Last call to avoid these browser warnings!

In an effort to drive the world towards secure global internet, Google Chrome began marking all HTTPS web pages as
secure last year. In the space of a year, progress was incredible with developers worldwide transitioning their sites to
HTTPS and making the web safer.

According to Google:

  • Over 68% of Chrome traffic on both Android and Windows is now protected
  • Over 78% of Chrome traffic on both Chrome OS and Mac is now protected
  • 81 of the top 100 sites on the web use HTTPS by default

This month Google has rolled out some more major changes with the Chrome 68 update.
All sites with HTTP will prominently display a warning in the address bar, alerting visitors to the risks of insecure connections.

So why HTTPS?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
