When viewing a website in Internet Explorer 11 or later, you receive a message that says "Only secure content is displayed."
This message is telling 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.
To Disable/Enable/Prompt the “Only secure content is displayed” message:
- From the start screen, type Internet Options.
- Tap or click the Settingsoption below the Search box, and then tap or click Internet Options.
- Tap or click the Secruity tab, and then tap or click the Custom Level.
- 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
