Why I do not see the lock icon in the address bar?
If you are on the encrypted (https://) version of your web site and you do not see the lock icon, it means that some of your content such as an image, css or js file is loaded from unsecured (http://) location. Make sure that all your web site resources are loaded from secure locations.
To investigate which files are causing the mixed content problem, open your web browser developer tools and look for errors and warnings.
Why I do not see the green address bar?
Free domain validated certificates will only display a lock icon in the address bar.
Green address bar require Extended validation certificates. Those are the most expensive certificates and you must validate your physical address and identity.
