Using Shields up in both IE and Chrome

Hi,
Can any one throw some light on this problem I have come across recently, I have perfumed a shields up scan with their All Service Ports Scanner which resulted in all being okay using IE11 but performing the same scan using Google Chrome (latest version) showed that Secure Port 443 is open why is this any answers using non tech speak would be helpful as not really tech minded but Security Minded all the same, I did a little research on the subject but it opened up more questions than answers .

Yes I am the reason for the question was a matter of if it's showing in stealth with one browser how can I get the same result in the other

If you're behind a NAT router and haven't enabled remote management, port forwards or similar then nothing should be open. Well, possibly UPnP if you have that enabled.
I don't use Chrome either and the only thing I can think of is testing with plugins disabled in Chrome. It shouldn't make any difference, but who knows...

After reading and following the links provided which led to more info,my take on this problem rightly or wrongly is that Google run their SSL/TSL through this port which they monitor for phishing spam and other stuff to make their browser safe which they inform you in the techy stuff they post on their HELP FORUM that's the norm for the browser..

That doesn't make any sense to me. Do you have a link for this?

Have you installed the Remote Desktop App for Chrome or anything like that? https://support.google.com/chrome/an...49523?hl=en-GB

Having tried to find the links I used before I can't seem to find them again, and re re reading some of the previous stuff and as I said at the onset of my question that I was not techy minded, I felt I have made a mistake on my understanding of Google chrome and the SSL/TSL statement in my previous post.In answer to your question re Remote desk top app No I haven't,I guess I should have asked this question in a chrome forum, I thought it may be a settings problem due to it showing stealth mode In IE and not in Chrome I have looked into my router settings and the Firewall Level Settings are showing a setting designated by my ISP as their own what ever they are,I'm no game player so don't need to port forward or what ever they call it..
