How to resolve “Your Connection is not private” issue?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

To put in exact quotes:

“Your Connection is not private. Attackers might be trying to steal your information from (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards)”.

This is the error I face time and again despite trying all network troubleshooting methods available on my Google Chrome for Windows. Please help me out!

How to resolve “Your Connection is not private” issue?


Google usually uses encryption to protect user’s information. When Chrome tried to connect to Google, in your case, the website did not send back legitimate credentials, which made Google to predict that either an attacker is trying to pretend to be Google, or it is a Wi-Fi sign-in request that has interrupted the connection. Your information remains secure in case of such threats, because Chrome had stopped the connection before any exchange of data was initiated.

You are not being able to visit Google now because the website uses HSTS. In case the response is prolonged, you could be having malware on your PC, trying to perform a man-in-the-middle attack by redirecting your traffic whenever you want to use Google. Flush your DNS to fix such malware issues by reaching out to the “Advanced Sharing Settings” from your “Network and Sharing Center”. You will have to turn off all accessibilities to foreign network, and turn password protection on for your computer connection.
