Thanks for asking this. I was wondering myself.

Hi Juma. The best and only thing to do is to eliminate the Not Secure indicator through changing it into Secure. One is to install SSL and serve your website through HTTPS. HTTP usage will cause Google to inform security warnings to the website. You need to add an SSL Certificate to avoid it.

SSL Certificate is a secure certificate, a document used to confirm that an individual or organization is who they say they are. HTTP is not a secure protocol. HTTPS is the one that is secure.

Best Regards, Florentino

It will be due to your images using HTTP instead of HTTPS, you can follow the steps in the post below to resolve this:

It is true that the images from site content were that ones coursing the issues, but when I tried to edit the http:// to https:// problem remains the same until I remove the images from the site content editor. Wonder if I can use these images again?

The post I created was for that specific reason, but the solution will resolve 90% of similar issues. If it isn’t the images, then it might be an affiliate link that you have added. It could also be the site/base URL for WordPress, if it is, you can ask SiteSupport to change it from HTTP to HTTPS. But I’m pretty certain it will be your images as you say it isn’t all pages/posts.

Just let site support know with the URLs that are affected and they can sort. It happened to me and it was done really quickly
