Starting with the release of Chrome 62, Google will mark any website with an insecure form “Not Secure”. Are you using web forms and not using SSL yet now, be ready to have a Not Secure tag resulting in losing visitors. It’s the time as by October once Google Chrome 62 is released, Google will be showing any website using insecure form to “Not Secure”.
A lot of website owners are ignoring this with a thought that it is just mere for website taking payments or E-commerce Websites whereas it is not. If your website has any kind of form of a contact form, user input, feedback, appointment or any other form which asks a user to fill it, you need to have SSL on that website.
Google’s push for Universal Encryption and since September 2016 it is doing a lot of changes in Chrome so that website owners can add SSL to there website as by 2018 all websites using HTTP will have such Not Secure warnings.
Why wait for more for Encryption. If you are using a website for business or it is an earning source for you, encrypt it. It does not matter even if you are using just a small subscription form as even that has to be secure.
Not Secure decreases visitors and conversions.
