Got SSL? Chrome to Show Not Secure Warning on Forms Starting in October

May 01, 2017

People have just stated talking about it, but we've been talking about it for months. Google has announced that “[in] October 2017, Chrome will show the ‘Not secure’ warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode.” What does this mean for website owners? You need to add an SSL certificate to your website now or else website users will get a warning message on forms and search boxes on your website. Those kinds of warnings could be devastating to business that rely on contact forms for new business communications.

An SSL certificate simply verifies as website and encrypts transactions to secure them. You see secure pages on credit card payment pages in the past, but now you'll want to secure your entire website. Having an SSL certificate on your website is a ranking factor (although small) and to help secure communications and transactions of your website it is a worthwhile investment to add an SSL certificate to your website.
