How to solve not secure warning when logging into WordPress

Last Updated on December 13, 2020

When I logged into my WordPress site via Google Chrome, I was warned with “The information you’re about to submit is not secure. Because the site is using a connection that’s not completely secure, your information will be visible to others.”

Not secure connection when logging into WordPress

At first I did not understand why it was giving me this warning after more than year of setting up HTTPS in my site.

I have already setup my site to have HTTPS access with the use of an SSL Certificate.

On top of that I have already updated my .htaccess to do 301 redirection to HTTPS.

As it turns out I forgot to update a configuration in my WordPress Settings.

Follow the steps below to solve the not secure warning.

Steps to remove the Not Secure warning when logging into WordPress

Login as an Administrator to to WordPress. If the warning occurs, click Send anyway.

Go to Settings >> General.

Change the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to start with https://.

Then scroll down to the bottom and click on Save Changes.

This will log you out of WordPress.

Log in again and the not secure error will no longer appear.

We hope this helps.
