Adsense "Invalid Security Certificate"

  1. Robin Layne profile image75
    Robin Layneposted 9 years ago

    When I try to go to AdSense, I get a notice saying:
    Secure Connection Failed
    www.adsense.com uses an invalid security certificate.

    The certificate is only valid for www.google.com

    (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

        * This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

        * If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may be temporary, and you can try again later.

         Or you can add an exception…
     
    You should not add an exception if you are using an internet connection that you do not trust completely or if you are not used to seeing a warning for this server.



    It's been a long time since I went to AdSense, and it was on another computer. What is going on? How long has it been going on? Should I make an exception, even though it says that a valid site would not insist on one? (I am using my own computer now, and I trust it; I'm the only person who uses it.)
