In October 2017, Google Chrome (version 62) will show a ‘Not secure’ warning messages in the address window when users visit standard HTTP page, and HTTPS pages that contain non-secure HTTP content. If your listing contains non-secure HTTP content, Google will view your listings as not secure and display the message.

HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol and is what handles data communication on the internet. HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP (the "S" stands for "Secure"). This ensures data privacy and security by encrypting communications from all parties.

You need to check if your listings for contain non-secure content. This could include links to pictures or images referenced as HTTP instead of HTTPS. You must update your listings if they contain HTTP (non-secure) references. An HTTP reference will look something like this: "HTTP://". is in the process of making the entire site secure with HTTPS. However, external content is outside of our control. You need to make sure that your listings, additional terms of sale and externally (not on hosted pictures are being served securely over HTTPS.

If you have listings on a third party server or service that supports HTTPS but those pictures are currently referenced as HTTP, please contact us as we may be able to assist you in the transition. Please contact your provider directly with questions about their level of support.
