New Chrome 56 actively warns about the absence of HTTPS
(27.1.2017) The newly released version of Google Chrome 56 actively draws attention to the absence of HTTPS on sites that have an unsecured form for the transmission of information. Warnings can be seen on the page with a login dialog or payment.
Why does Chrome warn users?
Google Chrome 56 (as well as the latest version of Firefox) alerts the user to dangerous forms that send sensitive information over HTTP instead of the encrypted HTTPS. Browsers indicate the warning on registration and payment forms. In both cases, sensitive data that is transmitted through HTTP can easily be intercepted.
If your website allows login or payment (by card), check whether the entire site uses the HTTPS protocol and whether it is possible to use a form without HTTPS (an attacker could redirect links from HTTPS to HTTP).
It's time to switch to HTTPS
If you do not have a Web site on HTTPS, it is high time to change it. To enable HTTPS, you need an SSL certificate . If you are unsure which to choose, contact us.
