Starting October 2017, Chrome (version 62) will show a “NOT SECURE” warning when users enter text in a form on an HTTP page, and for all HTTP pages in Incognito mode. Most industry experts suspect that this is Google’s first step in this process and that, in time, all pages of all websites not protected by an SSL Certificate will show a “NOT SECURE” message. What’s more is that it is predicted that most other browsers (IE, Edge, Firefox, Safari) will eventually follow Chrome’s lead in the name of security.
Here is an example of an email that site owners are receiving from Google:
What is an SSL Certificate?
An SSL Certificate is used to create an encrypted connection between the server that hosts your website and the web browser on a customer’s computer. Traditionally, SSL Certificates were required if money or sensitive info was being transacted or transmitted through a website. Encryption of this information provides for safe passage from one computer to another. Nowadays, with all of the security threats out there, the thought from industry leaders like Google is: Why not simply encrypt everything?
What should website owners do?
It is fair to assume that sooner or later, that doing nothing will no longer be an option for website owners. Simply put, your existing customers and users will become confused or frustrated, and potential customers will move on to websites that do not generate warning messages.
