View Site Information and Site Settings in Chrome on the Computer

Do you want to view site security information and settings in the Chrome browser? Learn how to access and manage site-specific permissions and settings.

The Google Chrome browser allows you to check the connection status and security between the browser and the web server. You can check the validity of the security certificate to confirm the connection is secured.

It also offers the option to customize the site-specific settings to enable or disable the various browser services the site can access.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to view site information and configure site settings in the Google Chrome browser.

View Site Certificate and Security Information

As mentioned, to view site information, the site information feature helps alert the insecure connections and read the site information like certificate details, etc. Here are the steps to view site information of any site:

  1. Launch Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Open the Website where you want to check the information.
  3. Click on the Padlock padlock icon within the URL bar.
    Check if the site connection is secure or not.
  4. Choose the Certificate open for more information on validation.

  1. Launch Chrome app on your computer.
  2. Open the Website where you want to check the information.
  3. Click on the Padlock padlock icon within the URL bar.
  4. Choose the Site Settings menu for customization.

This will help you to change the site-related settings like sound, notification, microphone, etc., to customize the site settings Chrome specific to the website.

You can also clear the cookies and cache data for the selected site and even reset the permissions settings.

Bottom Line

The Google Chrome feature for alerting about insecure sites is outstanding. It helps verify the website’s authenticity and credibility by allowing us to view the network connection certificate.

Site settings help you manage all the permission you have given to a particular page. You can block the permission at any time, such as camera microphone, location, etc., so the site won’t be able to use such services.

Similarly, you can view site information and configure permissions in Chrome on Android. Though we do not see all the options as we do in the Chrome computer browser, it’s limited to a few services and permissions.
