How to solve Unsecure SSL Connection Error from your PC

Many of us have hardly ever bothered about the date & time being displayed on the task bar. For us its only meant for the check on our routines. So, can any change in the value of date will affect the working of your PC.?? On a first note the question will appear a bit bootless to many of us.

But my say is the reality is way behind the actual perception. I was also unaware of this fact like many of you will be, until I got a call from my friend a few months back who told me that he is getting “Security Certificate” Warnings while opening web-sites. Mostly when he opens some secure sites like gmail,facebook,online banking etc.

There are three main reasons for such errors. In this post we will talk about the such errors, how they look on different browsers and how to fix them. 

The Security Certificate Warning looks like as shown below for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

So now coming to the problem the first thing that strikes my mind was his security certificates might have got expired so I made a check on that but shockingly his security certificates where up to date.

I was aware of only this fix about the problem so I tried playing with the settings with a hope that I might get something. But nothing worked,but sooner I noticed the date being displayed on taskbar, it was a year back, Well I was’nt having any clue that it might be the cause of his problem but habitually I corrected his date. But as I refreshed the page i was shocked to see that after changing date all sites started working normally. So accidentally I got the fix for this issue. This looks to be a very simple problem, but neglecting these smaller things like Dates & Time in your computer can make you annoy a lot.

Now lets see the reasons for such errors and what to do in such case.

1. Your Computer’s date is set to a wrong value.
2. The Security Certificate has really expired.
3. The web-site is not trustable.

Most common reason for such security certificate error is that the certificates are valid for a certain period of time, and if your computer’s date is set to other than the current date or correct date, there are high chances that you will get this warning. So the first thing to check when you receive such error is to checkyour computer’s date and time settings.

Now when you have set the date settings, you will most probably not see the this error again. But if you see the Security Certificate error, then either the certificate of the website has really expired as it had to be renewed from time to time, or the site is not trustable.
