Update: August 18, 2017
When Chrome 62 is released in October, Chrome will show a “Not Secure” warning anytime someone starts typing into a form field that’s on a non-https page. In addition, the browser (that just so happens to have the most marketshare!) will show a “Not Secure” warning immediately upon opening a non-https page in Incognito Mode.
In other words, it’s crunch time if you still have not secured your website with SSL so it shows “https” in the URL bar.
This also means that eCommerce sites shouldn’t just use SSL for the cart/checkout/thank you pages. All pages should be running within the SSL’s environment.
Not sure if your site is using SSL? Enter your homepage here: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/. You should get a grade of A if it’s installed correctly.
Need a new host that makes it easy to set up SSL? Check out the details about WP Engine below. Continue reading “Chrome will soon mark all non-SSL sites as “Not Secure” [updated: last chance]”
