Did you know starting this month Google Chrome will start displaying prominent “Not Secure” notification on websites without an SSL (secure sockets layer)? If you’re not sure, visit your website and check the address bar. If you have an SSL installed, you will see “https” vs. “http”. If you don’t have one, users will be deterred from visiting your website.
Avoid having your website flagged by Chrome as not secure. Install an SSL certificate for your domain and subdomains and offer your website visitors confidence and protection when they go to your site.
BENEFITS OF INSTALLING AN SSL ON YOUR WEBSITE
- Encrypted data, whether payment or contact information, on your website cannot be intercepted
- Visitors have greater trust in your website
- Google and other search engines rank websites with an activated SSL certificate higher than those without one
