07 Feb Google Is Requiring HTTPS for Secure Data in Chrome
In 2017 Google rolled out an update that began marking sites without HTTPS as non-secure for sites visited on Google Chrome. If you haven’t done so, you will want to install and SSL certificate and migrate your site to HTTPS to protect your visitors.
Reel It Back – What Is HTTPS?
Why the update? HTTP websites, as we’ve used them, do not create a secure connection between web servers and clients. However, HTTPS websites do create a secure connection. This secure connection is the reason for the SSL certificate requirement as it makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to observe conversations between your computer device and the site.
