Not a biggie, more just curious...

I use Chrome on my MacBook most of the time. If I try to log in to the DireTV web site I get "Invalid Server Certificate". I called DirecTV on this and suggested there was a problem. They assured me there isn't and suggested I try another browser. Sure enough it works fine on the same MacBook using Safari. This has been so for several months.

I've run into a few other web sites where I have to use Safari instead of Chrome for other reasons, but not "Invalid Server Certificate". Mostly just an annoyance but wanting to satisfy my curiosity.

I don't use Chrome but I searched the web and found this:

In such a case we must let you know That it was just a technical issue and the issue has been resolved quickly as expected . Chrome released an update named Chrome Stable which will help you to Fix the Invalid server certificate issues and let you fix the problem .

Make sure your time and date are set correctly, and your timezone, with daylite savings turned off. If your time is off it will always cause Cert. errors.
