I try never to use Google Chrome but I live in an AM radio wasteland and iHeart doesn't work well with my current version of Firefox. Anyway, I frequently look at gellerreport.com to keep up with the latest nefarious activities of "the religion of peace". This morning I get a warning screen that the sight is insecure and may steal my stuff. I just bypassed it.

Anyone else get this message?

Just tried it and didn't get that warning.

Thanks, it must be some quirk with my OS and browser.

Probably not a quirk, I have gotten it before and also got a warning on the google search page that I have noticed is no longer there. It could be a warning generated by your ISP. They or somebody was doing it on Alex Jones too.
I think they were doing it and then backed off.

I've switched to Brave browser to get away from Google. It is secure by default so you have to enable items such as full screen, allow notifications, allow site to see your location per each site you visit, but it gives you more privacy than google.

A browser with your interests at heart.
Browse faster by blocking ads and trackers that violate your privacy and cost you time and money. https://brave.com/

That is one of the reasons I often use a VPN when on the internet. It keeps my ISP from seeing what I'm doing.

Those using Chrome, Chromium, Fire Fox and Opera can setup a VPN for free, regardless of your OS.

I had to do that for several months, my ISP was blocking me from CU.
