The security team of Google Chrome has recently announced that the browser will start labeling Http connections as non-secure by the beginning of the January 2017.
So, it has been recommended that site owners should migrate their website to HTTPs to increase the level of security towards the personal and other sensitive data like login credentials. HTTPs is mainly created to help protect the integrity and the confidentiality of sensitive data which moves between the websites and end-users. Without HTTPs, the site’s important or personal information can be stolen.
Emily Schechter, Team Member of Chrome Security, said that “Beginning in January 2017 (Chrome 56), we’ll mark HTTP sites that transmit passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.”
Fact and figure shows that Google Chrome presently holds 55 percent of the mobile and desktop browser market share, in which half of the web browsing individuals will not be able to access your site, without HTTPs. So it is necessary to use HTTPs, especially if you are collecting payment info, passwords or any other personal information on any of your web pages. With HTTPs, Google will also give a slight boost to your website’s ranking.
