[Chrome] Error when accessing https websites

Hello,

Every time I access a secure website (https) in Chrome, I always get the error message below (see image):

In Firefox, I can just import the site's certificate, then it will be included in the security exception list, so I don't have to see the error message every time I access the site. Is there a way in Chrome where I can do the same thing?

It would make sense to give users a choice. I've been accessing the same site (and similar ones) for work purposes (so of course I trust it), so it gets rather inconvenient seeing this error. 

The site's security certificate is not trusted!

You attempted to reach 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 your 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.

Hoping to hear from you.

Thanks,

Jan

You need to disable a self sign certificate in case the website is using one. Tale your browser to trust self certificate or you can buy a trusted self-signed certificate. The last option is a very common one.

For example, if PayPal installed their server certificate for www.paypal.com without installing VeriSign's Class 3 Extended Validation SSL SGC CA intermediate certificate, a web browser would give the certificate not trusted error. You can verify whether the certificate will get a certificate not trusted error by using our SSL Checker. Here is the message:

Hi JC,

Anyone can create a fake security certificate today and therefore Google Chrome protects you by showing the message “"The site's security certificate is not trusted!"

If you are absolutely sure about the web page security then you can see the web page by clicking on the button “Proceed Anyway” and if you are not sure about the security you can click on “Back to Safety” and you will return to previous page.

Therefore, to avoid going to previous page, click on “Proceed Anyway”.
