This site is not secure – Error code: DLG_FLAGS_INVALID_CA

OR

This site is not secure – Error code: DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_CN_INVALID

When there is an error message that states, the site is not secure, that means there is some issue with the website’s certificate when the website is reached via HTTPS. Most likely the problem would be on the website’s end and we cannot do much about it. However, if you notice that you are getting the same error when you visit many other websites, then this could mean some settings from your end needs to be changed.

Possible reasons for this error to occur:

  • The date and time setting is changed in our system. Since the date and time in the certificate and our system do not match, the certificate is not being validated and the above error is thrown
  • The browser is trying to open the cached copy of the website, instead of the updated copy
