Don't Understand Hummingbird Report

This is part of my latest report from Hummingbird. What am I supposed to do? Is it safe?

None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

    Hi Toni,

    Hope you're doing well today

    I had a look at your site reports and it looks like there are couple of things that you can improve there.

    I see that you have Hummingbird installed so first thing to do is go to enable Browser Caching and GZIP compression, that will take care of the "Leverage browser caching", "Minify JavaScript" and "Minify CSS" reports.

    Next thing to do is to to go Hummingbird > Minification panel and adjust the settings there, you should change loading position and combine as many files as possible while still maintaining your site functionality.
    This process unfortunately can't be fully automated as it depends on the theme and plugins you are using on your site so you will need to tweak the settings for best results.

    You should also consider installing server side caching plugin like WP Super Cache or similar which will improve your server response time.

    Is it safe?

    These are all reports to improve your site loading speed so basically there's nothing that invades your site security but you should improve site speed for better Google results and more enjoyable user experience.

    Best regards,
    Predrag
