When visiting a website, if you receive a warning and an error message saying that the Server certificate has been revoked ERR CERT REVOKED, then it means that SSL certificate used by the website has been revoked by its issuer. This clearly means that this has to be fixed by the website owner, and there is nothing you can do. Always remember, if a website which accepts payment, passwords don’t have SSL or have certification issue, never trust it.
However, there are is one thing you need to do which is what we will share next. Also if you are sure that the website in questions is correct, and you can trust it, then we will share how to bypass it as well.
Server certificate has been revoked
1] Contact Certificate Issuer
If you are the website owner, please get in touch with your Certificate Issuer, and resolve the issue.
2] Fix Date and Time
If your computer date and time is set to date or time that is after the certificate expiration date, then you need to make sure to set your PC to automatically configure time.
- Open Settings > Time and Language.
- Turn on the toggle for Set Time Automatically and Set time zone automatically.
- In case it doesn’t work, double check if the manual selection is set correctly.
3] Bypass Certificate Revocation Check
Type Internet Options in the search box, and open it when it appears.
Switch to Advanced Tab, and navigate to Security subheading.
Uncheck “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” and “Check for server certificate revocation” options.
Reboot your computer.
This will stop the checking for certificate issues – But it’s not safe to keep those options unchecked.
