Google Upgrading Security Status of Websites


From Google website https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95617?visit_id=1-636220793469939351-2636226280&p=ui_security_indicator&rd=1

Please contact us if you need  to get an ssl certificate. As you can see I may have to install one on this site just to give people confidence.

Check if a site’s connection is secure

To see whether a website is safe to visit, you can check for security info about the site. Chrome will alert you if you can’t visit the site safely or privately.

  1. Open a page in Chrome on your computer.
  2. To check a site’s security, to the left of the web address, look at the security status:
    • Lock Secure
    • Info Info or Not secure
    • Warning Not secure or Dangerous
  3. To see the site’s details and permissions, click the icon. At the top of the panel, you’ll see a summary of how private Chrome thinks the connection is.

What each security symbol means

These symbols let you know how safe it is to visit a site. They tell you if a site has a security certificate, if Chrome trusts that certificate, and if Chrome has a private connection with a site.

Lock Secure
Info Info or Not secure

The site isn’t using a private connection. Someone might be able to see the information you send through this site. We suggest that you don’t enter sensitive details, like passwords or credit cards.

On some sites, you can visit the private version of the page:

  1. Select the address bar.
  2. Delete http://, and enter https:// instead.

If that doesn’t work, contact the site owner to ask that they secure the site and your data with HTTPS.

Warning Not secure or Dangerous

Fix “Your connection is not private” error

If you see a full-page error message saying “Your connection is not private,” your Internet connection or your computer isn’t letting Chrome open the page securely. Learn how to troubleshoot “Your connection is not private” errors.

What a security certificate is

When you go to a site that uses HTTPS (connection security), the website’s server uses a certificate to prove the website’s identity to browsers, like Chrome. Anyone can create a certificate claiming to be whatever website they want.

To help you stay on safe on the web, Chrome requires websites to use certificates from trusted organizations.

My recent work

Hi everyone. I’ve just recently turned freelance after 10 years as a web developer. I thought I’d take this opportunity to say Hello World or as us geeks say- <?php echo “Hello World!”; ?> :).

Here is a link to some of my recent projects. All built on WordPress for it’s core features and designed using bootstrap and jQuery.
