Cause & Resolution
This error message is typically caused by one (or both) of the items below:

Check your device date/time
- Tap on your device 'Settings' (outside of Sideline)

- Tap on 'Date and Time'
- Enable 'Set Automatically' (if disabled)
Ensure your security certificate is enabled
- Go to Android Settings
- Select 'Lock screen and security'
- Select 'Encryption & credentials'
- Tap 'Trusted credentials'
- Scroll to find Thawte, Inc. Primary Root CA
- Swipe right to enable (if currently disabled)
Note: If Thawte, Inc. Primary Root CA is not an option in your device’s list of security certificates, please submit a request and we’ll send you a link to download the certificate to your device.
