This is one Google email you should all pay attention to.

Google has announced that as of October 2017, Chrome will be warning visitors that go to non-https pages with forms on.

So what does this mean exactly? Well, basically, if you visit a page on a website that has a form (or any kind of input fields) and the page is HTTP (non-secure) then you will receive a warning from Chrome that the page is not secure.

Why does this matter? Trust! It’s as simple as that. When a visitor is on your site, the last thing you want them to have in the back of their mind is doubt. The second you give them a reason to question whether they should be there, you have lost them.

So what should you do? Well, it’s simple. If you haven’t already setup your site with an SSL (security certificate), then you need to do so ASAP. If you have an SSL and can force the site to redirect all pages to the secure version (HTTPS), then do so. If you cannot yet force the entire site to redirect, then you will need to ensure that ALL pages that have input fields are forced to the secure versions of the page.

When should you do this? Now!
