SSL errors

What is an SSL error?

There are many different SSL errors that can occur while browsing with or without proxies. It is an error that may appear when you try to establish a secure connection with a website's server.

How to avoid receiving SSL errors?

There are a few different SSL errors and the most common way to avoid them is making sure that your browser/tool/code is up to date. Using outdated software may cause SSL version mismatches which will then eliminate the option to access a certain website. Also, make sure that your device is using the correct time settings and has all the necessary security updates.

Other useful steps

  • Clear your browser's cache;
  • If using custom code, make sure that your dependencies are up to date;
  • Make sure that you are not using a self-signed certificate;
  • Avoid visiting websites with outdated SSL certificates;
  • Check your anti-virus settings;
  • If using Windows, try clearing SSL State.


If you keep running into SSL errors, try downgrading your Chrome to v72
