Google Chrome says my website is not secure

Google Chrome Marks Websites as Insecure

Beginning in July, Google Chrome, the world’s most popular web browser, will start marking ALL websites as insecure if they are not running under HTTPS. Is your website ready? Are your client websites ready?

If you are not sure if your website is secure, just open up a new tab or browser and go to https://YOUR-WEBSITE-HERE    (of course you will put your website where in place of  YOUR-WEBSITE-HERE  above)

If you get to your website and see this:

How to fix Chrome Insecure SSL Warning

Then this means that your website is potentially not secure or it is setup incorrectly.

You will want to contact your current host or contact us and we can get a new Digital Security Certificate for you and install it. If you are unsure of what to do, please contact us and we will help you.

If you would like to purchase a Digital Security Certificate, please go here. We will install it for free after purchase.


Here are 4 more reasons to make your website secure with  HTTPS:

  • SEO — Google says it’s way past time to move your websites over to HTTPS. They are now giving an SEO ranking boost to secure sites. Simply put, you’ll rank better in SEO.
  • SECURITY — SSL protects your site data and visitors. It encrypts data transferred over the web, like form submissions and credit card transactions.
  • E-COMMERCE —If you’re taking any payments on your website, SSL is non-negotiable. SSL is an absolute must for e-commerce and membership websites.
  • AFFORDABILITY — In the past, SSL certificates could get expensive, but the rapidly transforming web landscape has made switching to SSL practical and affordable.
