New Chrome SSL certificate warnings
From October 2017 Chrome will be showing new ‘NOT SECURE’ warnings when you enter text in a form on any http webpage.
Why? Because you will be entering personal information on to a website without an SSL certificate which allows secure connections from a web server to a browser, protecting your data.
The new warning is part of a long term plan to mark all pages served over HTTP as ‘not secure’.
You might ask why do I need an SSL certificate?
SSL Certificates protect your sensitive information such as credit card information, usernames, passwords etc. It also:
- Keeps data secure between servers
- Increases your Google Rankings
- Builds/Enhances customer trust
- Improves conversion rates
