Visiting "https" Website with Chrome on iOS 10 iPhone
This section provides a tutorial example on how to visit an HTTPS Website with Chrome on iOS 10 iPhone.
If you are using Chrome as a Web browser on an iPhone, you probably notice that Safari works with "https" Websites.
1. Run Chrome on your iPhone and enter "facebook.com" in the address area. The Facebook home page is displayed.
2. Look at the Website address area. You will see that a lock icon is displayed next to the address. Lock icon in the Web address area indicates that this page is secured with the HTTPS protocol.
3. Tap on the lock icon. The connection security information is displayed.
However, Chrome does not offer any function to let you view the details of the certificate used by server. You have to trust Safari that it will validate the server certificate and use it encrypt all data exchanged between you and the server.
