Yellow warning triangle on Paypal account address ?

  crespo 02:55 06 Nov 2013

I was checking my payments history in my Paypal account when i noticed a yellow warning triangle over the padlock in the address bar. The https:// part is still there, so i'm wondering has my account been hacked as it says the content on the page may be insecure. The green padlock was showing when i first logged into Paypal.

The yellow triangle means that some of the resources (maybe just images) are not secure (e.g. not from a secure source). It is not uncommon for this to happen and usually nothing to worry about.

It happens because the website designers/developers haven't done their job properly. If a site is meant to be secure (https), then all of the resources should really be taken from a secure (https) server. Clearly some developers are lazy and take some resources from http servers.

Check that only secure content is displayed. In internet options, security tab, scroll down to miscellaneous then to Display Mixed Content. I've got it set as the default 'Prompt' though you can select disable if you don't want the popup. That might help.
