You've probably been hearing a lot about the importance of HTTP to HTTPS Migration. If you haven't yet migrated your WordPress site to HTTPS, time is running out for you. Recently, Google began sending emails to many people who use Google's Search Console. These emails were informing site owners of an upcoming change that would negatively affect their websites. This warning was a reminder of a blog post Google wrote in April of 2017, in which Google said, "Beginning in October 2017, Chrome will show the 'Not secure' warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode." This is what the warning looks like... Every site will need to migrate to HTTPS at some point to avoid having the NOT SECURE warning shown to its visitors. This will affect your site, even if you don't sell anything. Even if you do sell items, and you've already implemented HTTPS on your shopping cart pages, you aren't safe. All pages of your site should migrate to HTTPS to avoid this problem. WHY DO I EVEN NEED HTTPS? Your immediate need is to prevent your website visitors from leaving your site because they believe it to be insecure.
