‘SSL Scanner’ At ‘SSLTools.com’, Nifty Way To Check That Your Website Is 100% Secure.
I was told about this tool, i.e., SSL Scanner, by wordpress.com support.
Google Chrome was claiming that this blog (the one you are reading) was not 100% secure. That confused me since I use SSL certificates and am 100% legit. The support person said I had ONE insecure link on the blog! Holy Smokes. It was my link to the so called ‘Flag Counter‘ — i.e., the widget that showed the number of hits I get from various countries. I checked. Yes, ‘they’ were right. NOT a secure ‘https:’ link. Hence the warning. I removed the ‘Flag Counter’. It was an OLD version. The new version is FINE. I just haven’t god around to using it.
BINGO. Immediately Chrome started showing the full PADLOCK. Have a look at the top. This blog is 100% secure, 100% safe. There is THE PADLOCK.
So, I wanted to share this with you. Handy took. Works well and works FAST.
Now the ULTIMATE irony. The SSLtools Website is NOT secure. It is possible that they have to be like that in order that they can serve the largest audience. Just found it amusing.
