Why do I get "The connexion is not protected"

  • Why do I get "The connexion is not protected" on opera, even if my website has https?

    Example: www.hlbenefits.com

  • If you are the site author, I guess you should know where to find information about the connection in browsers.

    So just go there and you will know what is happening.

  • That site does NOT use https. Is this a spam thread??

  • Actually, the site does use https, which connects as such if one uses a browser like Olde Opera or Firefox. However, chromium browsers (New Opera and Vivaldi) seem to immediately redirect themselves (or get redirected) to a non-https site page (which appears to have identical content as the https site).

    Perhaps there's a chromium-related site-certificate issue or site-code browser sniffing for certain browsers that triggers some kind of redirection to the http site version.

    In any case, it's the first such page I've run across that does this.

  • Alobpreis, however it might be...

    Blackbird, indeed!
    Not this site, perhaps not exactly, but indeed Chromiums have something about that. I mean there are two sites so far, their Facebook pages share links, https, I click - it can't connect, certain error, could find later. But if I edit the URL in the URL bar deleting the "s", that http page loads just fine. "Can't establish a secure connection" it was? I'm not sure just now.
    Other, non-Chromium browsers hit those links just fine.

  • I'm still trying to understand what you guys are talking about .. so what is the short version of the answer to why I get"The connexion is not protected"?

    Click on the globe icon on the left of the address bar and then on details. You will see that the page contains ubsecure elements and because of that is not shown as secure.

  • Ok, I see: Error: "This page contains some insecure content". Now what ? Tried searching about the insecure content error and I've seen it was a chrome bug back in 2010 and this post from 2015: https://forums.opera.com/topic/8080/certificate-exception

    Still I don't have a clue on what to do next

  • Now what ?

    Now you fix the page.

    It's not a bug in Opera, it's a problem on the page.
