Chrome Won’t Let You Proceed to Website with Invalid Certificate

As an IT professional it’s quite common that have to connect web servers with invalid certificates, for different reasons. For expample opening a management GUI of an appliance may be necessary to change its own certificate or TLS settings.

Problem: sometimes chrome won’t let you open this website, and gives you no “Proceed on” button. Chrome thinks all its users are end users and does not support professionals.

Workaround: there is a hidden feature: you can type “thisisunsafe” blindly into the error page to proceed. Found on Stackoverflow.

Version: tested with chrome 104
