Why is my website showing "Not Secure"?

If you're using an SSL certificate, either a third party certificate that you had us install for you, or the free, included Let's Encrypt certificate for your top level domain, the most common cause for this is due to loading mixed content. This means that your website is using remote resources (CSS files, images, JavaScript libraries, etc) that are not being requested through HTTPS.

The easiest way to find what content is mixed is to open your browser's developer tools. Most browsers will let you right click on the webpage and select "Inspect". From there, you'll open the console tab, which will show specifically which content is being requested that is mixed, allowing you to then find that content on a secure source.
