Preventing Google security halting page loading

If you have struck Google security preventing you from loading a page which is perfectly reliable, then this post is for you.

I have been stuck at a Uni database, being told that "Your connection is not private"; when I know the Uni's site is PERFECTLY OK. It is Google which is having unnecessary conniptions. I can get past it, by clicking the 'continue to site although it it not safe", but many times the page does not load because of the phantom security concerns. Dealing with this type of crap wastes a lot of work time.

And then, I found this weird fix. We can apparently - and I not sure yet if this works all the time, but it did work once, so let's go with this for now - prevent the warning from appearing.

Apparently all we need to do is to click a blank section of the "denial" message page. Then, using our keyboard, we simply key the following (please note, there are NO spaces):

thisisunsafe

The authors suggest that keying this will add the website to a safe list, and so, supposedly we should not get the denial message again. 

It will be interesting to see if it actually works each time, but I have had it work once.

Will keep you posted.
