    Default What is the lock near the url?

    I always noticed that the lock is either green or gray, as for example on this forum, and sometimes it is completely crossed out. What does this mean? Is it related to security?

    As far as I know, this sign indicates the encryption level. For example, if the block is green, the site has good encryption. If you see a crossed-out block, then this site is not secure.

    As far as I know, this sign indicates the encryption level. For example, if the block is green, the site has good encryption. If you see a crossed-out block, then this site is not secure. To get this green lock, the owner has to buy an ssl certificate.

    Yes! It indicated that the website uses a SSL certificate! basically that sign means that the site you are surfing through is the authentic one and is secure.
