Update the system clock
Double-click on the time clock in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. Check the date and make sure that it is correct. If not, change the date and time to the correct setting by choosing the correct month and year from the drop-down menus and then choose the day on the calendar. Click OK. This will cause your computer to recognize the correct security certificates and you should not have any issues opening web pages.
If you are running into the issue when using one Internet browser, try opening the site in a different one. Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari are examples of Internet browsers. They all work in different ways, and certificates that are blocked on one may not be blocked on another.

In some cases, a site's security certificate will expire. It is up to the company that runs the site to update it. The only way for you to bypass the warning is to choose to trust the site and continue. If you do not believe that the site is trustworthy, it is better to exit rather than proceed to pass information through it.
