How to manually install the Securly SSL certificate in Chrome

Follow

You would want to install the Securly SSL certificate in your Chrome browser to ensure the best browsing experience. The certificate does not control the level of filtering or what sites are allowed. The certificate will prevent errors on sites that Securly decrypts. Without the certificate, sites like Google.com and Facebook.com will show privacy errors, users will perceive this as the internet being “broken”.    

To install the Securly SSL certificate manually in Chrome, open ‘chrome://settings’ in your Chrome browser (version 59.0.3071 and above)
