The need to have secure and safe web browsing is more than a mere luxury. Nevertheless, there are still people who think that it is the not the best thing to do for their businesses and online users. Google has decided to start penalizing websites that are not interested in providing their users with a safe online experience.
Over the last few months, the number of websites that are going HTTPS or secure has significantly grown. However, there are still some websites that don’t see secure browsing as an absolute necessity. Their reason might be that it takes a lot of time or that they actually don’t need it.
HTTPS has come a long way. The old days where it would slow down the performance of your website or where it was difficult to deploy are long gone. Today, you are socially and legally responsible for securing the data of the people who are visiting your website. Moreover, using HTTPS will boost your SEO performance and help you access new features that will improve the overall performance of your website. If you are still not convinced, then the penalties will help change your mind. It is time to take an action.
