Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):


i've been using google chrome for so long now. but suddenly, when i opened my google chrome today, the gray planet appeared on the address bar. when i click it, it says "identity of this website has not been verified" and "your connection to 'www.' is not encrypted". i thought it will only appear when i go to facebook but then i was wrong. it appears to all the website i go to, even google.com. is there something wrong with my browser? how can i remove the gray planet in the address bar and restore it back to the way it looked before?

i would really appreciate it if someone can help me as soon as possible. thank you.! :)

Having the very same problem here. Can't figure out why the encryption has suddenly disappeared and why even google's security cert can't be verified. Reluctant to use the internet unless I'm sure my connection is safe...

Somebody answer please!

Same Problem!
All of a sudden google chrome is not encrypted. The top area is grey and there is no arrow to "enter" any url I type in. No "http" shows. Information is..site is not encrypted. Does not matter the url/site, it is Chrome. Flash and Chrome are latest versions.  Will posting here get any help/solution?

Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted deleriousgem 9/9/10 11:37 PM
Nothing has changed......... apparently the grey logo is permanent but the fact that the is n encryption and the website can't be verified worries me.... I do get https when going into secure sites like banking etc, the lock also shows when logging into gmail.  However, every other site I go to no encryption.... I am a mac user I loved chrome but something needs to be done asap, how do we contact the developers?
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted PegLegNerd 9/10/10 12:05 AM
Same problem, worries me as I had boxes popping up saying I couldn't log into igoogle because my account was from a "newer" version of chrome. I'm thinking the update they released has something messed up in it.

Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/10/10 6:11 AM
There is no problem.  Clicking this icon simply shows you the security information pop-up for the page you're viewing.  The icon for this used to be at the right of the address bar, and the information was always available, you just didn't notice it before.

The security information shows three things:

1) whether there is a security certificate for the page, and if so, who provides the certificate, and which company has registered the page (eg your bank).

2) whether your connection is encrypted.

3) whether the page is in your browsing history and, if so, when you first visited it.

The messages you are reading for the grey globe icon are simply telling you the page is not encrypted, and does not have a security certificate.  That is normal for most pages on the web.  Only pages where you supply or read sensitive personal information usually have encryption and security certificates. Where the page is https SSL encrypted, the green padlock icon should show, and you can read information about the security certificate for the site.

You should always check for the green padlock when entering personal information.  The security certificate provides verified information about the owner of the site.  Anyone can set up a https site and pretend to be your bank, but no-one else can have their security certificate, so this is how you tell the site is really from your bank, not a copy of your bank's site.

You may sometimes see a white padlock with a red cross.  If you click this icon, you will be told why - either there is insecure content on the page, or the security certificate is out of date.  Contact the genuine site owner if you have concerns.  Also make sure you have the correctly spelled URL (web address), not a phishing site.

Incidentally you can drag the grey globe icon to a bookmark folder, a document, an email, a search box, etc, to drop the URL in there.

Chrome should provide a link on the Security Information pop-up to the help page which explains it:
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted CourtneyWhitmore 9/10/10 10:43 AM
I have the same problem BUT --- now I can't add a page to bookmark by simply clicking the icon I used to click - now the gray globe shows not encrypted as opposed to "do you want to add this to your bookmarks bar"...
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/10/10 11:01 AM
The star icon used to do two things:

1) To do what happened when you used to click it, click the star at the right of the address bar.

2) To do what happened when you used to drag it, drag the grey globe at the left of the address bar.

Thank you "mabb" for your answer, but still I am not clear.
Address bar in Chrome used to show web site icon like "Google" or "BBC" and now showing Grey-Earth.
Apparently it all started early this week.  What had changed?  Chrome was updated to do this, so we do not worry about?  If that is so, it is nice that Google inform user about the change.

Red Skull
When I open Google Doc from pull down menu of "more", site shows with green lock.
But I get the red skull when I go to Google Doc via iGoogle gadget.

I posted a screen cast at youtube.

Help me solve this issue.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted togooornottogoo 9/10/10 10:53 PM
P.S.
At previous post I was confused Chrome with IE.  IE shows site icon at address bar, not Chrome.

Chrome in my other PC (notebook win 7) is behaving like used to do. Chrome ver 5.0.375.125
not showing "grey earth" neither "red skull" but "http"

PC (old desk top XP) with "grey earth" is with Chrome ver 6.0.472.55.

I am reluctant to update the chrome of notebook PC.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/11/10 9:36 AM
@togooornottogoo  Your problem is a mystery.

1) Try clicking the red skull to see the Security Information pop-up, to see what it says and compare this with what you see when you have the green padlock.

2) Can you delete your iGoogle gadget and re-create it, to see if it works then?

If (2) doesn't fix it, you have to decide whether the information you get from (1) is a cause for concern or not.  If it seems OK, you might decide not to worry.

Either way, the problem is probably not with Chrome, so there should be no reason not to update on your other PC.  New versions of browsers are usually the most secure.

If there is a problem, it would be with Docs or iGoogle, I think, but it is probably not a real issue.  There have been similar issues with Gmail.  Probably the new version of Chrome is just displaying more prominently a message about some insecure content.  The message was probably there before, but less prominent.

In any case, you have a way to use Docs with the green padlock for full reassurance.

There is a related discussion here:
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted MrShaunyAnderson 9/11/10 9:50 AM
I Believe the grey globe is a new update because i was worrying about the safety of my data as well as most of you having the same problem. However if you go into a webpage where you have to enter in secure data such as a password in a login, the globe changes and a green https lock appears. When you click this it will or should show the identiy and connection as being verified and encrypted. I've tried this on the youtube login page and the paypal login page with the same result. Therefore I believe that it is just an update.

Not only do I get gray globe instead of previous convenient way to click on star in same spot to bookmark a page (and also notice same things others describe), but previous shortcut keyboard ctrl  + shift +B no longer pulls up my bookmarks, instead I have to hit the "wrench" symbol and go to bookmark manager (cumbersome). Plus I used to have TWO symbols on right, the wrench and another symbol (forget what it was) that took me into a helpful list of things. This latter symbol has now (today) disappeared). Last night all was fine on Chrome, this morning Chrome is wacko.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/11/10 12:48 PM
@dissenta  

1) The star is now on the right of the address bar, to add a bookmark.
2) An odd short cut to learn: Alt+E, then press B on its own, to get the bookmark manager.
3) The page menu (the other symbol) has been combined into the wrench menu.

I'm having the same problem as everybody here and downloaded firefox to see if the same thing occurs.  Yes!  it does!  it's not justgoogle chrome but firefox which makes me think it's my computer!  but it's all y'all too, so...I'm just scared.  even to be signed in here writing this.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/11/10 3:44 PM
There is no problem!  It is simply information you are unfamiliar with.  Only web pages that begin https:// are encrypted.  That is the way the web has always been!

What has changed is that the new version of Chrome has rearranged and redesigned icons, so you are encountering information you previously were unaware of.  It is a shame Google didn't put up a screen explaining the new design.

If you want to bookmark a page, the star is on the right of the address bar.

@ mabb

I don't like it.  I don't like it one bit.  Who do I complain to?  And BTW, I did find a Trojan on my computer today which I believe I removed but it adds to my heightened level of fear.  It's all too coincidental.  So yes, to whom do I complain?  This is an unacceptable amount of worried people.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/11/10 4:08 PM
@wcintula

I don't know how to reassure you.  Have you read the help page that explains the Security Informatio pop-up?  This is not new.  I have used it for a long time.  All that has changed is the icons in Chrome are redesigned in appearance and rearranged on the screen for Chrome 6.0.  I have contacted Chrome, via their blog, to tell them about the users in panic over this. I suggest you might read the latest post on the Chrome blog at:


Then I suggest you click on the link on that page for "send us a message" if you are still concerned.  But believe me there really is no problem.  The Security Information pop-up is not new, and does what it always did.  It is useful information if you understand it.  You just didn't see it before, because the icon to access it was in a different place.

As with all the others, I have had the same problem and was worried about my security.  Thanks mabb for explaining the change, it is a pity there was no message to say this was happening.
I have however noticed that when I access my Virgin email the https and padlock are there at log in but as soon as I am in my mail account it is no longer there and there appears to be no encryption....
Is this right and should I be worried?
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted togooornottogoo 9/11/10 8:06 PM
@mabb

Thank you for your response.

1) I compared the security information of both Green Lock and Red Skull.
The difference is at Connection, Red Skull has a phrase "However This page includes other resources which ........"  I looked at certificate information in detail but I did not find any difference.  

2)delete Google Docs gadget and reinstall
I did reinstall twice.  Second time even re-starting PC after delete the gadget.  But the symptom continues.  untill now I thought it is only at first list page of Google Docs and individual file is with Green Lock.  But it is happening when I open each file too.  And it is more confusing. details are

3) individual Docs with Red Skull vs Green Lock
3.1) Open each file via Green Locked page, appears with Green Lock.
3.2) open each file via Red Skulled page appears with Red Skull, but with new second window, the same file opened through Red Skulled page appear Green.  Then I close first doc with Red Skull and go to Green Lock doc, refresh page then it become Red Skull.

I am confused.  Red Skull is not easy to ignore.  I miss Orange Triangle with Exclamation mark.  Now I am just hoping that this in not my PC's problem.

if it was just about the "grey globe" i would probably not get this hassled up...but whats pestering is the fact that ever since this icon appears i have not been able to access facebook and may be many have encountered the same problem...n yes, as a matter of coincidence i was also not able to access facebook through internet explorer.. everything seems to be in a topsy-turvy...somebody please get us out of this !!
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/12/10 8:04 AM
@togooornottogoo

So the problem is that Docs has some resources on the page that are not encrypted.  The problem is not with Chrome.  You should get the same info from the Red Skull&Cross-bones as with the old Orange Triangle.  You may not like the new icon, but nothing else has changed. The Red Skull is a bit over the top, considering Google's own apps make it appear......! It is an effective warning marker, but gives alarm at things even Google is happy with. Not joined-up thinking I agree.

Chrome will automatically upgrade to 6.0 on your other computer soon, you will not get a choice.  This is done because the latest version is always the most secure. As holes in browsers are found, they are fixed, so it is always best to be on the latest version, even if it has an alarming-looking icon.

For your peace of mind, if your documents contain sensitive information, you can try to use them by the route that gives the green padlock. As such, the Red Skull is doing you a favour, as it is alerting you to something you were ignoring before, although it is probably not an issue. Gmail has had the same problem in the past. It's unsettling, but probably not important at all. In theory, the non-encrypted elements of the page could be intercepted, read and/or altered in transit, but the rest would be OK.

If you have the same problem in IE, then the problem is not your browser.  Do you mean your password wouldn't work, or the facebook site wouldn't load.  Is it ok now?

Chrome has simply been upgraded to version 6.0, with an altered layout.  I have not come across problems with it affecting facebook.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/12/10 8:22 AM
@BillRamp

It may be Virgin doesn't encrypt your mail, except the login.  Chrome is telling you what the situation is.  That is what the Security Information pop-up and the different icons (globe, padlock, etc) are for.  The grey globe tells you it is an ordinary web page.  With the other icons, the pop-up tells you more about what the icon means.  Does Virgin mail have https:// at the start of the web address except for the login page?  If not, they don't encrypt it.  The new version of Chrome has simply alerted you to the way things have always been.

I've been having the same problem. However googlr chromeworks onone computer/laptop but not the other. I also have the grey earth on both laptops. On the laptop that isn't working it says the page may be down or has moved, but Internet Explorer works. I hope they sort it out soon.

Thank you for your support.  I will delete that gadget forever which giving me little scare.
I had created short cut at Bookmarks bar for Google doc, and all files appears with Green Lock.


Just FYI
I created new files without any input.  Blank Document, Blank Spreadsheet, Blank Presentation and Blank Drawing.
no input at all except file name.  test01, test02,....
and Tried to see what happen

Red Skull appears with Document file and Presentation file.
Spreadsheet and Drawing file are with Green Lock.

are there anything common between G-mail and Google Document and Presentation but not with spreadsheet neither with drawing?

I don't really understand enough how Docs works, but I think it is other elements of the page that are not encrypted, such as the menu bar, or some script, so it makes no difference if it is an empty document.  It is parts of how the app works, I think.  Maybe spreadsheet and drawing have more up-to-date scripts.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/12/10 9:51 AM

Does Chrome not work at all on your laptop, or is it just one page didn't load?  Could try the same page in Chrome and IE on both your computers.  Sounds more like a (temporary) page fault than Chrome.

Ok this clears a lot up for me. Earlier this year I got some sort of hijacker virus and it did similar thins to my browsers. So when I saw this change I freaked a little.

I've been on top of security and software updates like a hawk, so I became really disheartened when I thought I would have to reformat my drives again.

I am having the same problem, and I honestly was blocked few times and could not access my google account, and had to change my password since. I am having some weired issue, I am changing my password everyday. Another problem I am having is that when using facebook chat, it keep refreshing facebook main page  and most of  what I wrote on the chat did not go or register at all, I am not happy about what is going on in the past few days.

Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/13/10 7:53 AM
When you are looking at the tab with Gmail in it, you should have the green padlock. Check that the address bar shows https://mail.google.com/ .

It is possible you have https switched off in Gmail.  Click Settings at the top right of Gmail, then under the General tab, see whether the "Always use https" is selected for Browser connection.

When you say you were blocked from Gmail, do you mean it would not accept your password?  It is easy to type a password wrong and believe it is another reason.

This forum is not an encrypted page, so a grey globe is what you should see now.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted Toni (Googler) 9/13/10 6:36 PM
Hi everyone, 

The gray globe is part of our effort to streamline the address bar. It doesn't necessarily imply that anything is wrong, but simply is the icon for a URL. If you're on a secure (using SSL) site, you may see an icon such as the green lock or other icons for different cases. You can find more information about these new address bar changes in a past Chromium blog post listed in ref 1.

If you have concerns about the skulls and crossbones icon, please know that it means that some of the resources on the current page weren't loaded securely (using SSL). We refer to this as "mixed content." The site you're on probably hasn't changed, we've just made these warnings more prominent as mabb mentioned. However, we're receiving a lot of feedback about the skulls and crossbones being too alarming. We're looking into ways to address this concern and will keep everyone updated. In the interim, please check out the help article that mabb also provided which mentions what these new icons mean in ref 2. 

mabb - Thank you taking the time to explain what these new changes mean to everyone! We're working on making this information more discoverable as well, but you've been extremely helpful!

Toni

Hi I was using Google chrome just fine until the earth icon turned gray and chrome started crashing very frequently especially when I use the google search bar. When I click on the grey globe it says that my connection is not encrypted and that the website is not verified. It does that with almost every website I have visited so far. I even uninstalled and re-installed google chrome but the problem still hasn't went away.

im having same problems..but i also cant acces my usual sites from google cause they dont work properly..since the update,its all gone bad,only way to yous my bookmarks from google is to right click on bookmark and open in incognito window.to go to my usual sites..it become a headache.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/16/10 10:01 AM
@normz

Can you explain more what you would usually do to access your bookmarks, and what happens now when you do that.

Note that to get the bookmark bar to appear if it is missing, you have to press Ctrl-Shift-B now.  To get to the bookmark manager, go to the wrench menu or press Alt+E, then press B on its own.

In the bookmark manager, double-click opens the bookmark, or you can drag the bookmark to the tab bar of any Chrome window - a little white arrow will appear to show you which tab the bookmark will open in if you release the mouse button.

It does work to drag & drop a url into a bookmark folder, but it is not as easy as it was before the change.

I've noted several times a fix to retrieve old features is to right-click on chrome icon.  That may work if it's on your desktop, but if it's in a dock, it doesn't work.  How does one retrieve old features easily in this situation?

And, I too, do not like the changes.  I like the previous contact format; yes, you can change to the old view, but you have to do it every single time you access your contacts.  Major inconvenience!   Gimme the old views & features!!!
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 9/16/10 10:49 AM
@jazzerie

The bookmark star is at the right of the address bar.  If you click it, it works how it used to.

Do you mean right-click the desktop icon, to use the option "Restore previous versions".  If you don't have a desktop icon, you can type Chrome into the Start Menu in Windows, then right-click there for this option.  (You can also make a desktop icon from there by choosing "Send to...desktop").  However, Chrome is designed to auto-update to the latest version (weekly I think).  The latest version is always the most secure, as newly-found security loopholes are regularly fixed, so for security it's best to use the latest one.  The latest Chrome is not so different to use from the previous one, once you are used to the new position of the bookmark star.

@Shneep

I don't know much about your problem. You might start a new question on the help forum for the blogging service you are using.  For example, Blogger has its own forum. This would attract more people who could help, or who are having the same problem.

What blogging service are you using?
Do you have the same problem if you use a different browser to edit your blog?

A possible suggestion is that, without realising it, you are going about things very slightly differently than before.  For example, try selecting text after you have typed it, then choose a color for the selected text.  If you try to set the color before you type, it may inadvertently get reset to the previous colour or the default color before you begin to type your text.  I have had similar things happen colors in Gmail.

Or something else could have changed, such as the blogging software.  There is no obvious reason why it should be caused by the Chrome update.

@ mabb

Thanks. I'll check it out and see. Yes,I am using Blogger. And I do select my text and choose a color. I should check it out then. Thanks anyway.

The problem is reoccouring. Simply by changing your Chorme theme will fix this.

My home button has now disappeared and the arrow and refresh keys have changed colour?
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 10/4/10 9:57 AM
@deleriousgem

For the home button, try clicking the wrench icon, choose "Options" from the menu, select the Basics tab.  Under "Homepage", make sure there is a tick in the "Show Home button" box, then close the pop-up.

No idea why other buttons should change colour.  Mine haven't.  Are you using a theme?  You could post a new question on this.

To see what version of Chrome you are on, click the wrench, then choose "About Google Chrome" from the menu.  Is your version 6.0.472.63  ?

Obviously there is a problem and and we are getting no help. I started experiencing this problem yesterday Tuesday October 19, 2010. why do I have to use another web browser to visit Facebook or other websites when I wish to use chrome for all my web surfing? Obviously if more than one people are reporting this problem, multiply us by thousands and millions and you will see how big this problem is. Its like every browser does something the other one does not do correctly. why am I getting "the identity of this website has not been verified" and "your connection to www.facebook.com is not encrypted". How can that problem be solved, fixed, adjust so that every time I go to the website I wont have to worry about anything or it connects automatically.

You are simply clicking the grey globe icon, which brings up the Security Information pop-up.

This information has always been available, only the icon has been moved in Chrome 6.  It is explained on the help page at the reference below.

Facebook, like most web pages, has never been encrypted.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted business genius 10/21/10 9:29 AM
@mabb Well thank you for that answer, however is there a way to allow it to go through, over ride, put on a list to unblock? So it appears its a Facebook issue then, not a Chrome issue.

Here is a thread about problems logging into Facebook from Chrome:

Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted cmrayer 10/27/10 2:50 AM
The problem for me is that secure websites with the correct certificates (I know as I run some of them and the others are https://www.google.com etc.) are now showing the grey globe with yellow blob even though they are secure in ALL other browsers...

What has changed in Chrome (Currently running 7.0.517.41 beta)?

Cheers,

Charles

@cmrayer

Can you give other examples of sites with this problem?

I have never seen a grey globe with yellow blob.  You may see a grey padlock with a yellow warning triangle.  Click on it, or any other symbol that appears there, to get the security information for the web page you are viewing.

See the Reference given 4 answers above this one, for the help page explaining these icons in detail.

The example you gave has a green padlock for me.  I am running the same version of Chrome as you.  I have not found any changes on this in Chrome 7, except new icon designs.

@cmrayer - mabb is right. You should only see a gray globe or a lock with a yellow triangle, but not both. Maybe you mean just gray lock with yellow triangle? It would help if you provide a screenshot?

I'm not sure what example you gave mabb, but if you think the gray lock with yellow triangle is showing up incorrectly, please provide some specific URLs so we can troubleshoot.

I have had a lock with a yellow triangle pop up on chrome.

could someone shed some light and is there a fix?

thx
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 10/28/10 11:36 AM
@deleriousgem

Chrome is indeed a safe browser, as safe as any browser. The icons like the grey padlock with the yellow triangle are just telling you information about the web page you are viewing. That helps to protect you, as you would have no way of knowing how secure the web page is otherwise!

Web page security issues are the same regardless of which browser you use. The issues are with the web page, not the browser.

The grey padlock with yellow triangle means the page contains "inactive mixed content". Basically, this means there is something like an advert or a picture on the page which was not encrypted when it was sent across the internet, but other parts of the page were encrypted.

It is explained if you click on the Reference given below. If you have time to read it, you may understand more about online security. On that help page, click where it says "Mixed content" to read more. You can also click to read what "Invalid certificates" are.

Mostly, the yellow triangle not particularly concerning, whereas the grey padlock with the red cross is showing a higher risk web page.

But if you are trying to do something secure, like online banking, you should look for the green padlock. If you do not see the green padlock for a secure transaction, you could click the icon, and see information about why the page is not fully secure for sending personal information like banking details.

Remember, the security issues will be exactly the same, regardless of which browser you use. Chrome just gives you more information so you know about it and can decide whether to use the page. For example if you went to a malicious site instead of your bank without knowing it, Chrome would warn you.

The help page refers to "SSL".  That is just the name for how pages are encrypted for online banking and similar purposes.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 10/28/10 11:42 AM
@cmrayer

The yellow triangle does not indicate an invalid certificate.

It shows that there is "inactive mixed content" on the page. This means the main content of the page is encrypted and securely transmitted by SSL, but there is other content, such as an advert from a third-party site, which is not sent by SSL.

@Toni (Googler)

Surely it would be helpful to put a "Learn more" or "What does this mean?" link to the help page from the Security Information pop-up.  The "Under the Hood" section of Options has a link to a help page.

Not really sure what you mean, but see this thread about Facebook login and messaging problems:

@mabb - Sorry for the delayed response. Regarding placing a link to the help article from the security information dialog, this is already done. =) However, it's currently only on the Beta/Dev channels of Google Chrome but will eventually make its way to the Stable channel. 

Again, thanks for your diligence in explaining how this works to everyone!

I don't get a gray planet - my page won't open, and I cannot sign in.

@harveyed  I have seen your original question on another post.

If this problem happens on your other browsers it is because your computers date of month, day, year and clock time may be incorrect.

Nearly every site I visit boots me and says the site is unverified or verification has expired. This seems to occur with sites I visit on a daily basis, such as Facebook and Hotmail. More often than not the page will not load, or will load some text but without allowing access to links.

This is obviously a Google Chrome error and, until it is resolved, it's back to Firefox.
Re: identity of this website has not been verified and your connection to "www." is not encrypted mabb 2/24/11 3:34 PM
@Ashfont  Not sure what you mean. Where does it say the site is unverified/expired? Do other sites do this as well as Facebook and Hotmail?

Try pressing Shift+F5 if this happens, in case your Chrome cache is corrupted - it will force the page to ignore the cache.
