In 1990, MC Hammer declared it to be “Hammer Time”. Fast forward to July 2018, and Google has commemorated this by dropping the HTTPS Hammer within the Chrome Browser.
Over the last several months, we have been recommending to upgrade to HTTPS if this had not already happened. The reason for this is that Google has been hinting for several months that within the Chrome browser non HTTPS sites would be marked as ‘not secure’.
At the time of this announcement, it was clear that making this update was important even if this was several months in the horizon. This month, Google has made good on this promise and has transitioned to marking sites that are not upgraded to HTTPS as not secure within the Chrome Browser.
Even if your site has not yet been upgraded to HTTPS, there is still hope. The process for getting your site upgraded to HTTPS is a quick and easy one and this is something we are glad to assist you with. If you have any questions or would like our assistance on this, give us a call and we can get this taken care of for you.
