What is Mixed Content?

Mixed content occurs when initial HTML is loaded over a secure HTTPS connection, but other resources (such as images, videos, stylesheets, scripts) are loaded over an insecure HTTP connection. Modern browsers display warnings about this type of content to indicate to the user that this page contains insecure resources.
