"Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?" Mixed HTTP and HTTPS encrypted content
Last modified on 25 April 2017 01:27 AM

The reason you are seeing the message "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?" has to do with the HTTPS encryption that Ixquick uses. Here's how it works. 

When you search with StartPage by Ixquick, we look at each of the search results we return to you to see if there is a secure, encrypted HTTPS version of that page available. If it is, we automatically link to that version in our web results. Normally this happens transparently.

On some occasions,when you click through to a "secure" site, that external website included content that is not encrypted with HTTPS protection - so-called "mixed content". When this happens, your browser will give you a warning message asking if you want to view only the "secure" content carried out over HTTPS, or the entire page, including those elements not served securely.

Generally, all page content should be carried over HTTPS or HTTP, not a mix. If presented with the option to accept mixed content, the safer option is to only view the content delivered securely.
