Attackers-might-be-able-to-see-images

You might be wondering why your domain is giving you “Your connection to this site is not fully secure Attackers might be able to see the images you’re looking at on this site and trick you by modifying them.” warning on Chrome browser. You are not alone. But fortunately there is a solution for this.


Why Do I See This Error?

Even though you have SSL installed on your server, you can see this error and this simply means your website contains “http” links on its pages. You can even see this error on some pages instead of every page.  It can be an image that’s linked to an external website starts with “http” instead of “https”. We don’t want “http” links in our site so to eliminate this SSL error, we need to get rid of these “http” links.
