Though this information is not helpful in many cases,  it just gives us hope that the website is secured and the connection is encrypted.

If the website connection is unsecured, you might encounter an alert saying — page includes scripts from unauthenticated sources.

  1. Hi, question, going to a website an tapping the info icon shows all the different info but doesn’t show anything about permissions or any option to change permissions for that site. Thx

    How to View Site Settings and Site Information in Chrome Android?
    This is not a question; it is a title. If you want to ask a question, you need a subject and a verb, for example: “How do I view site settings….”The easiest solution, of course, is to eliminate the eroneous question mark.
