News & tips

We emailed all Zipfish customers back in February with the news that Google Chrome had begun to mark all sites without a security certificate as 'not secure', and we've since installed certificates for many clients. Now the Mozilla Firefox browser has followed suit and is alerting users to unsecured sites, and Google has announced that the information symbol it currently uses to mark such sites will be replaced in due course with a red warning triangle, indicating danger.

This is a particular problem for sites where users are required to log in or enter details - for instance, sites with online shops - but all sites are affected, and the obvious danger is that visitors will panic and leave as soon as they see the warning. The cost of installing a free Let's Encrypt security certificate, site configuration and testing is £30. If your site doesn't have a certificate already and you'd like one installed, please get in touch.
