Is Your Website Safe?

September 26, 2017

Earlier this year, Google announced that Chrome will “mark HTTP pages that collect passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.”

What does this mean for you?

If your website is not HTTPS (aka secure) your website will show up as non-secure. With HTTP it is a breeze for hackers to modify your website. Previously, Google did not make it obvious if a website was not secure. Now, websites in Chrome will show up like this:

Not Secure

HTTPS is fairly cheap to have and brings a plethora of benefits. It verifies your integrity between the website and a computer, ensuring that confidential information does not get into the wrong hands.
