    I get an error message "your connection is not private", and reloading doesn't help.
    When I click on "advanced", I get: You cannot visit www.wilderssecurity.com right now because the website uses HSTS.
    This problem is most severe in chrome.
    In Edge, I can sometimes load the site, other times it just hangs and doesn't load.
    I am running windows 10 with chrome x64.

    I am using https, still doesn't work.
    when I click on the link I just recieved, it doesn't load the page. But I can use the link in ubuntu, using chromium.

    Do you have some crappy security software installed? Did you follow steps 3 & 4 in the Google link?

    tell me about steps 3 and 4. I don't see them. And tell me about steps 1 and 2 also, because I don't see any steps.

    It might be because of a conflict between bitdefender and hitmanpro.alert, but I disabled the chrome element of HMP.A, and that didn't help, and I also tried disabling web protection in BD, and that didn't help either.

    Did you notice LowWaterMark offered not one but two links?

    thanks. I did not notice. I now tried all those solutions, but still no success.
    I uninstalled HMP.A and BD, and that didn't help either. I am kind of stumped at this point.
    EDIT: I deleted chrome history, and that fixed it. It was actually an additional solution recommended by a user on one of those links that lowwatermark provided.
    I am now able to click through to the non-secure version of the website. That's a lot better than nothing...
