Recently, Google announced that Chrome browser will start warning the website does not use the HTTPS protocol since January 2017. First, the warning “not safe” will appear on the page allows the user to enter a password and submit credit card information but still using traditional HTTP protocol. Then, this warning will be expanded to the “anonymous” mode of the browser and the last is the entire web page.

The move comes after Google join a global alliance to create Let’s Encrypt – a standard SSL completely free, provides the opportunity to use SSL for all users. A lot of hosting providers have integrated into the Let’s Encrypt in their cPanel. If you are using a hosting with this available feature, please enable it and quickly move on to use the HTTPS protocol. Because, Google Chrome occupies about 70% of the browser market in the world and being “non-secure alerts” will definitely cause no small damage for prestige as well as SEO of your website.

If your hosting SSL not available for free, you can buy it at the price of only about $9 at Namecheap. Currently, the Hippo Review has also installed SSL, and I am quite satisfied because the site still works quite smoothly. I encourage you should switch to use the HTTPS protocol before Google Chrome conduct warning websites using the HTTP protocol.
