twitter for the last 3 days; cleared the cache, checked the time and it is just the same. Help!

I do not want to go back to Firefox or IE.
Re: Security Certificate error Khariz Fahr 2/25/12 3:16 AM

Re: Security Certificate error Archit_13 3/4/12 10:54 PM

Re: Security Certificate error chanonx 3/5/12 7:33 PM
This methods might solved problem on Facebook, but here's a fixes for twitter(Invalid Server Certificate Page"  I think method in someway re-route/Validate Server Certificate.
I just happened to do a complete format and re-install Windows XP on 4 machines, and this problem ONLY occurs on AMD machine, 3 machines running Intel CPU didn't have this problem. >>> just an interesting thought.
Chrome installed: "Dev channel for Windows" http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

1) Go to extensions https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions
2) Search for "twitter" or "facebook" , I install "twitter notifier" >>> nice app, but I've since uninstalled it.
3) "add to chrome" button.. click it!
4) grant permission to app >>>> later you can removed permission in settings(twitter)
5) the idea is to find a twitter app or a facebook app >>>> and grant permission to it.
5) access to twitter.com page should work normally.
Re: Security Certificate error Aghoury 3/17/12 9:11 PM
This stupid error encountered me around start of 2012, I searched and mailed google for nothing. They MUST solve it, or we will LEAVE Chrome. Google Team are very reluctant to solve this, though thousands of complaints reached them
Re: Security Certificate error Aghoury 3/17/12 9:44 PM
How can I do this?
Re: Security Certificate error Aghoury 3/17/12 10:38 PM
I tried this and it worked:
==
You can avoid the message for trusted sites by installing the certificate.

This can be done by clicking on the warning icon in the address bar, then click

"Certificate Information" -> Details Tab -> Copy to file

Save the certificate, then double click on the certificate file. On the certificate window that opens, click install certificate, then walk through the install.

The next time you go to the site it should work fine without errors.

Re: Security Certificate error JackyH 3/26/12 3:23 PM
Hi Everyone,

Are you still experiencing issues with loading Twitter? If so, can you help us troubleshoot by answering the following questions?

1. What version of Chrome are you using? Wrench Menu>About Chrome
2. What OS are you using? 
3. What is the error message you are seeing? If you could attach a screenshot that would be really helpful. 

Thanks!
Jacky

Hi JackyH:

yes. "The site's security certificate is not trusted!
You attempted to reach twitter.com, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications. You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.

Help me understand"

I'm going abroad for a week - do hope this is sorted when I get back - I can't login to any secure site since this morning (Google, Facebook, Amazon, work email, plus more obscure ones)! Only the second time I've used IE on this PC!

I'm sure that the upgrade broke it - it worked first thing, then I shut down Chrome, remembered something, fired it up again and found I couldn't login!
Security Certificate error miken1157 4/6/12 1:24 PM
jacky,
I made a bunch of screen shots of the certs when I get the errors.
The Cert Chrome is complaining about is using an MD5 hash, and is not the same cert that is in my Cert stor (Trusted Root) it uses SHA1 and has a different Serial Number, cannot figure where Chrome is picking up the MD5 cert, it does not exist on my machine anywhere.  I cannot attached the images (we use WebSense and it blocks it) I'm assuming you can get to my gmail so i can send the images that way if you would like.

Re: Security Certificate error moonbird 4/7/12 7:38 AM
I fixed the Twitter problem by unchecking in settings "Check for server certificate revocation." But that only did it for Twitter. I've now found this same problem to be evident with Skype.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all answering all our troubleshooting steps; your answers have been really helpful in troubleshooting this issue. I am going to be merging this thread to another, larger thread that address the error message "Invalid security certificate" to centralize the conversation. In addition, if you would like to follow along on our progress on this issue, you can visit this entry in our public issue tracker. You can star the issue to be emailed updates.

If you are seeing the error message "The site's security certificate is signed using a weak signature algorithm" instead of "Invalid security certificate" then please go to this thread where we are troubleshooting the issue related to a weak signature algorithm. 

Thanks again everyone for helping us troubleshoot!
Jacky
