If your website asks customers for sensitive information – usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, etc., your reputation depends on protecting that information. To help users access the web safely, internet browsers are now marking some websites “non-secure”, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.

Historically, when you visited an encrypted website, your browser checked the site’s certificate and warned you if the certificate is expired or illegitimate. Now, it also checks if a website that asks you to enter password or credit card information is not secure. It is recommended that you do not provide your information to the website when you see this waring.

How I do get rid of the “Not Secure” warning on my website?

It’s actually a fairly simple solution, your site should have an SSL Certificate. An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely. SSL Certificates use advanced encryption to prevent hackers from reading any data that passes to or from your site.

A substantial portion of web traffic has transitioned to HTTPS so far, and HTTPS usage is consistently increasing. This is important because when you load a website over HTTP, someone else on the network can look at or modify the site before it gets to you. HTTPS is easier and cheaper than ever before, and enables both the best performance, and new features that are too sensitive for HTTP.

Why do I need an SSL Certificate?

  • Improve SEO by showing Google your site is secure

    Google, the world’s #1 search, engine favors HTTPS-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. So an SSL Certificate not only protects your customer’s data, it helps more of them find you.

  • Avoid warnings saying your site’s not secure

    In addition to eliminating the not secure waring, a site with HTTPS will also display the trusted lock icon in the address bar.

  • Strong SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption protects your data

    SSL Certificates protect your customers’ sensitive information by encrypting the data they send to you, then decrypting it once you’ve received it. It’s the strongest encryption available today.

  • Safely accept credit cards on your website

    If you want to sell online, SSL is a must! It allows you to give customers the payment options they expect and complete the checkout process online, sadly and securely.
