Whi is google chrome showing a not secure message even though SSL is installed?

    Whi is google chrome showing a not secure message even though SSL is installed?

    A lot of my websites are using the LetsEncrypt certificates, which are installed by default by CPanel.

    The websites are accessible via https.
    SEMrush
    Chrome seems to be showing a "Not secure" icon for these sites.

    Google does not sees LetsEncrypt as secure?
    If not, then what is the point of that service?
    And if its secure, then why is google not respecting that certificate?

    Example sites:
    https://tipsOx.com/

    https://VagMineTech.com/

    there are many others, all show a "not secure" message.

    Chrome is warning people that if they enter personal info, then it can be stolen by hackers.
    In my code also I have made all possible arrangements to make sure that my site users stay safe,
    then who is google to notify them that its not a secure site???

    Isn't google itself a spyware of a sort??? Tracking all activity of people using chrome, google, gmail etc...

    Hello,

    I am seeing SECURE in Google chrome for both sites. Maybe your local issue. You should reset your Chrome settings.

    Thank you.

    @JEET I tested these sites from multiple machines and all are showing "SECURE", I suggest you to simply reset your chrome settings. It will work for you.

    Show fine in my Chrome. It's something locally, in your computer. Maybe restarting it will fix it?

    They are both secure in my chrome. Have you tried using another browser? What the result?

    Other browsers were showing fine, secure.
    Issue was with chrome only.
    Its ok now.
    However, I still get "not secure" message on one page of the website, even though rest of the website is showing secure.
    Only one page of the site is showing not secure...
    Not sure what is happening...

    I also had this, it was the images were not https but the rest of the website was. I still have a problem where now the security certificate of my website https://paragontools.com.au is good, but when you type the address in without the au (and I have a redirect there), it comes up with a "people trying to steal your information message". Spoke to godaddy as they are my domain registrants and they haven't been able to fix it argh!!!

    .com and .com.au are completely different domains.
    You will need a separate certificate for .com domain, only then https will work on the .com version.
    Doesn't matters if you only use it to redirect users to .com.au version.
    As soon as someone goes to https .com site, error will come up if a certificate is not there.

    I think godaddy still charges for a SSL certificate, when almost every other hosting provider has letsencrypt free service installed...

    I used to work as freelance coder until 5 years back, had a client on godaddy, complete nightmare and headache hosting.
