    Why am I getting this message today, on half the webpages I’m trying to visit?

    Have you just updated / changed the browser you are using?

    Nope, happening on Chrome and Safari.

    I haven’t heard of any issues from any SSL providers today. What sites?

    Guess what message I got when I tried to open that? ;o)

    Well, you can be pretty sure Google’s certificate is correct.

    Check your computer’s date&time are correct.

    Date and time is correct, have tried restarting too.

    Seems to be an issue with my Macbook, as work one is ok and phone too.

    offroad.cc

    Weird, just tried that site, out of curiosity, and it forwards to some random site running some sort of phishing scam:

    Not even sure how it managed to run as I run script blocker, so random sites can’t run javacode in my browser without being whitelisted….

    Hmmm, Macbook is 5 years old this month – conspiracy theory?

    Mine is from 2010 and still works fine….

    That’s interesting. The error message for Bikepacking.com has now changed to “site cannot be reached”

    After my last experience I won’t be trying any more of your website suggestions!

    I’m getting the same this morning on an increasing number of sites. I’m using Chrome on an old Window 7 laptop. Clock and date are correct.

    I’ve got a fix for that.

    That doesn’t happen to me because I’m using a not-to-be-mentioned-technology-for-webbrowsers which helpfully blocked the entire site from loading. Don’t get that with a P 😉

    Still not fixed. Must be an issue with my macbook as every other device is fine.

    I’m reasonably sure onewheelgood is on the money. I know nothing about Macs but, I suspect you need to need their root cert updating on your browser. Is there some version of Windows Update for Apple, or can you update Safari? Or, use a different browser in the interim until it catches up?

    Firefox, Brave, Ghostery or DuckDuckGo, with DuckDuckGo as search? And use DuckDuckGo as search in Safari, which is what I do in iOS. And start using a VPN as well.

    Have a look in Settings. Have you got a pending update?

    I have been getting the same problem on my old Mac. I suspect Safari.

    Would Firefox fix it?

    My computer clock is automatically set to Apple Europe (time.euro.apple.com.)

    Could this be another Brexshit benefit? 🙂

    Just seen this, I had a simular issue on Saturday, appeared to be related to Cloudflare DNS. It sorted itself out pretty quickly.
