Why Chrome is saying that your WordPress site is insecure
Since July of 2018, the release month of Chrome version 68, Google has added an additional notification if you are browsing an insecure site, or one without an SSL Certificate.
Google has been pushing site owners to use SSL for the past few years, and they are now making that stance more aggressive by adding an insecure site notification to Chrome making the average website visitor more aware of the fact that the site they are visiting is not using SSL.
If you fall into the camp of site owners that were not aware of this change, or simply were not sure what to do about it, you’re not alone. Many site owners try to run their sites themselves to keep cost and complication down. This usually results in long term higher cost due to lower productivity of their website, and having to find someone to repair it when things go wrong. This is exactly why we developed WPServiceCall.
WPServiceCall caters to site owners that need one time assistance, as well as site owners that want to keep their site maintained and lower the hassle. All of our plans include managed WP hosting and Free SSL.
The SSL issue with insecure sites on Chrome is just one of many issues that your website can face. Site management can get very complicated and we are here to remove that headache for you, whether it’s customizing your site to better serve your customers, or just maintaining it and keeping an eye on it so you don’t have to.
