When you try to open a web page in Microsoft Edge and you see an error code – DLG_FLAGS_INVALID_CA DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_CN_INVALID in your Windows 10 PC, it means that there’s something wrong with the website’s certificate. This occurs if the website runs on HTTPS.
There can be many reasons why you are seeing the DLG_FLAGS_INVALID_CA DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_CN_INVALID error in Microsoft Edge. It’s either that Edge cannot recognize the website’s certificate, the website certificate has expired or has not been installed properly, or the website is running on HTTPS with no authentic certificate, but acts like it has one. While the website’s certificate is managed by the website owner or the administrator, there is a way to fix this issue.
