I recently created a blog on Blogger and even though it is a service offered by Google, Google Chrome shows the Blog as 'Not Secure'. What is the reason? How do I make sure that people are not afraid to access the Blog due to this? How do I convince Google it is secure?

  • I am using the default site URL - [name].blogspot.com
  • I am not using any 3rd party themes and/or gadgets.
  • My blog does not include custom code or any such input.
  • he blog is purely text by all means.
  • It was created on 26th January 2021.

I tried to enable the HTTPS redirect from what I read on this Google Support post, but this did not make a difference (at least immediately). I visited the site the next day and it was marked as 'connection secure'.

Before I read the link above, I tried to do many different Google searches, but none of them worked out.

    Are you connecting over TLS? Does the url start with https://? Jan 28 at 16:00

The way to make sure that your blogs are listed as 'secure' are that you must enable what is known as a 'HTTPS redirect' in your blog settings.

To access this setting, go to -> settings -> HTTPS and then enable an option called 'HTTPS redirect' if not already enabled.

Though the site will take time to be listed as 'secure', the patience is totally worth it as people will trust you and your blog if Google vouches for it.
