    Resolved [RESOLVED] How to prevent the "Not Secure" from showing on Browser?

    Please see the attached image. The screen shot is from Google Chrome. How do you prevent this from appearing? I'm building a simple site and I'm not sure how to avoid that "Not Secure" issue!

    Thanks,

    Presumably you are seeing that because you are browsing the site via http rather than https. Does your site have an SSL certificate?

    No...there is no SSL certificate.

    In that case getting a SSL certificate is your first step - https://letsencrypt.org/ might be worth looking at.

    If I get this certificate, then anyone will be able to view the site without receiving that "Not Secure" message, correct?

    Possibly, SSL is really the first step - you need to also make sure that people are accessing the site via https:// not http:// and that any content the page includes is also accessed using https://

    https://www.troyhunt.com/the-6-step-...path-to-https/ is probably a good place to start if you want to be sure you are doing things correctly.
