How to View SSL/TLS Certificate Details in Chrome 56 (and newer)
Article Number: 000070635
Starting in Chrome 56, you will no longer be able to see details about a website’s SSL/TLS certificate by clicking on the padlock icon in the address bar.
This change is being made as part of Chrome’s campaign to simplify their security UI/UX and tailor it for a more mainstream audience that does not know what SSL/TLS certificates, Certificate Authorities, or key signature algorithms are.
For the power-users and developers who do want to see details about their HTTPS connection and the site’s SSL/TLS certificate, you will need to go to the Security tab in Developer Tools. Here’s how to do it.
1. Open Chrome Developer Tools
The quickest way there is with a keyboard shortcut:
|Windows and Linux||Ctrl + Shift + i||F12|
|Mac||? + Option + i|
You can also get to Chrome’s Developer Tools by opening the Chrome menu (?) then by going to More Tools -> Developer Tools.
2. Select the Security tab. If it is not shown, select the >> as shown below.
3. Select View Certificate.
