Google’s Chrome browser will soon be labelling sites that do not have SSL with the label, “Non-secure”.
I don’t know if you recognize just how big a deal that is – but some studies show that more than 50% of web visitors will immediately leave a site that has this label.
Passwords and credit cards are not the only types of data that should be private. Any type of data that users type into websites should not be accessible to others on the network, so starting in version 62 Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning when users type data into HTTP sites.
Security has always been important. Years ago, adding SSL was both expensive and it slowed things down a lot – it is no longer crazy expensive, and it is no longer slowing things down.
Every business needs to have SSL on their website.
