Recently, Google Chrome announced that they will soon initiate blocking mixed content also called insecure content on web pages.
This feature will be started rolling out from the beginning of December 2019. This should give website owners enough time to check and fix mixed content errors and fix them before the block goes live.
Failing to do so will lead to poor user experience, loss of website traffic, and loss of sales.
Here we will explain about Google Chromeâ€™s mixed content blocking and ways to get prepared for it.
What is Mixed Content?
Mixed content is actually a term used to describe non-https content loading on an HTTPS website.
HTTPS is a protocol for websites using a SSL certificate to deliver content. This technology ensures website security and makes websites more secure by encrypting the data transfer between a website and end-userâ€™s browser. This means no one can see the data you send to or fro.
Microsoft, Google, Smartgators, WordPress.org, WPBeginner, and many other organizations are pushing HTTPs to use as the standard protocol for websites. The success rate is much more and around 90% of the chrome users now spend browsing time on HTTPS on all platforms.
