Time for an SSL Certificate!

Don't put visitors off with an 'Unsecure' message in the browser!

Browser updates on SSL Certificate Requirements

September 1, 2018

Is your website putting visitors off with the ‘not secure’ message in the browser’s address/URL bar?

Google, in keeping their users safe and secure, is now flagging websites that do not have an SSL certificate.

With the release of Chrome version 62, websites with any kind of text input now need an SSL certificate.

  1. Does your website takes text inputs in the form of login panels, contact forms, search bars, etc.
  2. Is your website on HTTP://?

If it’s a YES to both these questions, you need to install SSL to avoid any risks or warnings.

What is an SSL Certificate?

How an SSL Certificate Works
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.

This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

With SSL certificates, your customers will see visuals like lock icon and green address bar that indicates well-trusted encryption is in use. Well, if I as a customer will see that on your website, I will be assured that my information is traveling safe.
