Privacy Error

Hi, I use a subdomain on Cloudflare DNS for my site hosted on Obsidian Publish. It was working fine when I set it up last night, but now I receive the following message when visiting the site:

Your connection isn’t private

type or paste code here

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from


* **lethologic.ajairaj.com** (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).

NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

And I receive this detailed message with the certificate on MS Edge:
NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

Appreciate any help, thank you!

Hello there,

At the moment, your site is not pointing to Cloudflare. You need to fix that issue first before diving to certificate error. Ensure you’ve added the origin ip in the DNS records in CF & proxied :orange:

Thank you! I see all I had to do was turn proxying on. Appreciate the quick response!
