    Question Google Text Messages for Web with SSL Inspector Doesn't Load

    Using untangle SSL inspector and root certificates installed on my phone and laptop, I am unable to use the "Messages for web" google app on my laptop. My phone is an android. See attached pics for additional info. At this point I am trying to just have the SSL inspector ignore the site all together but I am not successful. Ideally, I would like to have SSL inspector working for this site too.

    Site: messages dot google dot com

    Many of the Google web services only display if Google CA is used to generate the certificate. This is hard coded into their code to prevent Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attacks. This prevents SSL inspection. Fortunately and unfortunately this is the future of SSL.
