The Chrome internet browser by Google will soon begin labeling sites as “Not Secure” if they don’t use HTTPS. This significant change is slated to push out to the public in July 2018.
The image below was taken from last week’s blog post from the Chrome team. This shows the upcoming change as a comparison from now to after the browser update.
Google Chrome controls a majority of the browser market share today across both desktop and mobile, so sites that don’t use HTTPS should be concerned about how their users will receive the “Not secure” notice.
The good news is all of our WordPress hosting and maintenance plans include full encryption at no added cost, so if you’re an existing All My Web Needs subscription customer you have nothing to worry about. If you’re not an existing subscriber and don’t have HTTPS on your website, you should consider contacting us to see about getting your website encrypted.
