At the end of the month, version 56 of the Chrome web browser will be released. There is a significant change in the way it displays websites that are not using HTTPS, also known as SSL. This change may confuse your site visitors or surprise you if you are not expecting it.
What does this mean for me?
If your website is not running HTTPS, a message will appear in the location bar that says “Not Secure” on any pages that collect things like passwords or credit cards, typically found on checkouts, login pages and admin panel access.
This message could deter customers from placing an order or signing up if they feel your website is untrustworthy, especially as website users are getting increasingly more tech savvy.
So what do I need to do?
To ensure your website isn’t affected, an SSL Certificate will need to be installed and configured.
An SSL approved website is also beneficial for SEO and as more sites switch to HTTPS, it’s important your site’s not left behind.
