Instructions for approving a self-signed certificate in Chrome on Mac
First of all, I got this from here, so all credits go there.
On Mac, Chrome uses the system keychain for certificate lookup, so we need to add it there. Here’s how:
- In the address bar, click the little lock with the X. This will bring up a small information screen. Click the button that says “Certificate Information.”
- Click and drag the image to your desktop. It looks like a little certificate.
- Double-click it. This will bring up the Keychain Access utility. Enter your password to unlock it.
- Be sure you add the certificate to the System keychain, not the login keychain. Click “Always Trust,” even though this doesn’t seem to do anything.
- After it has been added, double-click it. You may have to authenticate again.
- Expand the “Trust” section.
- “When using this certificate,” set to “Always Trust”
That’s it! Close Keychain Access and restart Chrome, and your self-signed certificate should be recognized now by the browser.
