Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using chrome on Ubuntu 12.10. There are always message from chrome :

`The identity of this website has not been verified.

Your connection to askubuntu.com is not encrypted.`

Facebook and Twitter do not appear such message. What's wrong? What can I do?

Nothing is wrong, if you click the "What do these mean?" you will see https://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95617&p=ui_security_indicator

The site isn't using SSL. This icon displays for http:// sites. Most sites don’t need to use SSL because they don’t handle sensitive information. Avoid entering sensitive information, such as your credit card information or bank login information, on the page. If sensitive information is being requested on a site not using SSL, consider contacting the website owner.
