Beginning in July this year, Google Chrome will flag all HTTP websites as “not secure,” according to a blog post published by Chrome security product manager Emily Schechter. This change will be timed with the release of their Chrome 68 version.
When you visit a website that displays as HTTPS, it has additional security. HTTPS encryption provides protection between your browser and the website you’re visiting. This protection ensures that no one can modify traffic or spy on the session. Without this level of encryption, someone with access to the router could intercept the information sent to the website or even put malware in place.
So, it’s time to purchase an SSL Certificate for your website. This will allow Chrome to flag your site as secure to those who visit. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to give you more details about this change and discuss the steps you need to take. – CMW
