My responsive-design site (in profile) has done extremely well over the last year. However, after recently upgrading my mobile phone and adding a few apps, I was alarmed to see that Facebook for Android displays a warning when I follow a link to my site:
"Warning - there is a security issue with this site. Go Back or Ignore Warning and Continue to Site."
Whoa - Imagine how many visitors are being scared away when they see this!
My site is not SSL encrypted, I do not have any HTTPS pages, nor do I have a cert installed. All my pages validate with W3C and browsers render in Standards Compliant mode.
However, the W3C mobileOK Checker identified the culprits: 4 outgoing HTTPS links to Youtube, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. I have these Social Media icons in my header for all pages. These links are triggering FB's security check for a valid SSL cert and when not found, causing the warning (I assume.)
The links are part of a successful social media campaign so they need to stay, but that warning needs to get resolved.
Question - even though I have no plans to switch to HTTPS protocol, would installing a SSL cert get rid of the warnings?
