Is your website still not using HTTPS?

Whether you think that your site doesn’t need HTTPS, you don’t know how to make the change or you just don’t think this is a priority right now, this latest update from Google should push you to action…

Starting January 2017, Chrome 56 will label HTTP pages with password or credit card form fields as “not secure,” given their particularly sensitive nature.

In other words, the world’s most widely used browser will start warning your visitors that your site is not secure if you’re not using HTTPS. Aside from the security, performance and possibly even the SEO benefits, this Google Chrome update is reason enough to convince you to get HTTPS setup on your website right away.
