Google site certificate problem

Went round to my daughter's this morning to be greeted by my grandson complaining his tablet couldn't access the internet, particularly Google Play.
I checked it out, uninstalled the anti-virus and flushed cookies amongst other things suggested on Google help forum....no luck.
Later in the day I had another look and a bolt of lightning struck me.....the date on the device Roll eyes
I'm so used to devices setting their own date that I didn't check this straight away.....it was set to the 2nd of January 2012 and the Google security certificate had a start date around mid February 2014.
Set the date and time on the tablet and all is well.

I had a related problem on a tablet the other day.
Helping a friend who had a Windows tablet that had been replaced under warranty. They were stuck because it wouldn't activate.
Again, the date was back in 2012!

If I had a quid for every time I saw this......... I'd probably be able to buy a couple of crates of Guinness !

Re: Google site certificate problem

It's quite a few years since I've come across it and at that time it was a Windows server Huh
