How do you fix your connection is not private on iOS 14?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To fix the “Your Connection is Not Private” error on iOS 14, you can try the following solutions:

Solution 1: Restart iPhone, Router, and Mac.
Sometimes, simply restarting your devices can resolve the issue. Start by turning off your iPhone, then power off your router and Mac. Wait for a few minutes, then turn them back on and see if the error persists.

Solution 2: Disable VPN.
If you have a VPN (Virtual Private Network) enabled on your device, try disabling it and see if the error goes away. VPNs can sometimes interfere with the secure connection and trigger the “Your Connection is Not Private” error.

Solution 3: Set Correct Date and Time.
Incorrect date and time settings on your device can cause SSL certificate errors. Ensure that your iPhone, Mac, and router have the correct date, time, and time zone settings. You can check and adjust these settings in the “Date & Time” section of your device’s settings.

Solution 4: Turn Off Security Software/App.
If you have any security software or antivirus apps installed on your iPhone or Mac, they may be blocking the secure connection. Temporarily disable them and check if the error persists. If the error goes away after disabling the security software, you may need to adjust the settings or consider using a different software.

Solution 5: Try These.
– Clear Safari browsing data: Open Settings on your iPhone, go to Safari, and tap on “Clear History and Website Data.” This can help resolve any cache or cookie-related issues.
– Update iOS: Ensure that your iPhone is running the latest version of iOS 14. Apple often releases updates that address various bugs and security vulnerabilities.
– Reset network settings: Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will remove all saved Wi-Fi networks and their passwords, so make sure you have them handy before proceeding.

Solution 6: Use Safari in Private Mode.
If you encounter the error on a specific website, you can try accessing it using Safari’s Private Mode. Open Safari, tap on the tab icon at the bottom right corner, then tap on “Private” to enter private browsing mode. This can bypass certain security settings that may be causing the error.

Solution 7: Clear Safari Cache.
If the error is persistent in Safari, clearing the browser cache might help. Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data. This will remove all browsing history, cookies, and cache data from Safari.

These solutions should help you resolve the “Your Connection is Not Private” error on iOS 14. However, if the issue persists, you may need to contact your internet service provider or the website’s administrator for further assistance.
