This guide will help you install the SSL filtering certificate for Chome-based browsers which do not use the operating system's built-in key store — this includes Chrome OS and Chrome for Linux.
These images show Chrome running on Chrome OS version 79; you may not see exactly the same thing if you are using Chrome for Linux; however, the general process and wording should be the same.
- Visit your domain's SSL certificate installation instruction page to download a certificate. By default, this is https://portal.cipafilter.com/ssl. Click the Download Certificate button.
Depending on your configuration, you may be prompted to save the certificate. If so, select a folder to save the file in, and then click Save. (In Chrome OS and some other configurations, the file may simply download immediately.) When the download has finished, a notification should appear at the bottom of the screen.
- Do not double-click the file after the download has finished; instead, click the Chrome menu (usually appearing as three horizontal lines) in the top right corner. Then, click the Settings option.
- The Chrome Settings page will open in a new tab. If necessary, scroll all the way down to the bottom; then, click Advanced or (in some configurations) Show advanced settings.
- The Settings page will expand to reveal several new options. Scroll down to the Privacy and security section and click Manage certificates.
- When the Certificate manager screen appears, click the Authorities tab. Then, click the Import button near the top.
- A file browser will appear, allowing you to select the certificate. Locate the certificate you downloaded previously (it may be in a folder called Downloads), and double-click to open it.
- A prompt will appear asking whether to trust the certificate authority. Select Trust this certificate for identifying websites and then click OK.
- You're done! After trusting the CA, you can click OK, close the Settings page, and continue browsing as usual; in most cases, you will not notice anything different after the certificate is installed.
- Mac OS X
- Google Admin Console
