Are you pulling your hair out trying to find out why your secure page is not fully secure? When you access a website using SSL from a browser for example, you receive the error ‘This website does not supply identity information’. Your connection to this website is not encrypted. This error usually occurs because the website content contains both secure and insecure content.

For example the page code might include an image or code that pulls from a non-secure URL. To resolve this issue make sure that the page code does not pull data directly from a non-secure URL.

To identify non-secure elements view the source code of the page and search for the text src=”http://

This will then highlight elements on your page being loaded from a non-secure URL.

It can be possible that there are links, images on your webpage without https/or any insecure links. These are normal browser’s errors when the page on httpS:// (secure connection) is loaded, but there are some elements like images, links on that page that drives visitors to simple http:// pages (unsecured connection). Because of this browsers gives errors.

Here’s a simple tool that will tell you about any insecure items on your SSL page!
