Galaxy S3, Android 4.4.2. When I'm on data and open wifi, I get the "couldn't establish a secure connection" on some websites. I know it's the phone because I can access the same sites on other phones. The date/time are correct. I wiped the cache and rebooted. It seems like I need to relax a security setting, but not sure where to look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've just installed Google Chrome from AppStore and now it works like a charm (see screenshot)
I think it's a problem with the Android Browser.
Maybe I can fix this by reinstalling it but I guess I must be root to do that
I'll try this one of these days ...
Anyway, as for me I think that the issue is fixed: Its' definitely an Android Browser problem and it can be solved using Chrome
Thanks for your support
Have you thought about looking into resetting your network settings as a whole? I believe this can be found in your Settings menu under the Reset option.
I have attempted the fix for the secure connection issue...but, I am unable to sign in to device in the first place with any gmail account because it says that it cant find a secure connection. The login info is correct. The internet connection is good. I am able to setup email on the device and read it.
I cannot log into Google Play Store to download anything without the secure connection since it wont recognize my login info. Now what?
Have you tried resetting the network settings? Just a heads up, by resetting the network settings, it will remove all wi-fi and Bluetooth settings you currently have saved.
I am having the SAME EXACT issue my GS5 recently stopped finding a WiFi connection then stopped being able to turn on AT ALL so Im broke & started using my GS3 but Im having the SAME issues to no avail- did you figure this out or can anyone help us out please?
I'm sorry to hear that you are seeing this behavior. Have you already attempted to clear your device's cache?
You can do that by following these steps:
1. Power off your device
2. Power it back on by holding down the Volume Up, Home/Bixby, and Power keys until it boots into the Recovery Menu.
3. From here, use the volume up/down keys to highlight "Wipe Cache partition" and select it with the power key.
