If your browser says a page is unsecure, this means SSL (TLS) encryption is turned off.
It is often seen as a missing padlock icon where one should appear near the address of the web page you are viewing.
The correct response is to avoid giving sensitive personal information such as a credit card number.
Are unsecured websites safe?
Communication may not be secure and the user’s interactions with the website can be hacked. The internet would be a safer place if all website traffic was encrypted and Google is trying to pressure companies into encrypting their websites with the HTTPS protocol by warning users about unencrypted sites.
What happens when you visit a non secure site?
When you receive the website not secure notification on your site, what this means is that part of the content being loaded is coming over without encryption. When the communication between your computer and your browser is in the open, the transmitted data can be viewed or tampered with.
How do I change my website from not secure to secure?
Open Chrome, type chrome://flags in the address bar, then press “Enter“.
- Type the word “secure” in the search box at the top to make it easier to find the setting we need.
- Scroll down to the “Mark non-secure origins as non-secure” setting and change it to “Disabled” to turn off the “Not Secure” warnings.
