Google, and the other web browsers have fully implemented the Not Secure statement in the URL bar on your website. Plus in many cases, they splash a large red SITE IS NOT SECURE message which also says, STAY SAFE-BACK OUT OF THE SITE.
Your website is your front door to your business, and the place where contact info is displayed for your customers.
How many BACK AWAY THAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT?
Google let us all know in September 2017 that this was coming and in January 2018 it was implemented, yet hundreds of thousands of you have not secured your website. The implementation has now propagated the Internet and the security statements are being seen everywhere.
Here is what Google puts on your customer’s screen when they go to your UNSECURED website…
Your connection to this site is not secure.
You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example: passwords or credit cards) because it could be stolen by attackers. To see whether a website is safe to visit, you can check for security info about the site. Google Chrome and other browsers will alert you if you can’t visit the site safely or privately. To check a site’s security, to the left of the web address, look at the security status. You can click on the BLOCK THIS SITE by Default link as well.
A closed lock means the site is secure; an i info symbol provides information or Not Secure; An exclamation inside a triangle means the site is not secure and dangerous; a full screen NOT SECURE message (usually in red) may also be shown. You will see the closed lock and https in the URL at the top of this page. If you do not see the closed lock for your site, but you have https, it means that not everything being loaded into your website is in a secure tunnel. Your site needs some fixing.
A Security Certificate is Required. When you go to a site that uses HTTPS (connection security), the website’s server uses a certificate to prove the website’s identity to browsers.
