Web browsers to mark pages ‘Non secure’

In a push to make the Internet safer for all users, browsers will soon be issuing a stronger warning to visitors who navigate to a website that does not have the protection of an SSL certificate. An SSL certificate allows secure use of passwords and payment details on websites.

As of last month, Chrome (version 56 and later) now marks pages that collect passwords or credit card details as “Not Secure” unless the pages are served over HTTPS.

This means if your website contains login/password and credit card fields, it will now require use of an SSL Certificate.

What does this mean for your website in the future – Well, for now this only applies websites which contain login or checkout facilities, but Google say that future versions of Chrome will flag all websites that do not have an SSL certificate, therefore it is going to become a necessary feature for all websites.

According to a GlobalSign survey, 84% of shoppers abandon a purchase if data was sent over an unsecured connection and 28.9% look for the green address bar.
