I've just installed a SSL certificate on my web site, but when I view it in my browser (Chrome), the browser warns me that it's not totally secure:

Browser warning

What am I doing wrong, and how do I correct it?


Anything with a reference to non-https links will invalidate the site.

This includes all css, images, js etc.

For Google Analytics see - http://support.google.com/googleanalytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=55483 for secure tracking

  • Thanks - answer credit for the link to the Google Analytics FAQ! – Shaul Behr Apr 20 '12 at 8:15

Because you reference objects that are not fetched over https, or are served via a server with a self-signed or expired certificate. Usually googles analytics.js or similar.

Use firebug or something similar to determine what the objects are.

  • Aha, so using Google Analytics invalidates your SSL? That could be it... – Shaul Behr Apr 20 '12 at 8:03
  • Including non ssl objects will cause these warnings, yes. – 3molo Apr 20 '12 at 8:38
