I follow our member Conor (aka @BigRedSEO around the forums) on Facebook and today he posted a video informing his audience that Google announced "Not Secure" warning will come into action starting July 2018, if you don't have an active SSL installed on your website.

The video is only a minute and a half, but he explains what Google intends to do, what it means for your website and how you can a problem from arising.

I hate the fact that the screen sharing didn't work, but it did help keep that video nice and short! Thanks for sharing it Artashes!

In the next few weeks, the mad scramble will start to speed up as users try to get their sites secure.

As @easyhostmedia mentioned, this is happening on FireFox and will also be happening on Bing too. Timelines vary with different browsers, but at the end of the day, the goal is for EVERYONE to be on HTTPS connections all the time.

a lot of people will just get the free ones from cpanel and lets encrypt, which will be fine for simple personal sites, but no good for commercial sites

I think it's a good move, there's no reason not to use SSL on all pages for a commercial site.

With personal sites as Terry said the free SSls should do the job.

It is getting people to understand for commercial sites you really need a paid SSL, but it is like the free Anti Virus brigade.

Why pay when i can get one free, they wont take it in that free AV is limited (hence why it is free) and that a free SSL does not give the same assurance as a paid SSL.

As a consumer, I'd never buy anything from a site who refused to spend money on a certificate... Ever. These things cost about $1/month, if that, and honestly, if you don't have that money to spend on your business, then you need to be elsewhere.

Now, for a game, or something like that, why the hell not. Long as you don't collect $$$, go for it. that's what LE was designed for.

this is one of the main reason cPanel introduced the AUTOSSL that when enabled adds a free SSL to all accounts that dont have a paid SSL.

It is progress just like any domain that needed and SSL also needed a dedicated IP but then SNI was introduced which means a dedicated IP is no longer needed

The free certs dont give validation badges, good thing with the free cpanel certs is if you have a paid ssl, this will secure main domain, but not any sub domains, so cpanel auto SSL will add SSL to the sub domains.
