Quick Answer: What Happens When You Visit A Non Secure Site?

The reason you are seeing the “Not Secure” warning is because the web page or website you are visiting is not providing a secure connection.

When your Chrome browser connects to a website it can either use the HTTP (insecure) or HTTPS (secure).

Any page providing an HTTP connection will cause the “Not Secure” warning.

What happens if you visit an unsecure website?

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.

What does a not secure website mean?

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.

By default, HTTP does not encrypt communication to and from the website.
