Secure Sockets Layer used to be an optional feature in websites. It creates a third-party verification that the website is who it claims to be, and there’s a small annual fee to get verified. There are other functions and benefits, but that’s the basic purpose of SSL. Things changed last year with the release of Chrome 68. Google, a big advocate of HTTPS Everywhere, is now telling website visitors (using Chrome 68 and newer) through their web browser and search engine that websites without SSL are considered potentially dangerous and warns the visitor. It’s easy to imagine what kind of impact it will have on web traffic. This article talks about why it’s important to have SSL installed on your website today.
