Google is now warning visitors about websites without SSL

Posted in News, Tips & Tricks

SSL Security is now the industry standard

If your website doesn't have SSL, Google thinks now is the time to reconsider.

In fact, if your website is currently allowing login, chances are your visitors are already seeing this warning:

"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."

This has been coming down the pipe for a while. It was first announced in late 2016 that Google Chrome users would start seeing these notices and today it's a standard for everyone. Google has even started sending out automated emails to website owners prompting them to take action. 

Remind me – what is SSL?

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a technology that encrypts the data transmitted between your website and the browser used by your visitors. You can tell a site has SSL by the little green lock next to the website address in your browser.

Having an SSL secure website lets your clients and prospects know that their sensitive information will be safe with you.

Does My Website Need SSL?

If your website is on Tymbrel and you're using the Members App or SimpleCart, then you should get SSL.

Plus, if you're serious about ranking highly on Google (and staying there), SSL will give you a search engine optimization (SEO) boost.

Get SSL on your website.

SSL is available on all Tymbrel websites. Contact the support team today for more details.
