Many people have experienced this error/bug at some point. To start with am a proud owner of a top-notch laptop computer that operates on Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. And I used to be a dye-in-the wool fanboy of Mozilla firefox. But recently, I fell in love with google chrome majorly because it doesn’t freeze like my firefox and it doesn’t consume much system resources. Now, we are here to provide the solution to invalid server certificate on google chrome which is a message that pops-up while visiting some secure sites on your chrome using a windows computer.
This annoying bug only occurs when I am visiting an SSL site meaning any site with https e.g Facebook, Gmail, yahoo Paypal e.t.c. The exact error I get is as illustrated below:
Invalid Server Certificate
You attempted to reach mail.google.com, but the server presented an invalid certificate.
You cannot proceed because the website operator has requested heightened security for this domain.
I tried all I could to no avail to fix this work until I almost give up. And as i speak, i have found the solution and am sure that as long as this solution works for my windows 8 64 bit, it will also work for windows 7 and 10 64 bit.
However before i proceed with what ultimately solve my own SSL problem with chrome, let me first highlight all the troubleshooting aids available for the SSL bug.
