Google is set to introduce a new security measure in the Chrome browser that warns users on websites when the web page is not secure. The warning will appear on non-encrypted pages that collect personal or payment information, such as contact forms and ecommerce websites.
As of the 3rd October, Google will flag any website without an SSL certificate as unsafe, displaying a red cross and warning message. Google Chrome Users will be advised to ‘go back to safety’, for many websites this will result in a drop in traffic, sales or online enquiries due to potential customers deeming the site as untrustworthy
