Sometimes when we open Facebook or Gmail, the page will not open and prompts as “SSL Error”. What is this SSL means? It is the “Secure Socket Layer” which is the security system used by browsers especially the Google Chrome for secure login. How this SSL error occurs? SSL works based on the Security certificates authenticated during the browser installation. The browser works only if the date and time of the computer is up-to-date. Sometimes the date and time may change automatically if the computer is shutdown incorrectly. Switch off through UPS, Power failure, Battery flat in Laptops etc causes this error. So what will do if the SSL error appears?
1. At the bottom right corner of the desktop, there is “time and date”. It should be the current date and time. If it shows a back date and year, say 2001, it is the reason for SSL error
2. Right click on the date and time. A window will open. Click on “Adjust date and time”.
3. In the window opened, you can change date and time.
4. In the calendar, you can change the year by using the click button at the top. On clicking the button, year will progress and you can arrive at 2015.
5. Then adjust time. This can be done by selecting or using back space to remove the time and retyping the current time.
6. Finally click OK.
7. Then close the browser, if already opened and reopen. Then search. You can open the websites.
