With the release of Chrome 68 this week, Google is now taking steps to make the web safer and is marking all websites that are not HTTPS as ‘Not Secure’
With a HTTP site there is no SSL Certificate to encrypt your connection to the web server therefore anything sent over a HTTP connection is in plain text. Passwords, names, addresses, personal and bank details etc. are not encrypted giving an attacker the opportunity for to intercept this information.
So, if your website is still running as HTTP, any of your visitors that are using Google Chrome will be warned with a ‘Not Secure’ message when visiting your website.
By upgrading to HTTPS you also get the added benefit of Google algorithms favouring your website so that your Google ranking will be higher!
