Final warning for http sites on google
Final warning for http sites which are not secured. Google has strictly instructed to secure your website and if not secured then you may lose traffic.
Google will now show a warning signal on the search bar as “not secure” while browsing.
Now that it’s confirmed, the browser will show a warning signal to visitors from October 2018. Previously Google informed users to update its site by July but seems like Google is giving one last chance for site owners.
At present chrome displays a green icon when a site is secured but in an upcoming month if your site is not secured then a “Red Icon” will be visible and that might scare your visitors to move out from website immediately.
Final warning for http which should not be ignored
If you check in un-secured site then you will find an “icon” and besides that, a “Not secure” will be visible.
At present, you can see the “Not Secure” with a gray icon but wait…
Take a look at an icon after October 2018.
Final warning for http that needs implementation right away
You should consider implementing the SSL certificate for your website at a very right movement. SSL was only meant for e-commerce websites but not its affected to all the sites.
A not secure signal will scare your visitors and this may affect an increase of website bounce rate and drop in sales.
Now that you know how important it is to secure your site. The update is not much far so contact your hosting provider and secure your website right now. Chrome will start showing warning signal from October 2018.
Google will soon declare the secured site as a ranking factor, not a major one but of course slightly. Secure now!
