Fix the error "This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources"

If you're getting "This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources" error, it's because Chrome is trying to protect you from a site that's not secure to make sure your information on the page doesn't fall into the wrong hands. If this happens, in the address bar you'll see a shield Insecure content shield icon.

Override alert

Although not recommended, you can choose to override the alert for the page by clicking Load unsafe script. Chrome will refresh the page and load its content, including any insecure content. To show that the page isn't fully secure, the address bar at the top will show https crossed-out in red: red https://.

Block certain web content

You can choose to block certain types of web content, such as JavaScript and images, for all sites by visiting your Settings page. See more information on adjusting your web content settings.

Find problem scripts on your site

If you’re a web developer, you can see the unsecure scripts found on your site: In the toolbar at the top, click View > Developer > JavaScript Console. Code that's not secure or bad extensions could cause problems.
