Only Secure Content Is Displayed – How To Resolve This Issue With Window Explorer

Issue:explorer

When viewing a website in Internet Explorer 9 or later, you receive a message that says “Only secure content is displayed.”

Reason:

This is to tell you that there may be both secure and non-secure content on the page. Secure and non-secure content, or mixed content, means that a webpage is trying to display elements using both secure (HTTPS/SSL) and non-secure (HTTP) web server connections.

This often happens with online stores or financial sites that display images, banners, or scripts that are coming from a server that is not secured. The risk of displaying mixed content is that a non-secure webpage or script might be able to access information from the secure content on your website.

Solution: Widows 7

To Disable/Enable/Prompt the “Only secure content is displayed” message do the following:

  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tool menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Security tab, and then click Custom level.
  4. In the Settings box, scroll down to the Miscellaneous section, and under Display mixed content choose one option from the following…Disable, will not display non-secure items.
    Enable, will always display non-secure items without asking
    Prompt, will prompt you when a webpage is using non-secure content

Solution- Windows 8

  1. From the start screen, type Internet Options.
  2. Tap or click the Settingsoption below the Search box, and then tap or click Internet Options.
  3. Tap or click the Secruity tab, and then tap or click the Custom Level.
  4. In the Settings box, scroll down to the Miscellaneous section, and under Display mixed content choose from the following options:Disable, will not display non-secure items.
    Enable, will always display non-secure items without asking
    Prompt, will prompt you when a webpage is using non-secure content

This will resolve this issue for you for both windows 7 and 8,  but on the expense of some security,  so, please think twice before applying this option.
