Has anyone had this before.When inputing a website address and hitting enter,a page comes up with a red clock stating "Clock error" with the http in the address bar having a red line thru it and the http is red.My clock and date are correct so seems suspicious.There is a blue tab on the page to "update time and date" which I will not hit.
Anyone? Charlie

Http is a non-secure website. Try https and see what happens. If problems persist it’s on their side

If it's just one website, I'm with Dingbat. It's on their end.

You can try a different browser to see if you get the same issue. So far, it doesn't sound like your computer.

I have an old computer with xp sp2 that i use as a backup in my office. I have a few newer sites such as MeWe that won't load and give me a date/time error. They run ok on two newer computers plus an older laptop that I has Linux as the operating system. Backwards compatibility is not not always there. It seems all sites don't always like you OS and/or your browser.

It happens on a bunch of websites and claims clock and date of off when they are in fact correct.Here is a screenshot.

Just tried that website on 3 of my computers. On 2 it worked ok. On the old one with an outdated OS/browser I got the same screen.

Website security is failing to reconcile the time and date stamps between your computer and the website.

Doesn't mean your computer is wrong......is your OS up to date?

If you're in Safari, try this:

Also try navigating to the site in a private browsing window.
