Starting in September, websites that aren’t secure will start being flagged in Google’s Chrome browser.  If your website starts with HTTP that means visitors will see something like this when they go to your site:

Not Secure
SOURCE:  Google

“Users should expect that the web is safe by default, and they’ll be warned when there’s an issue,” Emily Schechter, Product Manager, Chrome Security said via blog post.
