Privacy HSTS Error for child's Chromebook

Hello,

 

I'm setting up my son's Chromebook for school with a Kids filter in Circle. When he tries to log on in the morning, he gets the following error:

HSTS error

 

"Your connection is not private," "NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID,"

 

When I try to reboot the computer, it also tells me that the "network may require additional login information" and will not allow me him to log in using ChromeOS.

 

By removing the device and putting it inot an unfiltered group, he can use the computer, and I typically enable the filter once he's logged in, but the problem happens all over again the next morning.  I cannot accept the certificate because there is no option to do so.

 

I've searched the forum and it appears that I'm not the only one with this issue, but no resolution has been posted. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this? I'd prefer not to be the IT help desk every morning.

 

Thanks so much,

 

Brian

I've encountered a similar issue to the one described by Bewong15.
It started occurring after I recently updated to firmware V2.5.1.22.
The only way to workaround this issue is by moving my devices (including my work computer) into an unfiltered group within the Circle App, which is not ideal.  I'm hoping you have found a solution the this issue now and I would be grateful if you could share it with me.
Regards,
Ben.
