SECURITY NEWS | FEBRUARY 2018
All types of website: business, freelance, creative, agency or blogger will need SSL.
Unless you want Google telling visitors that your website is NOT secure, then you must have a security certificate.
From July 2018, Google Chrome will display a warning message on HTTP web sites with any type of form as “Not Secure”.
To secure a website (HTTPS), a security certificate must be installed.

Avoiding the Not Secure Warning in Chrome
As announced in September 2016, Chrome will soon mark non-secure pages containing password and credit card input fields as Not Secure in the URL bar.
Long term – Use HTTPS everywhere
Eventually, Chrome will show a Not Secure warning for “all pages” served over HTTP, regardless of whether or not the page contains sensitive input fields. Even if you adopt one of the more targeted resolutions above, you should plan to migrate your site to use HTTPS for all pages.
