How To Get Back Your Green Padlock SECURE Symbol Back On Your Blog...


How To Fix Your Blog To Get Back The Green Padlock, Living From Glory To Glory Blog



Is Your Blog showing NOT SECURE

Is there a circle with and Exclamation Point ! in the middle of it,
Before your Blogs name in the Address Box ??

Well, You need to try to find out why!!!

Google has changed a few things as I am sure Blogger has also;
The World Wide Web is always changing;
Threats loom out there!

But I want to share a few things you can try to fix it yourself!
But, You still may need some real technical support.
Here are a few things to try for yourself first!

After all Blogging is not for Dummies!

1. Go to your DASHBOARD and hit SETTINGS
Under the Basics you will see, Basics, Publishing, Then
HTTPS Redirect,( If it says NO Click the Arrow and hit YES)

Hopefully this will give you back the Green Padlock that is a must.

2. Also I found this amazing site you can enter your Blog address into;
And it will give you any errors that might be in your HTML or another problem source.
It is a tool called---- Why No Padlock
Google this and give it a try!

Mixed contents is no longer being given the Green Padlock!

Blogger: How to display a Cookie Banner/notice
3. Also you will need to add the I use COOKIE NOTICE
You can Google this site for a free one;
Support. pigdig  // Blogger Cookie Notice 
Just submit...

I did not put direct links to these sites on my blog as it can cause problems also!

I hope this may help a few of you Bloggers!
It was so hard to figure out all that was causing this prompt A circle With this!

I was just stumped, I managed to figure out most of it, but still needed
some support from a wonderful man that was a God send!
Thanks Jon !!!

I am now planning on trying to write something on a fun and easy subject!
I was thinking about starting a NEW BLOG...

~Still Thinking~

Do You Still ENJOY Reading THIS Blog???

As Always, Love Going Out To You All...

  10. Yes, it is important to change over to HTTPS. Pretty easy to do in Settings. If you find your blog isn't secure, it means you have mixed content on your blog. That means some of your blog widgets, photos, signature etc. could be using HTTP. They need to match up, so your site can be secure. Also if you live in the US, there is a no need to add a cookie notice. Blogger has already included one in your blogs for people who reside in the EU.
