Why is it Important to have an SSL Certificate on Your Website?
Everyone knows that it is critical you secure any financial data, but even basic personal information such a person’s name, address, phone number and email address should also be secured.
In fact, your website needs to be fully secured no matter how much or how little information you gather from your visitors.
Google Chrome is already marking sites with Not Secure in the address bar if the site asks for any sensitive information (like login information, financial information or other confidential information) when the website does not have an SSL Certificate.
Firefox displays a small padlock with a red diagonal slash through it.
Eventually, all websites without an SSL Certificate will be marked as not secure simply because they are not secure, and not because they are collecting any sensitive information at all.
