In an effort to make the Internet’s website more secure, Google is pushing a new update to their Chrome browser starting October 2017. This update will show a “NOT SECURE” warning for all websites with a search form, contact form or any other form field. The reason for doing so is that Google wants to ensure that all communication between the client (website user) and the server are securely encrypted.
Why does my Website need SSL?
So,if your website visitors visit your website on Chrome, they will see a “NOT SECURE” warning on your contact form – not a nice sight and it does not convey credibility and security of your business.
